With VBR-300, dock walk is out the door

The new VBR-300 Dok-Lok vehicle restraint from Rite-Hite helps secure trailers at the dock to protect against early departure, trailer creep, and dock walk.

Similar to original Dok-Lok restraints, the VBR-300 restrains the trailer by engaging the trailer's Rear Impact Guard (RIG). Mechanical springs provide upward force and constant tension, allowing the unit to maintain contact with the RIG as trailer bed height fluctuates during loading and unloading.

This unit requires only periodic housekeeping and semiannual visual fluid level inspections; no adjustments are necessary. The steel housing protects against damage due to weather, dirt, and debris.

The VBR-300 has a 10" stored height that allows it to accommodate declined dock approaches and most trailer rear impact guard heights. After the trailer has backed into the loading dock, the 4¼"-high angled barrier is hydraulically powered into position, securely holding the trailer's rear impact guard. Interior and exterior red and green lights and signs indicate that the trailer has been properly and securely restrained. The solid-state control system meets the needs of loading docks with universally understood control panel graphics. For more details, contact Rite-Hite, 8900 N Arbon Dr, Milwaukee WI 53223.
