Lock-Up™ Vehicle Restraint

Lock-Up™ Vehicle Restraint


The patented NOVA Lock-Up™ Vehicle Restraint is designed to secure an intermodal container chassis, standard trailer and most RIG bar configurations, even styles that have cover plates
or obstructions. Its spring-loaded housing lowers with truck contact, positions the unit with the RIG bar and automatically adjusts to trailer float. The roller slope extension decreases the resistance of carriage travel while it adjusts to the height of the RIG bar and features a wheel assembly that effortlessly
rolls over the pavement to prevent marks/gouges on the dock approach pavement.

Mounts to dock above ground level to stay clear of accumulated precipitation and debris. Protected from the elements with watertight connectors and zinc plating, which provides exceptional corrosion resistance.
