Hold-Down Features

Superior Holding

A custom engineered stainless steel wire mesh gripping device provides superior holding when compared to a ratchet and pawl system or a friction disk / brake band style hold down. The "finger trap" style support grips the aluminum rod over the full length of the grip, 360 degrees. This superior design disperses forces evenly and eliminates high pressure points.

Adjusts To Air Ride Trailers

Adjusts To Air Ride Trailers

Patented overload tension relief system allows leveler to automatically adjust to changing trailer bed heights. Air Ride trailers feature a large trailer bed height differential and the bed significantly moves during the loading / unloading process. Auto-release design coupled with silicone rubber float springs prevent damage to unit during excessive float situations.

Fits Most Levelers

Designed to replace existing hold downs of various sizes and designs. Each mechanical dock leveler manufacturer uses a hold down with four main variables - pin-to-pin length (min / max), preload rating, attachment method (clevis / tab), and pin diameter. The Universal Hold Down model UHD-1000A accommodates most variables by supplying clevises and attachment plates with the most common pin sizes. May not fit older 10 foot long mechanical levelers. **Slight modifications may be required for uncommon attachment layouts.
