Chris Brady, VP of Sales and Marketing at Northern Dock Systems, demonstrates and explains the key features of the rotating hook trailer restraint–the AR-10K–which includes a 24-hour battery back-up and utilizes smart technology for ultimate safety.

Nordock guarantees these products will outperform all others on the market.

The strongest hold: With mounting forces exceeding 100,000 pounds, our trailer restraints are capable of holding the heaviest trucks while the locking hook secures virtually all rear impact guards in excess of 32,000 pounds of restraining force to eliminate trailer pinch.

One size fits all: Able to lock a variety of trucks with a vertical operating range from 9″ to 30″.

Prevent serious workplace injury/accidents: Ensure the safety of your workers and prevent the truck from moving forward during loading.

Flexible: Hydra-Float barrier automatically adjusts to track movement during loading.

Durable: All components are zinc plated for superior durability and weatherproofing.
