Truck locks are an easy way to retrofit brakes to an existing trolley or mobile platform, or as an alternative to braked castors. The truck locks have a foot operated pad that lowers a pad normally with a rubber surface down to the floor, raising the wheels slightly above the ground and providing a friction brake.

The truck lock acts as a brake, as the platform or trolley can no longer move once the truck lock is engaged. The truck lock can easily be disengaged, making it an ideal tool to keep a trolley stable, when loading or offloading. Please see the video below for an explanation.

BZTL series truck locks are of pressed steel construction with a zinc-plated finish (excluding BZTL4 which is cast iron with a black finish)

Truck / Trolley Locks Description

All truck locks are top plate mounted and bolted to the underside of the trolley. The principle on which they work requires a constant gap between the unit and the floor, so it is best to mount the truck lock close to a castor, ensuring that it does not interfere with the free movement and operation of the castor.

A step-down foot-operated pedal moves a skid-resistant rubber pad into friction contact with the floor surface. This is done with a spring-loaded over-cam mechanism that does not lift the load and keeps the operating force low. It also means the load rating of the trolley is not relevant to the truck lock. A second step down pedal raises the footpad. The limited number of parts means there is less to maintain or go wrong.

Where a trolley has four swivel castors, two truck locks are required – one to be fitted at each end, either on the same side or diagonally opposite. Only one truck lock is required at the swivel end of a trolley that has two swivel and two fixed castors.
