Original Press Release:
Fork Extensions with Push Block Spacer
Fork Extensions with Push Block Spacers are designed to conveniently speed up the time it takes to load a pallet on the back of a fork truck. The spacer length is slightly more than the jam of the truck door. Once you sit the pallet down you can close the trailer door; eliminating the need to back out of the pallet a few inches, pickup the pallet again and push to clear the door. The block also makes it practical to push pallets two and three deep into a truck.
These fork extensions are available with various retainers to keep fork extensions from sliding off of the forks. Lengths available are 48", 54", 60", 72", 84" and 96". These fork extensions will accommodate existing fork widths of 4", 5" and 6" that are up to 2" thick (OSHA states that the length of the fork extensions may not exceed over 150 percent of the length of the existing forks).
Also available are standard Fork Extensions as well as Round and Triangle Fork Extensions and extensions for use with fork lifts with the side shifter feature.
