Original Press Release:

KEYTROLLER, INC. Announces the Release of it's New FORK PROTECTOR.

This simple but effective device simply clamps over the "heel" and "elbow" area of the fork which protects the bottom of the fork from excessive wear. It has a sacrificial steel alloy casting that wears in place of the fork. ANSI standards REQUIRE fork replacement when the heel thickness is reduced only 10% by wear.

Installation is very simple and can be done on any internal combustion or electric forklift. The combination of the side screws tightening and the casting's internal radius prevents slippage of the device. After it wears out one side of the sacrificial alloy, it is simply turned around to wear the other side.

Typically, one pair of FORK PROTECTORS will save replacement of up to 10 pairs of forks. Given this economic justification, they are very affordable for any high usage application.

FORK PROTECTORS are available in 4", 5" and 6" widths and come with (R model) rubber bumper top connector or (M model) low profile metal top connector. They are available in US and Canada through better forklift and equipment dealers.
