Drive-In "Wheel Lock" Holds Mowers, ATV's On Trailers
"It eliminates the need for straps, ties, or chains. Just drive the mower in and it automatically locks into place," says Brian Clarke, ProEquipment, Jensen Beach, Fla.
The spring-loaded "ProLocker" locks onto a single tire. To use it you simply drive the mower into the device until a metal guard automatically snaps into place. The guard is locked in position by a single pin. Once at the job site, the operator simply pulls the pin back, gives it a quarter turn, and then starts the machine and backs it off the truck or trailer.
The unit can be removed from the truck or trailer by pulling a pin from a metal bracket that bolts to the deck. The bracket remains flat against the bottom of the deck, in place for a simple one-pin re-installation.
Three different models are available to fit tires ranging from 7 to 10 1/2 in. high; from 12 1/2 to 16 in. high; and 21 to 26 in. high. The 21 to 26-in. model can accommodate ATV's. Prices start at $149.99 plus S&H. The company says models for skid steer loaders and golf carts will soon be available.
