What is the difference between a vehicle restraint, and wheel restraint?
Vehicle and Wheel Restraints are both devices designed to prevent a trailer from moving away from the dock. What's the difference, and why should you care?
A vehicle restraint secures the trailer by bracing/capturing the icc bar (lower guard of the trailer itself). A wheel restraint secures the vehicle by limiting the movement of the trailer wheels.
What is a Vehicle Restraint?
A vehicle (or truck, or trailer) restraint can be a mounted hook, such as the APS 2000 Vehicle Restraint System or the SLP3000 Safety-Loc Restraint that mounts to the dock and attaches to the underride guard on the back of the truck trailer.
