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.

What is a Wheel Restraint

A wheel restraint is generally a manual chock system, where a tire chock track is mounted flush, like the Serco Universal Truck Mount or above ground like the SMWC Manual Safety Chock wheel restraint.

Add More for Dock Safety

Pair the restraints with a stop and go light like the APS & Go LED Safety Light System to let dock workers know when it's safe to load, and truck drivers know when it's safe to leave.
