Caster Accessories - Caster Swivel Locks

Colson 4-8 Series Swivel Locks

Colson

4-8 Series Swivel Locks

Swivel locks quickly convert swivel casters to rigid casters for straight-line tracking. A spring-loaded, hand operated plunger is engaged to fit into slots on the swivel raceway. To engage the lock, simply pull out plunger and turn until spring action inserts plunger in notches on raceway. To disengage the lock, simply pull out plunger and turn so plunger is not inserted in notches on raceway. Colson offers 3 types of hand operated swivel locks.

  • Capacity up to 6000 lbs each
  • Welded Swivel Locks: These welded swivel locks are factory installed only. They lock in 90° intervals on 4, 5, and 6 Series and 180° intervals on 7 Series. To order see the "Welded Models" chart below.
  • Bolt-On Swivel Locks: The bolt-on swivel locks are field installable only, but require that the fork yoke base have the notches at 90° intervals. Available on 4-6 series casters. To order see the “Bolt-On Models” chart below.
  • Kingpinless Swivel Locks: Kingpinless casters already have the notches in the raceway, so it is possible to field install. They lock in 90° intervals. Simply bolt swivel lock on when you install on equipment. Available on 4, 6, 7 and 8 series casters. To order see the chart below.

Colson Foot Activated Swivel Lock

Colson

Foot Activated Swivel Locks

No more back strain from bending down to activate a swivel lock. When the foot pedal is in the “up” position, a stainless steel spring forces a pin into one of four slots on the swivel fork. This effectively locks the swivel in one of four positions at 90° intervals. To disengage the lock, simply press down on the foot pedal for free swiveling action. It’s that easy! With this innovative product, you can quickly and easily convert swivel casters to rigid casters for straight-line tracking. When you need greater maneuverability, you can quickly convert from the rigid position back to full swivel. Quick. Easy. Less stress and strain. The Colson Ergonomic Advantage™.

  • Capacity up to 1400 lbs each
