What is it?
A tool to prevent container doors from opening unexpectedly. Heavy cargo in containers can pose a serious risk if it has moved during transit. When opening the doors, you risk being hit by unsecured cargo. The safety catch prevents uncontrolled opening of the doors, allowing them to open only slightly. Once the situation has been proved safe, the doors may be opened completely.
Who is it for?
Workers and customs officers who handle containers or are responsible for opening them.
What is the benefit?
The tool provides a safe and controlled opening of shipping containers, preventing workers from being injured by cargo.
Information on the container safety catch is available.
