Swivel Lock Types

  • The choice of a swivel lock depends on whether your application puts a premium on compatibility, durability, strength – or a combination of these. For example, the demountable swivel lock is great for any caster application that requires adaptability. For maneuverability benefits, the passive swivel lock is a go-to choice. In heavy-duty applications where swivel lock strength paramount, the passive swivel lock is at the cutting edge.

    We have engineered a wide variety of swivel locks for your application – and can even custom-design to your unique specifications. Or, check out our Custom Configurator that includes all the options you need to design and download a 3D model of your caster.

When side thrust is applied, the swivel unlocks providing maximum maneuverability of the unit. This swivel lock is NOT RECOMMENDED for towed applications.
