DETAILS of the AUTOLOC®
Autoloc® Spreaders have 4 twistlock bayonets which are simultaneously actuated by the slackening of the 4 legged sling from a fully tensioned position. The bayonets twist approximately 90 degrees each time the 4 legged sling assembly is fully slackened and alternates between lock and unlock.
The small diameter cable links the Autoloc® arm located near the center of the spreader to the master link. (This cable does not carry any of the lift load) The Autoloc® system linkage operates the bayonets each time the sling is slackened.
