  • STANDARDS: Specification #EAD21000A applies. Spreader meets or exceeds AISC fatigue life of 600,000 cycles.
  • OPERATION: Simple mechanical operation - no electronics or hydraulics. Twistlocks lock / unlock when wire rope handle is pulled. One handle locks the bayonets, the other handle unlocks the bayonets. Double horn hook wire rope comes standard with frame. If you require a four legged bridle, let us know.
  • Wire rope rigging has a "Flemish Eye" style termination point, which has been found to be most reliable and recommended by FEMA over any other style termination point. Built-in "Flipper Guides” allow the crane operator to easily locate the spreader onto the waiting container. Indicator flags located at each corner of the frame provide a positive visual cue of locked or unlocked spreader. These flags are attached directly to the bayonets.

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.
