With the simple press of your foot, this bolt-on, field-installable directional lock converts swivel casters to rigid casters for straight-line tracking. With its new foot-operated swivel lock, there is no need to reach down to pull or push a hand-operated plunger when activating or disengaging swivel locks. A toe push disengages the lock and a toe pull releases the locking pin into position. Directional slots can lock the swivel into any of four positions at 90 degree intervals. The unit is designed and fabricated in Cambridge, Ont.
