SMART CHOCK™ is an innovative trailer restraint system that secures your vehicle while effectively communicating with drivers and loading dock workers to ensure a safe and productive work environment.

SmartChock-

Smart Chock has an over-sized yet lightweight aluminum chock containing an ultra sonic sensor in conjunction with a patented light/communication system. Smart Chock is a versatile restraint system that can accommodate a wide variety of vehicles, and is not dependent on the condition or location of the ICC bar on a trailer.

SAVES TIME & MONEY

Smart Chock requires very little maintenance and is easy to use, unlike mechanical restraint systems that consistently fail and require costly maintenance. Smart Chock helps minimize downtime at the loading dock with a reliable control system and easy to monitor chock assembly. The ultra sonic sensor inside the chock housing is designed for use in all weather conditions, and for any type of truck. Our quick,connect military spec cord is extremely durable, and takes seconds to change if it’s ever damaged. Smart Chock is priced considerably less than typical mechanical restraints and offers a more consistent, reliable performance. Smart Chock eliminates the need for costly service and maintenance contracts.

SAFETY IS A MAJOR CONCERN

Smart Chock offers an innovative safety feature that alerts the dock workers when the chock is prematurely removed. The inside control panel and dock light will flash on and off, alerting dock workers that the trailer is no longer secured. (Versa Light® dock light sold separately). Inside and outside audible alarms are standard features also. Smart Chock provides a safe, seamless communication system that is easy for workers to implement, it does not provide a bypass switch, eliminating the possibility of the system being overridden.
