Snorkel has developed a trigger guard that will be fitted as standard to all new Snorkel lifts that have an enable switch operated joystick.

The new trigger guard is also available as a retrofit solution for legacy Snorkel electric and rough terrain scissor lifts, as well as models with an enable switch operated joystick, including some electric boom lifts, towable booms and mast booms.

The trigger guard fits directly onto the joystick and provides an additional level of protection over the enable switch to prevent involuntary movement, without affecting normal operation of the controls.

Matthew Elvin, Snorkel CEO, said, “We take safety seriously, and the introduction of the trigger guard solution provides operators with an additional level of protection on machines which utilize an enable switch operated joystick, from involuntary movement.”

“As with our Snorkel Guard secondary guarding system for boom lifts, we felt it important to not only offer a solution on new build machines, but also make it available on as many of our legacy machines as possible.”

The retrofit solution is in stock and available to order globally, and Snorkel is offering a special introductory price to all customers through the end of 2018.

Snorkel has released a product improvement bulletin which details the simple procedure for installing the retrofit trigger guard solution.
