Quick Detach (QD) Forks are designed to be easily and quickly removed from the lift truck’s carriage when required. The key feature is the upper hook which allows the fork to be removed without the need to remove the carriage/fork retaining bar, which would result in down time for the lift truck. This design is usually required for big forks that difficult to handle due to their weight or for handling a different lifting tool for a different application(eg. a Coil Ram). Quick interchangeability is a huge time and financial advantage.
● Quick Detach Forks have an open style hook which could fit over either a round or square carriage bar.
● Depending on the surface the truck is working on (indoor surface or outdoor uneven surface),each fork may require a lower retaining fixture to prevent the fork from unintentionally disengaging.
● Owners and operators must ensure a safe and secured method and area for removing the forks. To prevent any accidents or injury ,refer to ANSI/ITSDF B56.1-2012.
