Coxreels three-way pin lock
The three-way pin lock from Coxreels locks reels for transport in heavy-duty applications. It can be installed on either side of the reel and, with the use of the universal bracket, can be installed in 0-, 30-, 60- or 90-degree rotation in respect to the base-mount surface of the reel. The lock safely secures the reel and eases the activation of the rewind while ensuring the two actions are mutually exclusive. The pin lock engages into a separate ring or the chain sprocket rather than into the side of the drum-side disc for extra strength and reliable activation. 800/269-7335; www.coxreels.com.
