Automatic Safety Hook

Automatically locks onto load when lifted and disconnects when load is removed.

The risk for injury is dramatically reduced.

No climbing or helpers injured or squeezed by the load in the dangerous loading or drop zone.

Enables load connection as a one-man operation without being ad


The LKVE is a force transmitter which is attached to a stationary rope part. The LKVE gives a 4-20mA output signal. It has high repeatability, is made for use in aggressive industrial environments and fully conforms to IP 67.

LKV Overload Guard

The LKV Crane Overload Guard is designed for easy installation without disturbing the crane, particularly on overhead traveling cranes and container handling equipment where operators may not know when they have an overload condition. Operates a single limit switch.

Load Pins

If it is not possible to use an LKVE or LKV, a load pin is a great alternative. Bespokely manufactured to fit in your compensating sheave. No reduction in head room with this device.
