New R&M Hook Latch Trigger

A Better Way to Lift

Hoosier Crane is pleased to announce R&M's new Hook Latch Trigger (patent pending), an innovative idea that improves efficiency, operator safety and ergonomics. A magnet on the back of the latch attaches to the hook forging and allows the latch to remain open. The operator can then use both hands to insert/ remove hook attachments. This act triggers the latch free from the hook forging and causes the latch to close automatically.
