Snorkel offers new trigger guard solution as standard on current equipment and for retrofit on legacy machines
Snorkel has developed a trigger guard solution 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 any Snorkel 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."
This product improvement is now included as standard on new build Snorkel lifts with an enable switch operated joystick. The retrofit solution is in stock and available to order globally.
Snorkel has released a product improvement bulletin which details the simple procedure for installing the retrofit trigger guard solution. The bulletin can be accessed here.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
