Aldon 4020-13 Easy-Slide Door Opener
For dockless rail siding where access to the car door is through a doorway.
Easy-Slide satisfies OSHA's "de minimus" exception to the ban against using forklift blades directly to open box car doors. Welded steel frame fits over paired fork blades up to 5 in. wide (wider blades may be accommodated with custom fitting but may incur an additional charge). Steel pivot arm can stretch 60 in. beyond frame to reach car door. Pincer hook on pivot arm engages car door pull-tab. Easy-Slide opens sliding doors and plug doors.
