Choosing the Right Truck Bed Lock: A Guide to BedLock’s Safety Products for Your Needs

Running a successful dump truck repair shop hinges on prioritizing safety for your technicians. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is by utilizing high-quality BedLock safety products.

However, with a range of options available, this BedLock Safety Products guide can help you find the perfect fit for your specific needs. As a truck safety equipment manufacturer, we’re here to help you choose the ideal dump truck safety equipment from BedLock, keeping your shop running smoothly and your team safe.

Matching Your Needs with the Right Truck Bed Lock

Before you read this BedLock Safety Products guide, assess the types of dump trucks your shop services. Do you primarily work on single-axle or tandem-axle trucks? The weight capacity of the truck bed locks you choose needs to be compatible with the heaviest trucks you encounter.

Additionally, consider the repair tasks your technicians perform most frequently. For basic maintenance, a simple dump bed safety support might suffice. However, for more complex repairs underneath the bed, you may require something customized.

The BedLock Safety Products Guide

Here’s what we have to offer:

BL-450A/B Truck Bed Locks: These versatile truck bed locks are perfect for most single-axle and tandem-axle dump trucks, offering a 50,000 lbs. weight capacity. They come in “A” and “B” top configurations to accommodate different frame styles.

The “A” top, measuring 5-3/4″ wide with sides, is the most popular choice.

The “B” top features a thicker plate with no sides, which is ideal for wider dump box frames.

BLN-450A/B Notched BedLocks: This customized option is designed for trucks with limited frame space due to additional attachments. They feature a shortened base plate with reinforced supports for secure attachment.

BL-600A/B: This popular option fits up to a 6″ truck frame, ideal for wider frame dump trailers and roll-offs used in the refuse and recycling industry.

BL-700B & BL-800B: Designed for strength and robustness, these dump bed safety supports fit frames up to 7″ and 8″, respectively, catering to larger trucks. Both are available with the “B” top only.
