PushPal Cart Safety Handle

Description

The Fusion Tech PushPal is an innovative cart safety handle designed in response to a costly operator hand injury caused by gripping a smokehouse cart on the side edges.

Engineered with a toggle clamp and two round hand grips, the PushPal easily attaches to the center post of a smokehouse cart to reduce the risk of injury from smashing, pinching, and crushing that can occur when operators place their hands on the side edges of a cart.

The PushPal is simple to use: place the PushPal center draw bar around the center support post of the smokehouse cart at a comfortable height for the operator, and push the toggle clamp down. The PushPal is locked into place, providing the operator with an ergonomically safe handle that keeps their hands clear of possible sources of injury.

Constructed of high grade stainless steel, the PushPal exceeds all AMI Sanitary Design Requirements for use in food processing facilities and is durable enough to withstand the most demanding environments.

  • Handles can be placed at an ergonomically safe height, reducing the rist of musculoskeletal disorders and strains.
