FORK COVERS and LOAD PROTECTION
Made from very heavy nylon or polypropylene cargo webbing , they are long-wearing and tough enough for any job. As an additional feature black neoprene or white rubber can be sewn on the top surface of the blade. This option provides additional friction for slippery load surfaces. These Fork Covers can be made to order for any fork size, any back height and any blade configuration.

Poly Coated Forks
Similar to Poly Coated Sleeves, but only coated on the top surface.
Thicknesses can be varied as needed. Use these tough sleeves to protect stainless steel, tubing, wire coils, sheet metal, fiberglass, painted surfaces, etc. Anything that can be scratched can be protected by our Poly Coated Fork Sleeves.
The Face-Mask product is a poly coated steel plate embedded with several powerful neodymium magnets. There are side tabs and sometimes a top tab to assist in holding the Face-Mask in position in case of side forces like sideshifting are seen. These are very powerful magnets, so the Face-Mask is installed with the aid of jack bolts that will keep the steel plate from injuring the installer’s fingers.
Rubber Tipped Forks
These fork sleeves are made with a replaceable rubber bumper at the tip. They are used in work where the fork may extend beyond the load, causing damage to adjacent loads. A steel strap keeps the sleeve from raising upward and a pin locks it behind the heel of the fork.
Rubber tipped bumper forks are built to match the original fork dimensions.
Poly Tipped Forks
These are blunt tipped sleeves that are made to fit the fork without extending the length. A pad of poly bonded to steel backing is bolted to the blunt tip. Used for prevention of load penetration and damage to loads behind the load to be lifted. The forks may be piercing plastic totes, corrugated cartons or products in “bright stack”, goods in process because the forks are longer than the load being handled.
