Wholesale Manual Turnfoot Twist Lock


About product

The fixed base twistlock is an essential component utilized for securing containers to the deck of a vessel. It offers a reliable and sturdy locking mechanism to ensure the stability and safety of the containers during transportation.

This twistlock variant provides the flexibility of left and right locking options, allowing for convenient and customized securing based on specific requirements. However, it is crucial to avoid mixing left and right locking types within the same vessel to prevent confusion regarding the status of the twistlocks (open or locked).
