KEEPING IT ON THE LEVEL

The EyeLevel safety device helps determine if a lift truck fork is level before it enters a pallet. The device is mounted on either the mast or the carriage of the truck. The construction is based on a pivot motion, with aligning pins to indicate when the fork is level. The pins work with gravity to assure a correct reading. The EyeLevel is available in four sizes (eight, 10, 12 and 14 in.). Servolift, usa.eyelevels.com, 973-586-3708. Write 218
