Pallet Jack Guard Installation

The “FootGuardian® device” is the least expensive insurance policy you may ever get. It’s simple and affordable prevention of a common accident. The chances are that you may own five pallet safety guards for less than a deductible for a potential injury. Don’t put your operators at risk. Contact us at FootGuardian® /Tikiguard, LLC.

Why a pallet jack safety guard? Some people may think, “There is no demand for it.” However, at one point, airbags were not in demand before being commonly deployed. Very often, the invention precedes the demand. Still, in this case, the demand is out there, as the stories from the frontlines of warehouses, retail stores, and manufacturing facilities tell us. It is not necessary to wait for a foot injury.

Protect Your Feet

Manual pallet jacks carry as much as 5,000 lbs. Most have their back wheels exposed, and if you don't watch your feet' position or are unable to stop a heavy load, your feet become the target. By encasing the wheels of the manual pallet jack, the "FootGuardian® device" reduces the exposure associated with foot rollover injuries or debris. The guard attaches in less than four minutes. When you need a new pallet jack, just take the old guard off and attach it to the new one.

Is the FootGuardian® device compatible with your standard manual pallet jack?

The FootGuardian® is designed to fit the vast majority of standard manual pallet jacks that are in use today. The SFG-001 FootGuardian® is not a universal guard. We made the FootGuardian® reusable and transferable for most manual pallet jacks so that you can save money while adding an extra layer of protection for your employees!

As an estimate, the SFG-001 standard FootGuardian® device fits in the area between the wheels that is greater than 2 3/4 inches. The post can be no bigger than 2.25 inches in diameter. The distance from the outside to the outside wheel must be less than 8 1/2 inches.
