The Power Chock™ System 5 is the top of the line model of the Power Chock™ family of products. This model includes the restraint mechanism, a complete communication system, control and detection systems that allow full integration with other door and dock leveler systems.
The Power Chock™ System 5 combines the ultimate ease of operation and universal compatibility, with the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.
The Power Chock™ System 5 is composed of a large steel chock mounted on the end of an articulated, counterbalanced arm. The chock is placed in front of the vehicle’s rear wheel and locks onto a grade-level ground plate.
The communication system consists of three (3) sensors (arm, wheel and dock), an alarm, and interior and exterior signal lights that provide a clear signal to both dock employees and truck drivers that it is safe to begin loading or unloading operations.
The Power Chock™ vehicle restraint is guaranteed to be exempt from defects in fabrication and components if used properly and as intended, for a period of one (1) year following delivery date, and includes a three (3) year limited warranty on the Power Chock™ assembly.

For our shunt drivers, it takes less than 30 seconds to set or remove the PowerChock. There has been no financial impact or extra cost with the use of the PowerChock systems.
I wanted a restraint that didn’t depend on RIG bars,which are sometimes rusted out or torn off. The PowerChockTM System goes along with what drivers have been taught to do, which is to set a chock when they back intothe dock. This system gives us peace of mind.
We purchased the PowerChockTM System for the safety level it provided. We have installed this equipment in various facilities over the last 12 years. In our opinion, it is the best system on the market.
The Power ChockTM System has proved to be indispensable in our working environment. Our drivers love it because it’s so easy to use. It provides the level of security that we needed at Molson and we are extremely satisfied after having tried several different technologies.
We wanted a system that would work with all types of vehicles. We tested many types of restraints; the simplicity of the Power ChockTM System and its total cost of ownership was what sold it for me.
Since we installed loading dock door barriers, our dock doors have not been struck. As a result our maintenance and repair budget has been significantly reduced.
With the Power Chock System, we purchased value. From a maintenance stand point, there is virtually nothing that can go wrong with these units and they provide the safety we were looking for. The average cost per unit has been less than $50 a year. We have been very pleased with the great support of the GMR team.

An unsecured or poorly secured trailer is always at risk of early departure or trailer creep, which can lead to loading dock accidents. These dangerous conditions can also result in damage to expensive equipment and valuable cargo. Effective truck restraint is key to preventing loading dock accidents and fatalities!
Forklifts can damage your loading dock doors when no safety barrier protects closed doors. And forklifts can fall off loading docks when doors are open. In addition, when the doors are open there is the potential hazard of forklifts falling off the loading dock, which can result in a serious dock accident.
Pedestrian safety is not an issue to be overlooked. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), close to 20 percent of all forklift accidents involve a pedestrian being struck by the forklift, translating to almost 19,000 people per year.
