Powerchock Portable 1

Secures 100% of vehicles

Robust, great restraining force

Low initial cost, low maintenance

Effective in winter

The POWERCHOCK™ PORTABLE is the POWERCHOCK™ family’s economically priced model offering safety at a low price. This wheel-based vehicle restraint system is an ideal safety application for any facility with loading docks and can be used universally with all vehicles.

System components

The POWERCHOCK™ PORTABLE comprises a 14 inch tall hardened steel chock, surface restraining ground plate, wall mounted bas and flexible pole.

Product Highlights

  • Cost effective – The design of the restraint unit has no moving parts, meaning no costly maintenance and no lubrication required.
  • Efficient restraint – Simple physics: the truck’s weight pushes the chock teeth downward into a fixed restraining ground-plate.
  • Universal compatibility – Restraints by the wheel, not by the rig bar.
  • Easy to operate – No training is necessary to set the chock.
  • Build to last – Chock is made of high-strength steel, 4 times harder than conventional steel. Ground plate is hot-dipped galvanized at over 800o F. Chock has double protection: zinc-plated and powder coated.
  • Unique all weather design – The chock is designed to break through ice and snow using the weight of the truck.
  • Virtually eliminates field errors – Factory tested for quality control and minimum installation time.


The POWERCHOCK™ PORTABLE vehicle restraint system 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 chock and ground plate.

Reduce Repair Cost

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.

Simplicity of design

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.

Universal compatibility

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.

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.

Total Cost Ownership

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.

Welcome to GMR Safety

We make it simple to be safe

GMR Safety is your first stop for innovative dock safety products!  GMR Safety develops, manufactures, and markets the POWER CHOCK vehicle restraint device and CLEAR TO GO safety barriers, Door-Saver, and Walking Zone products.

Early departure and trailer creep

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!

Dock door damage and dock drop-offs

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

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.

Industry Solutions

Patented solutions for these dock safety problems:

  1. The POWER CHOCK™ System is a superior wheel lock and vehicle restraint system that handles early departure and trailer creep hazards. Wheel restraints are much more effective for keeping a truck restrained at the dock than the standard rubber trailer chock.
  2. The CLEAR TO GO BARRIER reduces the potential for loading dock door damage and helps prevent dock drop-offs.
  3. The CLEAR TO GO™ Walking Zone is a magnetic based safety barrier, quickly repositioned when hit, safely delimits pedestrian zones and working stations. Its mobility gives users an additional safety feature: no risk of getting stuck between the barrier and a forklift.
  4. The CLEAR TO GO™ Door-Saver is a unique traffic system to control vehicle circulation indoors as well as out. It’s an excellent protection tool for industrial garage doors. The simple design works by rapidly positioning a high visibility stop signal in the driver’s field of view, giving the driver more time to react before the door closes. This sequence greatly reduces the risk of vehicles striking upward-acting doors.
