BOX LOCKS, MODEL BL7000
INSTALLATION, OPERATION & MAINTENANCE MANUAL
ATTENTION DISTRIBUTOR: DO NOT DISCARD -- PLEASE GIVE THIS MANUAL & DRAWINGS TO THE CUSTOMER AFTER THE LOCKS ARE INSTALLED.
BL7000 BOX LOCKS:
READ AND UNDERSTAND THESE INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY BEFORE BEGINNING THE INSTALLATION. USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS WITH THE DRAWINGS INCLUDED. UNPACK, IDENTIFY AND FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE COMPONENTS OF THE KIT.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS: Pioneers’ Box Locks consist of two (2) striker assemblies BL7003, and two (2) lock assemblies, BL7002 (same for both left and right) along with two (2) ramps, BL7012L (Drivers Side) and BL7012R (Passenger Side). Unlike other locking systems, Pioneers’ BL7000 box locks do not require hydraulic or pneumatic power to operate. The BL7000 box locks function with regard to the location of the striker assembly, in concert with the lock assembly. The lock assembly is mounted to the roll-off hoist frame, while the striker assembly is mounted to the sub-frame of the hoist or the truck chassis. As the hoist frame rises up, it separates the lock assemblies from the striker assemblies. Once separation has occurred, the lock hooks fall away from the roll off container’s long sill. When the hoist is lowered, the spring plates of the striker assembly engage the open hook’s geometry, causing the hook to rotate as the hoist is lowered. Should a hooks rotation be interrupted by a container cross member or some other obstruction, the spring plate will flex outward, allowing the hook to avoid the obstruction while the other hook locks onto the container.
DETERMINING BOX LOCK LOCATION: ANSI Z245.1-1999 section 188.8.131.52 specifies that an integral locking device must be within 3m (10 ft) from the end of the roll off container. You should also consult with your local and state government officials to verify compliance. To determine the proper location of the box locks, put a container onto the truck and then measure from the rear of the container forward 10 feet. Mark this location on the hoist itself. This measurement will give you the front to rear location of the locks to be in compliance with ANSI Standards.Examine the hoist rollers to determine their height in relation to the top of the hoist rails. Based on this survey, position the lock assemblies BL7002 so they are ¼” below the lowest roller. This location will ensure that as the container rolls past the lock assemblies without interference. The kit also contains ramps BL7012L (Drivers Side) and BL7012R (Passenger Side) to help guide any container long sills or wheels up and over the assemblies, preventing damage to the hooks. The ramps are to be located toward the rear of the truck only. Refer to the drawings for additional information. The mounting surfaces of the lock assemblies and the striker assemblies must be on the same plane that is, they must be aligned vertically in both side to side as well as front to rear orientation. If the mounting surface of the hoist frame and sub-frame, or chassis are not aligned with one another when viewed from side to side one or the other must be shimmed, so the lock operates properly. With the hoist lowered the striker assembly top surface must meet the bottom of the lock assembly surface, and be square and parallel. Tack weld or clamp the assemblies in place and load and unload a container while checking for proper operation and clearance. Remember, you may weld onto the hoist rails and sub-frames, but you cannot weld to the chassis. Drill and Bolt only! The kit contains the necessary hardware to accomplish bolting the striker assembly to the chassis. Note: If the fenders are cut to for the locks, be sure to allow enough room for the locks to fully open. The lock assembly has built in stops for both open and closed positions.When determining the lock locations, remember to consider wheel interference issues. When adding the ramps to the rear of the lock assembly, be sure that the retaining pin is also to the rear, so that the pivot pin may be removed in the event that you need to service the Lock Assemblies.
OPERATION: Since the box locks operate without power assistance (i.e. hydraulic or pneumatic), they require no secondary controls. When raising the hoist, check to see that the hooks have fallen open before loading a container. When unloading a container, re-tension the cable and pull the container fully forward, in the event that the container has moved rearward during transit and may bind on the lock. Once the hoist is raised, check to see that the hooks have fallen open. You may now roll off the container.
MAINTENANCE: The box locks should be inspected regularly for damage. The box locks should also be checked to be sure that there are no obstructions that would interfere with the rotation of the hooks. The hook housing should also be pressure washed periodically to eliminate the build up of road grime.
