"CS1 Spotter" 5th Wheel King Pin Trailer Camera

“CS1 Spotter” Yard Trailer Switcher
Operator Safety Camera

Yard truck trailer swapping applications require competent safety training on the specific models and types of equipment
 operated, as well as the focused attention by the Yard Mule trailer swapper operator to safely lock and secure the 5th wheel locking jaws for trailer King Pin and make certain the 5th wheel locking jaws are engaged and securely lock the swapped trailer, King Pin, in position.

Trailer switcher aka Yard Mule truck operators are often pressed for time, and when rushed, mistakes are common such as; High-Hook, jaws not locked, King Pins not engaged, or Kingpins not securely locked prior to moving the tractor, causing a trailer rollover or trailer hitting the ground damaging the trailer, due to unsecured trailer King Pin or locking jaws not fully engaged.

Tug tests by Yard Mule Switcher truck operators can fail to identify several problems such as King Pins not securely locked, faulty 5th wheel jaw lock sensor, visual inspection under low light or adverse conditions can be rushed, and Switcher Operator error can result in costly damage to the trailer and the contents thereof.
