Provide the extra support needed to lift long or large
objects with a fork truck. All model are designed of
a welded steel construction. Models with
prefix FE-4, FE-5 and FE-6 have
cast steel tips, while models with prefix
FE-7 and FE-8 havea
tapered cut front end. Steel retaining strap (loop style*) prevents fork extensions from
sliding off forks during use. Baked-in powder coat finish for added
regulations require that extensions are no more than 150% of the
existing fork length. (e.g. 48" existing forks, the fork extension
should not exceed 72"). Maximum uniform capacity is 4,000 pounds evenly
distributed per pair.
Standard Loop Style
HOW TO USE / INSTALLATION Standard Loop Style: Insert loop at the tip
of the fork and slide it up at a 45° angle then lay it down over the
Pin Style (suffix P): Remove pin and lay extension over
fork or drive fork truck into the extension. Re-insert the pin behind
the heel of the fork to secure extension.
Rear Spacer (model: FE-RS):
Load pallets into rear of trailer conveniently and easily. Practical
for pushing pallets two or three deep into a trailer. This option is
factory installed and must be ordered with fork extensions.
Ideal for moving around large rolls of material. Available in round or
triangular style. Baked-in powder coated finish for added toughness. To install, insert loop at
the tip of the fork and slide it up at a 45° angle. Then, lay it down
over the fork. OSHA regulations require that extensions do not exceed
the length of the fork by more than 150% (e.g. 48" existing forks, the
fork extension should not exceed 72").
Extensions easily slide on existing forks, and
lock in place.
OSHA Caution OSHA requires that extensions do not exceed
length of Forks by more than 50%.

unintentional disengagement from the forks. Lateral clearance shall not
