How does a Ratchet Deck Trailer work?

⇧ Three ratchet deck modules fitted

To reposition a deck, a forklift is positioned so the forks enter via two apertures. Lifting the decks upwards automatically unlocks it, allowing it to be raised to the desired incremental height. If the deck needs to be lowered, the operator takes it to the topmost increment where it automatically unlocks for lowering to the required position. When the forklift is removed, the ratchet mechanism automatically locks. Available as a retro-fit, it is also suitable for rigid and de-mountable bodywork.
