Solutions for flat deck trailers

Flexibility for hauling round logs and other goods


ExTe Quick Lock (QL) System brings true “drop-in” stake capability to flatbed truck bodies and trailers that need the flexibility to haul round logs of different lengths as well as other goods and where the stakes need to be removed or re-positioned frequently.

The stake is simply dropped into a specially designed socket and ExTe’s spring-loaded self-locking wedge. No bolts or turning of spanners. No loose stakes or vibration as you drive down the road. Aluminium construction allows the C-series stakes to be strong yet lightweight for easy operator handling.

To release – the operator simply steps on the QL wedge tool, and the stake is unlocked, free to lift from the socket. Stakes can be stowed on the vehicle, or removed completely if not needed for extended periods.

Sockets are manufactured in high quality Swedish steel that has been heat treated and is well suited to welding applications without demands for pre-heating. More sockets can be placed along the length of the vehicle to suit varying load lengths.

Conventional mounting with bolt-in locking wedges is also available for applications that do not require frequent removal or re-positioning of the stakes.

ExTe QL System components are available from stock held in Australia and also Auckland New Zealand.
