Low Maintenance Design Effective Communication
A stationary mount design means less maintenance
which can limit potential damage throughout the life of
the PowerStop. The PowerStop is quickly and easily
stored by pushing down on the restraint arm assembly
with the operating bar
The inside control panel and exterior compact
light package incorporate instinctive red and green
signals which work in opposing modes. A green light
outside guides a backing truck into the dock position
while a red light inside warns the dock attendant that
loading/unloading conditions are not safe. Once the
PowerStop has secured the vehicle, the lights will
switch to green inside and red outside, informing
the truck driver to not move and indicating a safe
condition for the dock attendant.


Specification
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: PowerStop-MAL - PowerStop-MAL with Automatic
All Manual PowerStop (PowerStop-M) vehicle restraints Dock Alert Communication System. Adding the
automatic Dock Alert communication system to the
PowerStop-M establishes a clear line of communication
between truck drivers and dock personnel. During
normal operation the control panel switch is in the “On”
position. When the restraint arm is in the stored position,
the exterior light will flash green indicating the truck is
clear to approach or depart the dock while the interior
light flashed red warning the dock attendant conditions
are not safe for loading/unloading. Once the restraint has
been activated, and the dock attendant confirms the
restraint arm has engaged the RIG, the Dock Alert will
automatically change light signal conditions. Now the
exterior light flashed red warning the driver not to pull
away, while the interior light flashes green indicating safe
conditions and to proceed with the loading/unloading.
In the “By-Pass” position, the system will override the
automatic feature providing a flashing red light on the
exterior and a flashing green on the interior.
are designed to secure a cargo trailer’s Rear Impact
Guard (RIG) to reduce the likelihood of premature
trailer separation during the loading/unloading process.
The exclusive PowerStop vehicle restraint features a
complete mechanical restraint mechanism, activation
rod and storage bracket, along with communication
signage. An optional Dock Alert Communication
System, including inside control panel and exterior
communication lights, is also available.
CONSTRUCTION:
The PowerStop-M restraint system is designed to be a
stationary mount, non-impact device, permanently
mounted to loading dock foundation or drive approach.
Restraint shall be preserved in a non-corrosive powder-
coated finish with plated hardware. Restraint arm shall
be protected by a bellows style cover to eliminate the
accumulation of debris. Once activated, the PowerStop-
M extends upward to the RIG. The uniquely designed
dual locking restraint arm minimizes “trailer creep”,
securing the trailer with over 30,000 lb. (average) of
pull-out force. The PowerStop-M is affordable and
easy to install. It is ideal for all manufacturing,
warehouse and distribution applications.
EXTERIOR LIGHTS:
Standard on PowerStop-MML and PowerStop-MAL
restraint packages, low profile, traffic style, incandescent
red and green lights for communication between truck
driver and dock personnel. A set of caution signs warns
truck driver to “Back In or Pull Out On Green Light
Only”.
OPERATION:
PowerStop-M - Restraint Only. Once trailer is parked
tight against dock bumpers, the dock attendant inserts
one end of the operating bar under the release lever on
the right hand side of the restraint and lifts up, activating
the restraint. The spring loaded float assembly allows
the restraint arm to move up and down with the RIG
during the loading process. Dock attendant should visu-
ally inspect and confirm that the restraint has traveled
vertically and has engaged the horizontal member of
the RIG. The operating bar can then be returned to its
storage bracket. Dock leveler may be activated and
loading/unloading may begin. When loading/unloading
is complete and the dock leveler is returned to its stored
position, the operating bar is inserted into the top of the
slide track on the restraint. The restraint arm is pushed
down until the release lever locks the restraint arm.
Operating bar is returned to its storage bracket.
ELECTRICAL:
The PowerStop-M, PowerStop-MML, PowerStop-
MAL vehicle restraint are available as a stand alone
unit or combined electrically with your dock leveler
selection. Electrical requirements for PowerStop-
MML and PowerStop-MAL are 115v single phase
installed in a NEMA 12 enclosure. All electrical
control panel components, connections and wiring
are UL listed/ recognized. Please Note: Unless speci-
fically noted on quotation, all electrical requirements,
including mounting of control box, outside lights and

bracket, and when including Dock Alert Communication
System, control panel, exterior lights and signs, in strict.
PowerStop-MML - PowerStop-M with Manual Dock
Alert™ Communication System Adding a manual Dock
Alert communication system to the PowerStop-M
establishes a clear line of communication between truck
drivers and dock personnel. At the beginning and end
of a loading cycle, the dock attendant positions the
selector switch on the interior control panel to the “Do
Not Service Trailer” position. A flashing red light on the
interior panel warns the dock attendant conditions are
not safe for loading/unloading, while a flashing green
light on the exterior wall indicates the truck is cleared
to approach or depart the dock. Once the restraint
has been activated and the dock attendant confirms the
restraint arm has engaged the RIG, the selector switch
should be placed in the “Service Trailer” position. In this
position the exterior light will flash red warning the driver
not to pull away, while the interior light will be flashing
green indicating safe conditions and to proceed with the
loading/unloading.
