The Landing Gear Leg Lock prevents the hand crank on a trailer from raising the landing gear.

Keytroller’s Genie Card wireless automatic card-ignition enabler helps prevent equipment theft by means of ignition hot wiring. With a Keytroller wireless device installed within the ignition, the ignition is enabled only when a Genie Card-holding operator is in close proximity.

Doosan Infracore Portable Power’s Blackhawk MVS-6 Mobile Video Surveillance allows remote monitoring of jobsites or other outdoor areas at substantially lower cost than security manpower.

TrakitGPS’s TrakitALL Asset Locating and Logistics module is a remote wireless satellite transmitter with integrated GPS chipset, motion sensor and sensor inputs that is powered by off-the-shelf AA batteries, with expected battery life of four years. Transmitters can be installed in just a few minutes, and are easily relocated to other assets.
