The Equipment Lock Co. Universal Anti-theft and Safety DevicesUniversal anti-theft and safety devices manufactured by The Equipment Lock Co. (TELC) secure the equipment's drive controls, rendering the machine useless even if the key is available. Depending on the characteristics of the equipment, the approach differs. For instance, the TELC Skidsteer Lock immobilizes both drive control levers, the E-Series Skidsteer Lock immobilizes one drive lever, the Excavator Lock immobilizes the drive levers in opposite directions, and the Backhoe Lock (shown) immobilizes the steering wheel and drive control. TELC products are designed to be used in conjunction with OSHA lockout/tagout procedures.
