Lock Out The Trailer
Apply the Salvo gladhand onto the trailer’s emergency brake coupling. The glandhand’s trapped key can only be released once this condition is met. This will ensure that the brakes are locked and the air pressure cannot be re-applied.
Insert the key into the Salvo control panel or door lock. The door can now be opened. During loading/unloading the key will be trapped in the control panel or door lock and can only be removed once loading/unloading is complete and the dock door is locked closed.
Safely Perform Loading Operations
When loading/unloading is completed and the key has been released from the control panel or door lock, insert the key into the Salvo gladhand. The gladhand can now be removed and the driver can depart safely.
