Description:

This Container handling equipment has a subtle feature that keeps containers from rolling off the platform prematurely. Two yellow tabs flip up when the platform is raised. the tabs have weights on their lower half. When the platform is down, these weights are pressed up by the body of the vehichle below the platform. They are there when needed, gone when not needed.
