Hitch Guards

  • Hitch Guard
  • Hitch Guard close up
  • Hitch Guard Install

Hitch Guards are engineered to provide a smooth transition of product over the conveyor hitch, preventing small objects from becoming lodged in the hitch, which can cause longitudinal conveyor belt tears, damage to conveyed products, and costly periods of unscheduled downtime. Designed to permit individual segments to release from the support bar, objects are quickly dislodged while remaining segments stay secured for continued operation.
