MB832 Manual Barrier Arm Bolt Down Cradle
Most aluminum barrier gate arms must be supported when they exceed 18 ft in length. The best way to support a barrier gate arm is the MB832 Bolt-Down Cradle pictured in orange. When a bolt-down cradle is not possible then the next best choice is the MB832 Tip Support”
The MB bolt-down cradle is a heavy duty steel cradle that is vertically adjustable within a 12 inch range using locking bolts. It is used to support 18 ft plus barrier gate arms or shorter arms in situations where arms may be subject excessive weight loads from humans. Another advantage of using a cradle is that the end of the barrier arm can be secured to the cradle saddle making both ends of the arm secure.
