Product Review: All Source Glider

Description:

All Source Security Container USA has developed a 2-wheel glider that can be easily attached or detached from shred carts or bins to improve maneuverability. This is a cost-effective retrofit solution in lieu of replacing existing bins with 4-wheel options.All Source Glider

Ergonomic Benefits and Features:

  • Two additional wheels reduce push/pull forces when transporting single or multiple shred carts.
  • Minimizes the need to tilt shred carts, thereby minimizing force exertions to support fully loaded carts.
  • Increased stability and weight bearing capabilities.
  • Lightweight design (13 lb) enables easy attachment and detachment
  • Compatible with various All Source carts (65L, 95L, 120L, 360L)

Potential Limitations:

  • Awkward postures may be required when maneuvering multiple shred carts in tight or restricted spaces.
  • When attaching to fully loaded carts, high forces may be required to pull the cart upwards onto the attachment.
  • Although the attachment is durable in design with minimal components, preventative maintenance is still required for the two locking casters and brakes.

Applications:

  • Service industry
  • Shred carts
  • Trash bins
  • Recycle bins
  • Hospitality
  • Healthcare
