The Door Demon
Blue Rolling Boxcar Plug Door Opener is a stand-alone unit designed to meet your needs where a forklift mounted unit does not fit. This design features safety, mobility, and adjustability in a compact and stable platform. This Door Demon
is small enough to store anywhere yet durable enough to remove the violence and hardship out of opening even the toughest, most damaged plug doors.
The Door Demon
Blue Rolling Boxcar Plug Door Opener opens plug doors from a stable platform in a predictable fashion that is non-violent (handles stored energy from the recoil in the door's handle in a safe manner) to any worker thereby keeping the operator out of danger of door. Also, since the unit sits away from the boxcar plug door, the operator is not prone to falling (in dock environments).
