Hunter’s new PowerSlide slip plate locking mechanism secures the rear wheel slip plates with the touch of a button. With PowerSlide slip plates, technicians no longer have to make extra trips around the vehicle or struggle to remove and replace lock pins during alignment procedures.

Plus PowerSlide slip plates automatically lock when the rack is lowered to the ground, preventing technicians from driving off the rack with the slip plates unsecured – a leading cause of rack damage.

PowerSlide slip plate controls are conveniently located on the lift console. The touch of a button locks or unlocks the slip plates, and LED lights indicate the current status as “LOCKED” or “FREE.”

PowerSlide slip plates are available on newly purchased, select Hunter RX Scissor Racks.
