How To Care For Clamp Pads

Posted by Sioux Rubber & Urethane Team on Jun 6, 2018 2:42:00 PM

Clamp pads and forklift fork covers are the absolute best tool for tough applications. These pads provide the extra grip and decrease damage when moving material. If you use them in your warehouse, you won’t move anything without them. But when these pads get worn out, caring for them can be a headache. First, they’re expensive to replace and your forklift is left sitting while the part ships. Worse-case scenario is when the new pads don’t fit and you have to send them back and start the process all over again. That’s lost productivity, in time and money, you can’t get back.
