“Blue Roller” – Boxcar Plug Door Opener

The “Blue Roller” 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 unit is small enough to store anywhere yet durable enough to remove the risk and hardship out of opening even the toughest, most damaged plug doors.

The “Blue Roller” Boxcar Plug Door Opener rotates the plug door handle from a stable platform in a predictable fashion. By handling stored energy from the recoil in the door’s handle in a safe manner, it keeps the operator out of danger from the door. Since the unit has an adjustable shaft length which allows the rotating head to safely reach the boxcar plug door, the operator is not prone to falling between the dock and the railcar when trying to turn the handle.
