“Demon Stick” – Manual Hopper Gate Opener

The “Demon Stick” is a manual, low-cost opener ideal for lower volume operations or as a backup unit.

“Demon Stick” allows the operator to get out from under the railcar, while putting the operator in a better position to open difficult gates.

The reversible ratchet drive allows for easy direction change. Manual height adjustment and a pivoting mount allow the Demon Stick to reach the vast majority of capstan levels. The unit is mounted to a 2-wheel cart and ships with a drive bit and a 3-foot extension bar.

Only a single person operator is required as this portable opener includes a durable handle and a stable base that provides operators with more solid footing.

Although this model is a manual hopper gate opener, it still acts to prevent operator injuries, the number one priority of every product in the line of Door Demon® line of railcar openers.
