Snorkel to Offer Trigger Guard on New, Existing Lifts

Snorkel trigger guard

HENDERSON, Nev. — Snorkel introduced a trigger guard solution that will be available as standard for all of the manufacturer’s lifts that have an enable switch operated joystick, as well as a retrofitted option for existing electric and rough terrain scissor lifts.

The trigger guard can also be retrofitted to any Snorkel models with an enable switch operated joystick, including some electric boom lifts, towable booms, and mast booms. 

The trigger guard fits directly onto the joystick and provides an additional level of protection over the enable switch to prevent involuntary movement, without affecting normal operation of the controls. 

“We take safety seriously, and the introduction of the trigger guard solution provides operators with an additional level of protection on machines which utilize an enable switch operated joystick, from involuntary movement,” said Matthew Elvin, Snorkel CEO. “As with our Snorkel Guard secondary guarding system for boom lifts, we felt it important to not only offer a solution on new build machines, but also make it available on as many of our legacy machines as possible.”

The retrofit solution is in stock and available to order globally, and Snorkel is offering a special introductory price to all customers through the end of 2018. 

Snorkel has released a product improvement bulletin which details the simple procedure for installing the retrofit trigger guard solution. The bulletin can be accessed here: 

The trigger guard can be ordered via Snorkel Parts Departments globally. Regional contact details can be found at or within the product improvement bulletin.
