Send us a digital photograph, and we will be able to indentify the correct locksafe locking bracket to suit that switch. It is easy to fit and once fitted it remains permanently on the machine.

What do Locksafe do?
Locksafe supply a range of products which will allow you to convert existing systems (battery or starter isolation) to make them into a lockable system. If you don’t have any isolation in place Locksafe can recommend and supply you with the hardware required.
What is single pole and double pole isolation?
Single pole is where only one pole of the battery is isolated, i.e.the positive OR the negative is disconnected. Normally the negative is interrupted with single pole isolation. Double pole isolation is where the battery power is interrupted through the positive and negative poles of the battery.
Where do Locksafe get the products?
We design and manufacture our own products. We have a workshop which does all the manufacturing processes, thus ensuring all products are built to our quality standards.
Which bracket comes with a key?
Locksafe manufacture a locking bracket (LS11001) to suit the standard caterpillar master isolation switch (LS14003). The bracket is supplied with a longer key to assist the operation of the switch, once the locking bracket is in place.
Why have battery isolation?
Battery isolation provides a way of being able to remove all power from the machine / vehicle, disabling the battery therefore removes the capacity to power up the machine / vehicle. All power is removed, usually by the negative pole to the chassis.
Why have starter isolation?
Starter isolation provides a way of being able to remove the power from the engine starter motor. Therefore removing the capacity to start the engine but allowing battery power for electrical testing.
