The new Buffers USA manual IBC design, 6601-6961-L, incorporates an extended side-operated handle for easier locking and unlocking of the top container on a double stack rail car. The 6601-6961-L eliminates the need for workers to navigate the very narrow ledge along the side of the well car to unlock or lock the IBCs. Since most falls from well cars occur when a worker is on this ledge, the 6601-6961-L will greatly reduce this safety concern. Workers can remain on the ground and use a pole to push or pull the extended handle to lock or unlock the IBCs.
