Anyone know where to buy a safety lockout that fits over the cylinder arm for a loader?

Thought about getting some U channel and cutting it down to fit, but surely there is something already out there the correct size?

My H180 lift arm has an exposed cylinder of about 22" x 1.25" at full lift.

Raising the loader is required to get the side panels and front grille off of the 4066R; standing under the loader wouldn't be fun if a hose broke

I've never seen anything commercially available. Most of what I have seen was home made from angle iron and zip-tied to the cylinder rod.

They are standard on commercial/industrial grade machines, but I've never seen them on consumer grade machines or available in the aftermarket. Even at the big Louisville Farm show I saw all the OEM's just using angle iron and zip ties just like JG mentioned.

Hmmm... might be a new product opportunity. Ken's Loader Locks. Manufacturing should be a snap requiring only a cut-off saw and filing off the four sharp corners. Available in various lengths to match specific loaders. Your choice of green or orange.

How about removing the loader so it isn’t in the way and isn’t a potential hazard to the person trying to access the panels? It would probably improve access and improve your position for any necessary services as well?

I just noticed that the other day too, maybe I don't totally understand it but I'm not giving him $25 to watch his videos, too bad really.
