"CS1 Spotter" 5th Wheel King Pin Trailer Camera


“CS1 Spotter” Yard Trailer Switcher Operator Safety System

Yard truck trailer swapping applications require competent safety training on the specific models and types of equipment
 operated, as well as the focused attention by the trailer swapper operator to safely lock and secure the 5th wheel locking jaws for  trailer King Pin and make certain the 5th wheel locking jaws are engaged and securely lock the swapped trailer King Pin in position.

Trailer switcher truck operators are often pressed for time and when rushed mistakes are common such as; High-Hook, jaws not locked, King Pins not engaged or Kingpins not securely locked prior to moving the tractor causing a trailer rollover or trailer hitting the ground damaging the trailer, due to unsecured trailer King Pin or locking jaws not fully engaged.

Tug tests by Switcher truck operators can fail to identify several problems such as King Pins not securely locked, faulty 5th wheel jaw lock sensor, visual inspection under low light or adverse conditions can be rushed and Switcher Operator error can result in costly damage to the trailer and the contents thereof.

The operation of moving one tractor trailer from one vehicle to another in the trailer storage yard can be called any of the below:

Yard truck trailer swapping
Yard truck trailer switcher
Fleet driver trailer swapper
Fleet driver trailer switcher
Trailer switcher operations
Trailer swapping operations


Regardless of the name used to describe the operation of moving one tractor trailer to another vehicle, the switcher operator must have a good understanding of the basic equipment used in the operation, including:

5th wheel locking trailer
5th wheel locking jaws
Switcher truck with 5th wheel King Pins
King Pin locking jaws


Lack of proper training in the mechanics of the process as well as human nature and the downsides thereof, such as; oversight, lack of concentration, failure to physically check and verify the condition of the trailer, the King Pin and locking jaws can contribute to hazardous conditions resulting in employee injury or accidents damaging company property when the 5th Wheel lockup experiences catastrophic failure.

This is where a driver live view video can provide real time visual confirmation the 5th Wheel King Pin locking jaws are either fully engaged in the proper manor, or they are not, when an accident can be prevented, before it happens.
Real Time Yard Trailer Switcher Driver verification of:
King Pin properly seated in 5th Wheel
5th Wheel King Pin engagement
5th Wheel locking jaws engaged and secure


In addition to the benefits of real time driver verification of the 5th Wheel King Pin status on yard switcher operations is the sequential documentation of the process in high resolution on a 100% Solid State digital recorder for review later if needed in any accident investigation or to be used as a future training tool for new yard trailer switcher operators.
