"Original" Fork Rhino Forklift Ball Hitch Attachments

Turn your forklift into the TOUGHEST, most VERSATILE moving

The "Original" Fork Rhino Shackled Configuration is a forklift attachment that provides users the ability to move ball hitch and other trailer equipment with a forklift. Limiting pins prevent the forklift attachment from sliding toward the forklift and a shackle and chain prevent the attachment from sliding off of the fork tips.

The Shackled Rhino

  • Prevents uneven fork sag

  • Rated for 6000 lb tongue weight (with 2" or larger ball)
  • 6" Wide Fork Pockets
Shackle restraint system locks the Shackled Fork Rhino into place. The Rhino restraint system locks the Shackled Fork Rhino into place and prevents the jerking action often experienced with other trailer spotters. The use of a binder will prevent jerking action often experienced with other trailer spotters.
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to Store
  • OSHA Compliant
  • In Stock!

Chain Is Not Included. Why?

Because it is cheaper for you to buy them at almost any hardware store than pay the cost of the chain and shipping costs through us.


Pinned Configuration

The Fork Rhino enables forklifts to handle equipment that requires Standard Ball, Gooseneck or Pintle Hook latch systems. It is a lightweight and economical alternative to the traditionally large, difficult to handle, pick-up and store trailer spotters.

  • Lightweight: Easy to Pick-Up & Move
  • 6" Wide Fork Pockets
  • Easy to Store/Stow Away
  • No Dirty Chains to Mess With
  • OSHA Compliant
  • Includes your choice of ball size: 1 7/8", 2" or 2 5/16"
  • Ball thread size: 1"- 14

Attaching the Fork-Rhino Pinned and Receiver Pinned requires that two (2) 17/32 inch holes be drilled in the forks. The holes allow the holding pins to secure the fork-rhino to the fork truck.

WARNING: The Fork Rhino is Not for Highway or Hi-Speed Use!

"No holes allowed in forks" is a myth.

OSHA does not prohibit drilling holes in forks. 

Customization is always available!
