Thank You for choosing a Flexi Equine Tack Locker (FET Lockers)

We pack our lockers carefully to ensure they arrive in pristine condition. Please take time to review the following prior to using your locker to ensure safe handling and the longevity of your investment.

Safely Moving Your Locker!

IF THE TACK LOCKER HAS A BLANKET BOX ON TOP NEVER MOVE THE LOCKER WITHOUT FIRST REMOVING THE BLANKET BOX. TO DO SO MAY CAUSE INJURY TO YOU OR OTHERS AND THE RISK OF THE UNIT FALLING ON ITS SIDE IS LIKELY TO CAUSE EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO YOUR LOCKER.

THIS IS PARTICULARLY THE CASE WHEN LOADING OR UNLOADING A VEHICLE BY RAMP.

The Blanket Box bracket system provided by FET Lockers is designed rated and supplied to prevent slippage of the blanket box when loading or unloading it while the tack locker is STATIONERY. The Locker was not designed to move with the Blanket Box attached as it becomes TOP HEAVY. We always recommend that two persons control the movement of the Champion & Show Locker Models as they are challenging to manage when loaded by one operator.

We want you to enjoy many years of use from your FET Locker and a degree of careful handling will ensure safe and beneficial use. FET Lockers, our agents or representatives CANNOT be held liable for incorrect use of the equipment or for the failure of users to follow the prescribed OPERATING PROCEDURES.

Operating Instructions

Operation of Wheels Brakes: whilst the Locker is Stationery always apply the footbrake to prevent movement and the risk of damage to the unit & other property.

Undercarriage Boot Drawers: Always remove these prior to moving the Locker up or down a ramp to prevent the Locker getting caught on the Apex.

Operation of Door Legs: Door Support Legs are included with your tack locker to maintain stability when saddle pegs and drawers are being extended. Ensure the support legs are extended prior to using the doors as temporary saddle holders failure to do so may damage the door hinges.

Drawers: Drawers should be closed & locked prior to transport to ensure items are kept safe within the locker.

Saddle Pegs: Ensure pegs are locked prior to transport. Maximum weight per peg 110 LBS or 50 KG.

Bridle Rack: Ensure unit is locked in place prior to transport.

Operation of Battery/Charger: The battery pack can be removed and charged at a remote location or by the use of the in-built charging point on the control panel

Operation of Safe: (As of August 2014) your safe uses 4 X “AA” Batteries. These are installed prior to shipping and the safe code is set at “0000E” Once you take possession of your locker we advise changing the code to one of your choosing. Your safe comes complete with two keys, we recommend that one of these travel with you and the locker in the event of battery failure, please keep the back-up key in a secure place. Replacement keys are available at a $30 charge plus P&P. For further information see the accompanying safe manual.

Keys: (As of September 2014) Your Locker is supplied with two keys that operate all door locks. Replacement keys are available at a $20 charge plus P&P. We recommend getting copies cut locally as a back-up measure. PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE SAFE NUMBER AND ALL KEY NUMBERS AND KEEP ON FILE, THESE WILL BE NEEDED SHOULD REPLACEMENTS BE REQUIRED

Vents: Please keep vents clear of obstruction at all times to ensure maximum ventilation.

Cleaning: Lockers with Magnetic graphics can be power washed at the lowest setting, remove magnets prior to cleaning. We do not recommend the use of power washers for lockers with vinyl decals as these can be damaged during cleaning, instead use a damp cloth and non-abrasive detergent.

Graphics/Magnets: Use soft damp cloth using a gentle cleaning action moving from edges when cleaning on or around graphics, taking care not to lift corners. Despite best efforts, Vinyl graphics cannot be guaranteed due to factors beyond our control, and may peel. To clean magnets use a soft damp cloth with non-abrasive detergent and store in a flat position.

Fuses: Should you experience electronics failure, first check the battery is fully charged, secondly check fuses and replace if blown. The safe has a separate power source.
