Sensor wheel

The JOST JSK37UBK Sensor Wheel allows the driver to know when the fifth wheel is properly and safely coupled from inside the cab by sending a signal to a display in the cab that illustrates when the wheel is properly coupled.

  • Visual lock indicator for proper locking.
  • Automatic secondary lock to ensure security.
  • Cushion ring in throat reduces wear on the kingpin and absorbs impact.
  • Full size release handle for easy manual release.

Loc-Light sENSOR

The dual-sensor system on the JOST JSK37UBE is connected to the Go/No-Go indicator light located next to the handle. A proper coupling with the handle and kingpin in the locked position will be lit up as green or “Go light”. If the system does not detect the handle and/or kingpin in the proper locked position, the light will flash red or “No-Go light”

  • Green/Red/White Indicator Light with audible alert.

  • Throat illumination light for superior lock bar visibility (Sold Separately).
