A swivel lock is a mechanical feature added to swivel casters to restrict their rotation, converting the swivel caster into a rigid one temporarily. This locking mechanism enables enhanced control and stability for the caster-equipped unit, making it especially useful in environments where precise positioning or straight-line movement is required. By engaging the swivel lock, users can prevent the caster from pivoting, thus ensuring that the equipment or cart maintains a fixed direction during movement.

Swivel locks can be manually operated, often through a simple foot-activated lever or a hand-operated mechanism, allowing the user to easily switch between swiveling and non-swiveling modes as the situation demands. This functionality is invaluable in scenarios such as on an incline, where the equipment needs to stay in place, or when the load being transported must not shift due to caster rotation.

Overall, a swivel lock enhances the versatility and safety of caster-equipped machinery, trolleys, or carts by providing an option to secure the wheels in a fixed direction whenever necessary.
