Heavy Duty Ratchet Wrench, 1/2” Drive
The Included Ratchet Wrenches are specifically manufactured for use with the Rhino II Skate. The ratchet has a directional switch in the head for quick direction reversal.
Gondola Skate Retractable Pull Bar
The Retractable Pull Bar collapses for storage, and extends on demand to pull fixtures during mobilization. Simply hook into the integrated pull ring at the bottom of the Rhino II skate.
Wheel Steering Tool for Casters
When under load, use this tool to properly adjust the direction of the casters for a significantly smoother start. When all casters are trailing the direction they are moving, a SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED amount of force is needed to get a fixture moving
A manual is available specific to each type of fixture to be moved. The Rhino II skates are quite versatile, and are used to move virtually any series of Pallet Racking, Gondolas and other fixtures and equipment. The respective manuals cover specialized equipment and procedures that are required for each type of fixture.

Pallet Rack Mobilization Introduction
Mobilizing PALLET RACKING is one of the functions of the Rhino II Mobility system. In order to install and use this product to move pallet racks, the user must follow a particular set of instructions and use the correct supplied equipment that is included in each Rhino II Kit.
This section of the manual is dedicated to the process and equipment involved and includes a step by step walkthrough of the process from start to finish. The steps and illustration figures in this section all have a “P” prefix, which designates “PALLET RACK” information.
Pallet Rack Mobilization Installation
Site Survey and Equipment Inspection
Site and Fixture Preparation
Installation of Rhino II Yoke Adapters
A. Place Rhino II storage box in a location as close to fixture as possible.
B. If flue < 200mm, remove bottom beam from inside racks, see Fig P-3B.
Fig P-3B Remove Inner Lower Rails if flue space is less than 200mm
C. Counting from the floor, attach the yoke into holes “4”, “5” and “6”.
Fig P-3C Attach the yoke in the “4”, “5” and “6” holes, counting from the floor.
D. Install all yokes by aligning hooks inside yoke with lowest available holes in column, see Fig P-3D.
(Integrated magnets will keep the yokes in place temporarily)
E. Inspect installation to ensure that all yokes are fully engaged, at the same height.
Fig P-3D Align hooks in column holes, magnets will hold yoke in place.
Unpacking and Installation of Rhino II Skates
A. Each Rhino II skate is secured in the storage box on a hanging rail system, see Fig P-4A.
B. Pull each Rhino to the front of the rail, lift Rhino slightly over stop, and pull out see Fig P-4B
C. The Rhino II will stand on its own if the wheels are trailing out the front. Trail the wheels away from the lean direction. Fig P-4C
D. Before rolling skate into position, install ratchet into drive socket. Fig P-4D
(The ratchet can go in either side)
E. Roll a skate to each yoke position, make sure the lift jack is at its lowest position, see Fig P-4E.
Jack should be at “0” position before engaging with yokes.
F. Engage the lift hooks of the skate under the catches of the yoke. Fig P-4F
G. Turn the Drive socket either by hand or with ratchet until hooks fully engage yoke. Fig P-4G
Making Pallet Rack Mobile
A. Before lifting pallet rack columns, trail wheels in the opposite direction of desired move., see Fig P-5A.
B. Set direction of ratchet to crank the drive socket clockwise (viewed from right side), see Fig P-5B.
*IMPORTANT- MINIMAL FORCE IS REQUIRED, IF HARD TO TURN, STOP AND CORRECT*
