About LOTO Pro™

Switchgear Safety LLC’s new patent pending line of LOTO PRO™ temporary magnetic Lock-out/Tag-out (LOTO) products allow maintenance technicians to render control devices found on potentially dangerous equipment inoperable prior to work being performed. Lock-out/Tag-out (LOTO) is a safety practice used in industrial settings to ensure that potentially dangerous equipment is properly shut off, isolated, or rendered inoperable prior to maintenance or other work, and is mandated by law in many jurisdictions.

LOTO Pro™ lock-out/tag-out solutions utilize heavy duty, switchable magnets to temporarily attach the LOTO device to the gear with absolutely no modifications to the equipment or enclosure required. When locked out, the switchable magnet’s handle is inoperable, thus preventing removal of the device and operation of the intended switch, push button, valve, or other equipment. Switchgear Safety offers LOTO Pro™ devices for all types and styles of equipment (Both electrical and non-electrical) and can also design and configure the products for any custom or specialized applications where standard hard-mounted LOTO devices aren’t available or practical.
