Every year shock and vibration causes millions of dollars of damage during transport and handling of sensitive and valuable equipment. The Pelican SKID-MATE air-dampened cushions provide maximum protection against shock and vibration, taking the place of wood skid runners and permit four-way pallet entry, making loading and unloading easy.

The Pelican SKID-MATE is designed to mount directly to pallet bases with a 5/16" 18 UNC bolt. The SKID-MATE Spacer adds an additional 1 1/8" to the SKID-MATE cushion, increasing the total height to 4 inches, allowing your pallet-loaded freight to accept most pallet jacks.
