Basketball Backstop Safety Straps and Winches

Made in the USA, Engineered to last.

LynRus manufactures gymnasium equipment that works well day-in and day-out, and basketball backstop safety equipment that works when others don’t. These are the two foundations of every product we engineer. The result is a complete line of proven gymnasium products that exceed industry standards, including a market-tested basketball backstop safety strap that’s been the choice of leading standard manufacturers for over 20 years.


Aut-O-Loc 2 Basketball Backstop Safety Strap

THE Industry Standard Basketball Backstop Safety Strap.

Our basketball backstop safety strap, the Aut-O-loc 2, has been the industry standard in basketball backstop safety for over 20 years. With models capable of catching loads up to 2,500 lbs, the Aut-O-Loc 2 backstop safety strap provides ample safety, fail-safe operation, and extra peace of mind. Designed and built in the USA, the Aut-O-Loc 2 consistently outperforms and outlasts the competition in gymnasiums across the country.

Each Aut-O-Loc 2 is housed in a robust, heat treated cast aluminum housing that not only looks great, but provides ultimate structural integrity when catching even the heaviest of loads. Sensing both speed and acceleration, the fail safe multi-pawl design actuates automatically and precisely when needed.

Sporting events are a cornerstone in American culture where lifelong skills, relationships, and memories are experienced and cultivated. With the Aut-O-Loc 2 installed in your gym, you can be confident that you’ve made the best possible choice in protecting spectators, athletes, and equipment from dangerous and costly mechanical failures.

Ask your organization if you have the Aut-O-Loc 2 installed at your gym.
