“Gate Slams Down” is a common opening for many race announcers. Why? Because the gate. SLAMS. down. The force of most gates hitting the ground is enough to jar the fillings from the molars of anyone standing in a 10-foot radius–just imagine what it’s doing to the welds and anchorages of your gate system. Some cut-in-half garden hose is not the “pro” way to absorb that shock. A full set of Pro Gate ShockStoppers takes baby-soft care of your gate-drops. Your announcer will be stoked to find a new filler phrase to start the rack attacks.
Pictured on the left is the “C8” model, which is used for our Crescent-8 gate system.
Pictured on the right is the “S8” model, which is used on Straight-8 systems.
A minimum of four ShockStoppers are necessary for an 8-man gate.
