The TR-7 is the same type of guard as the TR-2, with a longer adjustable arm stroke. Great for drill presses with long spindles. The rod is extended by about 7.5” compared to the model TR-2. The screen is made out of impact resistant polycarbonate (Lexan™) material. Polycarbonate is well known for its high impact strength. Most importantly, this safety guard includes a built-in electrical safety interlock switch which is tamper resistant. The safety interlock switch ensures that the safety guard is in place before the machine can be operated.
This guard will help prevent ejections from accidentally leaving chuck keys inside the drill chucks. Customers can also buy self-ejecting chuck keys for added safety. Click here to see our chuck key selection.

Why Have Safety Interlocking?
An electrical safety interlock prevents the machine from operating when the shield is opened. This safety guard features an electric switch that disables the machine’s motor. The switch is made in such a way as to prevents easy bypass of the interlock switch.
When we do on-site visits, we often see safety shields moved to the side and never put back on the machine. An interlock is a simple solution to prevention of safety guard misuse or removal.
