Invicta Fork Extension Sleeves
Maximise your truck’s efficiency with fork extensions
Forklift extensions make light work of lifting awkward or oversized loads. Quick and simple to use, they slide over the truck’s existing forks to temporarily extend the length of the parent fork.
For busy operatives dealing with multiple-sized loads every day or the occasional oversized load, forklift truck extensions can save you time and hassle.
Invicta’s fork extension sleeves are manufactured from 6mm steel and come in multiple sizes to fit most trucks. We sell sleeves up to 150mm wide and 2499mm long.
How do forklift extensions work?
Fork extension sleeves slide over your truck’s existing forks, temporarily increasing their length for the safe handling of oversized and awkward loads without changing the existing ones.
Invicta’s fork extensions are quick and easy to fit, secured in place using zinc-plated fork heel pins to stop them from sliding off. You might also see some that use a steel retaining loop.
Refer to your truck’s manual before you attach your fork extension sleeves. If you exceed your truck’s capacity, you risk the truck toppling over or the forks failing when fully loaded.
Picking the right size extension forks for your truck
When it comes to picking the right size extension sleeves for your forklift truck, there are some essential rules you must follow.
The length of the extenders must not exceed 66% of the size of the parent forks.
For example, if your existing forks are 1000mm, the final length of the forks with extenders should be a maximum of 16600mm.
Your fork extension sleeves should sit snuggly over the existing forks so as not to increase the width of each fork by more than half an inch.

Why use fork extensions?
With forklift extensions, your truck becomes a multi-functional tool capable of doing more and saving you valuable time.
Fork extenders are not intended to be used all day, every day. They’re designed for one-off loads. Quick and easy to use, they slide on and off, saving you time and hassle changing the forks on your truck.
