How does it work?

Technical background for the rQ Trolley Retention Systems.

The standard Rocateq Trolley Retention system works through an underground locking/unlocking cable. These cables are installed at all entrance/exits of the car park.

The Rocateq Transmitter in the store emits coded RF signals through these cables. The Rocateq caster receives the RF signal once it is close to the cable. The caster lock is activated by the RF signal and locks the trolley.

It’s very difficult to lift the trolley over the cable as the wheel locks up to a height of 120cms. When the customer drags the trolley back over the unlock loop the caster will reset.


RF Receiver

The Rocateq caster is equipped with an RF receiver. Once the RF receiver picks up the signal the locking mechanism will be activated.


The Rocateq caster is equipped with a 3V lithium battery. Lithium batteries will last longer than standard alkaline batteries.



Braking mechanism

The patent braking mechanism ensures the efficient braking of the Rocateq wheel. This mechanism prevents an abrupt stop!


Rocateq wheels feature a durable rubber tread with the same comfort as that of a standard trolley wheel. Combined with the patented brake mechanism this insures 'flat spots' (flat sides on the tread of the wheel) are extremely unusual. The Rocateq wheel is also available as a Travelator Wheel, suitable for use on all standard European Travellators. 

Durable bearings

Rocateq wheels are equipped with durable bearings for high load capacity. This makes the Rocateq system applicable not only to all types of shopping trolleys, but also in construction, furniture transportation and luggage trolleys!

Wheel fitting

Rocateq wheels are available with different fitting options. This ensures the wheel is able to be fitted on the majority of trolleys.

Warning strip

To inform your customers are aware on how far they can go with their trolley, red warning lines are painted on the surface close to the locking loop.

Customers can also be informed by an information sign fitted to the trolley.
