SKB Corporation is now shipping its new 6U 20-inch rolling Shock Rack case (model number 3SKB-R06U20W). The new unit features wheels and a sturdy pull handle, as well as updated TSA lock-trigger latches and upgradeable elastomeric shocks.
The rolling Shock Rack provides a rotationally molded tough shell with integrally molded valiance, and it comes standard with eight elastomeric shocks (load range 40 to 150 pounds). The load range can be enhanced by adding an additional shock on each mounting point (load range 300 pounds).
A new feature is the SKB trigger latches with TSA locks, which allow for TSA screeners to exclusively unlock cases for security checks while keeping the contents otherwise locked and secure. Other standard features include a rubberized gasket around the door to seal out dust and water, as well as stacking lugs. All trigger latches and handles are flush-mounted.
The 6U model will be joined by 4U and 8U models in summer 2008. Estimated street price for the 6U is $579.99.
