ANSI/OSHA-compliant Pump Coupling Guards by Guard-Safe Guarding

Anyone who has ever worked around couplings knows that they can be extremely dangerous. After all, they rotate at very high speeds and can easily snag a bit of clothing or even a body part. However, couplings can't simply be hidden away, because workers need regular access to them in order to adjust the packing gland as needed. That's why Guard-Safe Guarding makes coupling guards that are designed to be easily accessible while still keeping workers safe.

​​Available in Mild, Galvanized, and Stainless Steel, our coupling guards for pumps utilize cage nuts, which allow for single-tool adjustments. Sliding panels grant safe and easy access to packing glands. With punched panels that allow you to see the coupling without opening the guard as well as optional access hatches and polycarbonate covers, our coupling guards are easily tailored to just about any need.

EZ Return Idler Safety Guards


One of our most popular products, the EZ Return Idler Safety Guard, is a Guard-Safe Guarding original! We observed many conveyor belt systems where excessive carryback was accumulating inside the Return Idler Safety Cages causing damage to both the return idler and the conveyor belt. We knew we had to find a solution that was easy to use and simple to clean. Enter the EZ Return Idler Safety Guard!

Made from HD steel with a unique clam shell design (patent pending), the EZ Return Idler Safety Guard provides a simple and easy way to remove material buildup caused from excessive carryback, while still providing your employees the protection of being exposed to the hazardous pinch point. The EZ Return Idler Guard opens from either end for easy cleanout and maintenance!
