About The BinKnocker

How it works

The BinKnocker is an easily used device for any hands helping to check bins! This works to indicate the level of product in your: grain, fertilizer or frac sand bins. 


This mechanism was created to give you an easy and SAFE means of accurately obtaining the level of your bin. By having a loop of rope suspended by our specially designed bracket located at the top of the bin, and secured at the bottom. Attached on the rope is a rubber knocker, by simply sliding the rope up and down and giving the rope a flick, you are then able to detect the level of your bin by where the knocker is located on the bin (listening for a hollow sound-being empty, and a thud sound of product being there). Our brackets are made from stainless steel and there are NO PULLEYS, therefore avoiding rust and dysfunction of the device. The rope used is: long lasting, braided, and easy on your hands. Our brackets and rope are made locally here in Alberta.


The BinKnocker is inexpensive and easily installed on most bins in less than an hour. The mounting brackets available are universal for most bins; if we don't have the proper bracket for your bins we will make them.  


This product has been used at a local fertilizer distributing company, trouble free, for the past 12 years. With many improvements being made along the way. Bringing us to where we are today. Working to provide a safe and reliable way for consumers to monitor their bin levels.
