Why Do Lifts Have An Optional Brake?

A rotating brake is used to stop rotating tops from turning. There are 4 different types of rotating brakes. They are manually operated stops, spring activated detent stops, spring loaded rotator locks and a rotator brake. A manually operated stop is a metal shaft that locks the rotating platform in 90 degree increments. A spring activated detent stop is a spring-loaded ball transfer that automatically slips into position every 90 degrees to stop the rotation of the platform. A spring loaded rotator lock is a positive spring and lever style detent (can be disengaged) that locks every 90 degrees. A rotator brake is a brake that locks the table at any position.
