Material Handling Device Mounts – 3 Options
A challenge that many warehouse and distribution locations have is implementing new technology and ensuring the solutions are easy to use and secure. While older warehouses may require employees to carry around devices or place them on their forklift seat, cutting-edge warehouse leaders are investing in top-tier material handling device mounts for increased efficiency.
There are numerous benefits to using forklift computer mounts. First, they give employees an easier process of finding inventory. The right forklift mount will make it easy for operators to locate what they need without having to personally handle the device (a potentially dangerous situation that can lead to injury and damaged inventory). Also, a high-quality technology mount is compatible with many devices including computers, tablets, scanners, keyboards, printers and fits different types of structures for multiple use cases.
There are a lot of options out there for handling mounts. To help you get started on finding the best mount for your warehouse, distribution center, or other logistics hub, we’ve provided a list of 3 options on the market today.
But first, let’s discuss what exactly material handling is.
What is Material Handling?
In basic terms, material handling involves short-distance movement within the confines of a building or between a building and a transportation vehicle. It uses a wide range of manual, semi-automated, and automated equipment and includes consideration of the protection, storage, and control of materials throughout their manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, consumption, and disposal.
Material handling is essential in warehouses, where moving inventory efficiently and correctly is essential to meeting demand. Consumers expect their products fast—whether they are in-store or ordering online. The right material handling solutions will help elevate your distribution and logistics to ensure customer expectations are being met, and your warehouse employees are happy and healthy.
The Top Material Handling Options
NEW – The WL-1000
The WL-1000 is a NEW, cutting-edge rugged, industrial solution for mounting tablets, computers, monitors, printers, scanners, and other technology to forklifts or other structures. What makes the WL-1000 a great solution for those looking to improve their material handling capabilities is its ability to work in multiple environments. Unique in the industry, the WL-1000 is compatible with all the top warehouse devices and can fit almost any circular, square, and rectangular poles or structures. This is game-changing, as other mounting options will require a very specific device mount and may require you to order additional parts from other suppliers to attach the mount to your unique structure.
In addition, the WL-1000 is constructed using innovative, high-quality materials that will ensure it is durable even in the most rugged environments. As a design-first solution, the WL-1000 will help you level-up your material handling operation.

Having a functional and reliable inventory management cart can also help your material handling. The Price Change & Inventory Management Cart from ENS is compatible with any scanner or printer, so employees can seamlessly manage inventory. Because every warehouse is different, this cart can incorporate comprehensive customization to fit your needs. An easy to use modular design makes replacing parts a cinch.
Belt Clip for TCX5
Never underestimate the value of having a reliable device attachment belt clip for your warehouse employees. While more simple in terms of its functionality, a belt clip can be extremely helpful in improving your material handling capabilities. Often an overlooked option for material handling mounts, this belt clip from ENS can be used with a hand strap, has access to a headphone port, and is great for inventory management. When not in use, it can even hold mobile POS solutions. Compatible with the TC5X, employees can easily clip their devices in this belt clip for ease of use.
