Morse Diameter Adapters allow you to handle smaller drums with a single Morse drum handler. Inserting the Diameter Adapter reduces the grip diameter to fit a drum smaller than a standard 22.5” (57 cm) diameter 55-gallon (210 liter) steel drum.

Measure OUTSIDE Drum Diameter Between RibsInsert the correct size Diameter Adapter to handle each smaller drum. Diameter Adapters are available for sizes from 14” to 22” (35.6 to 55.9 cm) diameter.

IMPORTANT: Measure drum outside diameter (circumference divided by 3.14) half-way down between the ribs, where Diameter Adapter will engage drum.

Insert Diameter Adapter into Drum Holder in Seconds
  1. Insert with adapter hooks slightly above drum holder band
  2. Tilt Diameter Adapter downward so hooks engage top of drum holder band
  3. Adapter settles into place with lower tabs protruding below drum holder band
  4. Drum handler is now ready to handle the smaller drum size
To return to handling a 55-gallon (210 liter) drum, simply lift the adapter out of the drum holder.

Diameter Adapters for 17.5” (44.5 cm) diameter and smaller drums have integrated brackets at top and bottom of the drum. They adjust to securely hold a drum from 15” to 38” (38.1 to 96.52 cm) tall.

Diameter Adapters for 18.5" to 22" (47 to 55.9 cm) diameters have NO brackets. Install MORCINCHTM Bracket Assembly Kit with Diameter Adapter to prevent a PLASTIC drum from slipping, or to more securely hold a fiber drum.

As it is recommended that a drum be held at the middle, proper size Diameter Adapter should only be used for a drum with at least 8” (20.3 cm) between the ribs.
