MORCINCHTM Options
to Handle a Plastic Drum, a Fiber Drum,
or a Smaller Drum

MORCINCHTM Options allow you to handle a 55-gallon plastic drum, a steel drum, a fiber drum, or even a smaller drum with one Morse drum handler. Many Morse drum handlers accept MORCINCHTM Options to handle your 55-gallon plastic drum. A well designed plastic drum handler must take into consideration the fact that plastic drums are flexible and lack the supporting ribs that are on most steel drums. The MORCINCHTM Options below are designed to prevent a plastic drum from slipping through the drum holder. To ensure safety, choose the correct 55-gallon plastic drum holder for your particular drum.
