The Detect-A-Finger Drop-Probe Device is designed to prevent a riveter, welder or other small machine from cycling if it encounters fingers in the point-of-operation area, thus preventing contact between the operator and dangerous moving parts. Whenever an operator initiates a machine cycle, typically through an electric foot switch, the Detect-A-Finger sensing probe is released automatically, ensuring safeguarding cannot be deactivated or overlooked by the operator.
