A lock plate is a rectangular lock mechanism that serves to safeguard and identify auction trolleys. Every auction trolley used in a truck or outside the auction buildings must be fitted with a lock plate.
The lock plate carries a barcode and tag. When issued, it is linked to the customer. Upon receipt, the link is removed, and the lock plate can be issued to someone else. The lock plate can only be removed from an auction trolley by employees of Royal FloraHolland, by keyholders or customers with a lock plate key machine (SPSA).
Our employees have a special lock plate key, which always remains with Royal FloraHolland. A SPSA also contains a lock plate key. The General Terms & Conditions for Auctions Trolleys apply to the use of lock plates.
