Title: Repaired Pallets May Be Stronger Than the Original

Description: Stringer-style pallets are often notched to permit 4-way entry with forklift tines. Splits often occur around these stringer notches, significantly reducing the strength and durability of the pallet. Pallet stringer repair has traditionally involved replacement of the damaged stringer with a new stringer or support of the damaged stringer with various size companion members. In recent years, the repair of pallet stringers with metal plates similar to those used in the wood truss industry has become more common.
