Keep Coils in Their Place

Coil Saver is a securement device that allows the driver to chain the coil on the outside along with the typical way of chaining through the eye. It is designed to prevent potential energy from transferring into kinetic energy during emergency-stop situations. It is not the number of chains but the placement of chains that makes the difference, according to the company.

Coils that fall off of trailers can result in property damage, injuries and death. The company says Coil Saver has a 50 percent more retention strength versus the conventional binding methods.

Tire Runout Gauge

The Tire Runout Gauge measures radial and lateral tire runout conditions to help eliminate irregular tire wear and ride vibration to lengthen tire life. The gauge is designed to pinpoint problems related to the tire and rim or other problem areas that may cause runout, to provide an early indication of wheels or tires that need to be reworked or discarded. The device uses a roller wheel placed against the tire tread combined with a gauge bar, individual low- and high-spot sliders and a magnified measurement readout that shows the amount of runout present.

Timed to Save Precious Voltage

The FlexMod Voltage Sensing Relay & Timer conserves the starting power of a vehicle battery by shutting off auxiliary loads when starting voltage drops to a low level, or a pre-set timer times out. The 4-by-3-by-1-inch system alerts the operator when starting voltage is low and cuts off non-essential loads such as air-conditioning and exterior lighting to conserve starting power.
