Sanitization to go
Vehicle-mounted handwashing stations from National Fleet Products let drivers avoid germy fixtures in public restrooms and sanitize their hands before reentering their vehicle. The UV-resistant water-dispensing tanks are available in black or translucent white and in 6.5-gallon and 10-gallon sizes. Frame- and body-mounting hardware is compatible with virtually any type of trailer. The integrated soap dispenser is removable for refilling the water tank, and a plastic blocking cap is also provided if you don’t want to use the dispenser feature. Spring-toggle water spigots automatically stop water flow when no longer depressed, eliminating the risk of recontamination by touching them again once hands are clean.

The safe way to avoid contaminated surfaces
When you’re out on the road, you come in direct contact with a lot of high-touch surfaces. CleanKey by KeySmart can help reduce point-of-contact on those surfaces by over 99%, according to the company. The tool’s ergonomic design allows you to open doors, press buttons, pull levers and operate touchscreens without coming in direct contact with the surface. CleanKey is made of premium copper alloy and comes equipped with a free, retractable carabiner for quick, easy access no matter where you are. It is easy to clean with steel wool or a disinfectant wipe and will not tarnish or corrode. For more information and to order, visit GetKeySmart.com or call 888-900-5947.
Connectivity for the long haul

Designed to boost coverage for any phone that fits within its cradle, the booster adjusts to fit devices between 5.1 inches and 7.5 inches long.

Drive Sleek OTR works on all U.S. carrier networks with any smartphone and comes complete with a magnetic vent clip, dash cradle mount and hardware for a variety of CB-antenna mount configurations. The 5G-ready booster reaches out to nearby cell towers to access voice and data signals and amplifies it up to 32x, sending it to the inside antenna. The boosted signal is then broadcast by the inside antenna to the cellular device inside the cradle. Visit weBoost.com or call 866-294-1660 for more information and to order.
Give your engine a shot
Fuel Ox OTR fuel additive is a single-shot additive that boosts fuel efficiency and cuts soot and greenhouse gases. Adding a 3-ounce bottle to the tank during a fill-up can improve fuel efficiency by 4% to 8% while lowering diesel particulate filter regenerations by two-thirds, the company says. The highly concentrated formula, originally developed for the military, treats up to 120 gallons of diesel or gasoline to stabilize the fuel, lubricate and clean engines, guard against corrosion and remove water. The liquid has the added benefit of cutting soot and particulates as well, reducing the amount of greenhouse gases emitted. Fuel OX OTR is available in all-season, Cold Charge and Freeze Guard formulas. The latter two have anti-gelling properties. Visit FuelOx.com or call 844-8-FUELOX (844-838-3569) for more information, to purchase or to locate a distributor.
