Control your cables
The Qwik-Clamp is a no-hassle, corrosion-resistant solution for securing a Phillips 3-in-1 clamp and other applications, approximately 1.6 inches in diameter, to any cable support system between the tractor and trailer. The clamp is made of UV-resistant durable nylon for outstanding performance in extreme weather conditions with a working temperature of minus 40 degrees to 150 degrees. The stainless steel carabiner allows for quick attachment of the clamp to a tender spring or pogo stick. Unlike traditional hanging cable clamps, cable installation is quick and easy and requires no tools. Simply open the clamp, position it on the assembly, and lock it into place. It installs on the assembly in seconds, and adjusting cable location is simple. Qwik-Clamp’s secure draw latch creates a positive lock, keeps cables in place, and stays connected at over 100 pounds of pull force. For more information, visit PhillipsInd.com or call 800-423-4512.
Bring on the tools
The new Minimizer 50-inch toolbox is designed for drivers that need additional space for tools. Available in both chest and underbody styles, the larger box can even accommodate a full-size shovel. Made from a proprietary solid molded plastic material that is tougher than metal weighing 10 times more, it will never rust, corrode, crack or need paint. A 3/4-inch gutter and seal tight weather stripping makes the poly toolbox virtually weatherproof. The box mounts easily to most trucks in minutes with heavy-duty hardware that keeps it as secure as a safe. It is available in six standard colors including black, red, white, silver, yellow and granite and comes with a lifetime warranty.

A strapping new winch
Newly designed winches from Kinedyne are an average of 22% lighter in weight and feature a working load limit of 6,670 pounds as opposed to the current industry standard of 5,500 pounds. Each new winch frame has been engineered using heat-treated carbon steel with a black matte powder-coated finish. The design includes a single piece rolled, heat-treated, split-mandrel with a welded cap and a forged steel thumb pawl. The new mandrel retains its optimized web-slot radius, which minimizes cutting and abrasion on webbing. The material and design are also resistant to “egging,” or the elongation of the mandrel cap hole, which helps improve operator safety when using a winch bar. The company offers a wide variety of weld-on, portable, sliding, double “L” sliding and combination winch styles for every application. Visit Kinedyne.com or call 800-848-6057 for more information.
