ensure a connection
Sep 16, 2009 1:55 PM
New Sta-Lock gladhands from Phillips Industries can ensure a secure trailer connection when space is tight and reduced weight is a goal. The Sta-Lock gladhand combines a lightweight aluminum body with a cast-iron connector plate. The heavy-duty connector plate includes a spring-loaded, stainless steel ball bearing that provides a positive lock for gladhand mating.
The “locking” dimple on standard gladhands can flatten out over time, leading to a lower breakaway threshold. Additionally, road vibration and turning can cause enough pressure to uncouple the gladhands. Heavy-duty cast-iron gladhands can be heavy and bulky, and often do not fit on trailers with space constraints. The Sta-Lock gladhand solves both problems with the right blend of strength and size, offering a single product for any trailer operation.
