Gladhand releases brakes in half the time
Jul 1, 2003 12:00 PM
A half-second delay in brake release at 45 mph reportedly causes a trailer to be dragged 33 feet. This delay and drag causes excessive wear in tires and brake components, as well as tire hop in stop-and-go traffic.
By using the Phillips QWIK-E quick-release gladhand, brakes are released in 0.5 seconds versus 1.0 second — a 50% reduction in release time.
