Phillips Industries released a Qwik-Clamp for charging cables with an insert designed for single or dual pole applications, as well as a Qwik-Change 20” Tracker Spring Kit with Qwik-Clamp for charging cables.
The new products offer back-of-cab support for auxiliary charging system cables used to operate trailer applications such as liftgates that rely on tractor power.
Cable support is an integral part of any electrical system that is responsible for the operation of a tractor-trailer vehicle. Without proper support, cables can tangle, rub, sag and drag, leading to damage that results in downtime or violations, Phillips Industries officials said in a press release.
The Qwik-Clamp for charging cables combines the technology of the Qwik-Clamp hose holder with an insert designed specifically to hold two-, four-, or six-gauge dual or single pole charging cables. The red disc-like insert is the key component in the design for this hose holder, installed on the cable first and then locked into place by securing the Qwik-Clamp around it. Both the clamp and insert are non-corrosive and UV resistant.
The Qwik-Clamp for charging cables secures charging cables to a tender spring or pogo stick.
The Qwik-Change 20” Tracker Spring Kit with Qwik-Clamp for charging cables combines the technology of the Qwik-Clamp for charging cables with Phillips’ heavy-duty 20” tender spring kit for an all-in-one charging cable support system.
This product is designed for quick installation without compromising the quality necessary to keep charging cables off the deck plate, Phillips Industries officials said.
The spring is constructed of heavy gauge pre-galvanized wire for better recoil memory and longer spring life. The large carabiner wire-gate clip hooks and unhooks the entire system onto the back of the cab without having to unbolt the sliding tracker bar.
Both products are available from Phillips authorized dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
