Meritor has released the AllFit SimpleCheck, air brake stroke measurement tool on its automatic slack adjusters designed to identify out-of-adjustment brakes.

Out of adjustment brakes are one of the Top 10 CSA violations, according to Aaron Bickford, director, Brake and Wheel End, Aftermarket for Meritor.

To help its customers avoid these violations, the SimpleCheck is installed at the base of the air brake chamber pushrod to provide an accurate marker for visual inspections of applied chamber stroke on cam brake-equipped vehicles.

By identifying out-of-adjustment brakes quickly, the tool can reduce the time it takes to complete pre-trip inspections and eliminates the need for drivers to perform under-the-trailer inspection for air brake stroke verification.
