Soft-grip cover fits over park brake valve
Sep 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC has developed a new soft-grip cover to fit its PP-1 and PP-DC dash valves.
The E-Z-Grip soft button cover consists of a neoprene rubber cover that slips easily over the park brake valve. This product was originally designed for bus drivers to ease discomfort and fatigue in the hand and wrist associated with repeated applications of the park brake, and has since been adapted for use on heavy-duty trucks.
As a driver grips and pulls the park brake valve to apply the brake, pressurized air pops the valve button away from the dash. E-Z-Grip absorbs the vibration while adding comfort and a better grip for drivers.
