Magnum Trailer & Equipment Inc, a manufacturer and service provider of trailers and equipment for heavy duty trucks, has launched a new and improved latch system for their tube bumpers.
“Our design engineers have redefined the locking system while improving components to prevent movement that is inevitable as trucks vibrate going down the road daily,” said Mike Eng, sales & marketing manager.
The redesigned locking cam is securely fastened by a retractable knob that keeps the latch in place and prevents any movement, reducing wear on all components. To ensure ease of use for daily inspection under the hood, simply pull the knob out and lift the latch. The knob is spring loaded, so it automatically locks into place once the latch is in the closed position. All components are manufactured from high quality materials and assembled at Magnums state of the art manufacturing facility in North America.
All Magnum tube bumpers come with the new system and retrofit kits are also available for easy installation by the dealer or truck owner.
“Customers love the new latch system as it’s easy to use, and once locked, there’s no way it’s coming open,” concluded Eng.
Magnum products are available from truck dealers throughout North America including, Mack, Volvo, International, Freightliner, Western Star, Peterbilt and Kenworth.
