Fitover Sunglasses provide truckers with an effective way to protect their eyes from the sun. The unique design fits over-top of prescription eyewear, shielding the drivers’ eyes from the sun, glare and harmful ultraviolet rays. The polarized Fitover shades are constructed of a nylon frame that can be bent in half without breaking. Much cheaper than prescription sunglasses, they provide full front and side protection as well as crystal-clear visibility, according to the company. For more information, call 800-209-5164.

Like the one missing sock after you do laundry, pull bars have been known to mysteriously vanish into the ether on a long, or even not so long, run. The only difference is when a sock goes missing it does absolutely no damage; a pull bar, however, that comes rattling off a rig in traffic could potentially take a life. And that’s to say nothing of the problems the driver will face if they are forced to drop their trailer at the next stop. An East Coast firm now says it has solved the dilemma of disappearing pull bars. The Release Pull Bar Holster is a holding device which mounts to the side of any truck frame and provides safe and proper storage of the release bar with an anti-rattle, anti-theft, convenient design, the inventor explains. Available in Ontario through Groen Metal Products, to get more information, call 905-560-6064.

Dana Corp.’s Commercial Vehicle Systems unit has introduced the new Dana Spicer E-1462I Integral Arm steer axle.

The new E-1462I axle maintains the reliability of integral forged knuckles in a lightweight and highly maneuverable package. A patent-pending kingpin joint includes the use of two draw keys with spring washer retention in a more rigid beam design.
