Kit cares for liftgate sockets, plugs

Phillips Industries’ new dual pole maintenance kit includes the tools to remove contaminants and corrosion from liftgate sockets and plugs, and even identify degraded pins.

A bronze cleaning brush designed for plugs is accompanied by a stainless steel pin cleaner for sockets, and each attach to a quick-change driver handle. The pin cleaner, though, can also be installed on a low-speed drill.

A pin-wear gauge identifies the worn terminals. One side of the tool performs drag tests on female plug pins, while the other side tests the socket pins for degradation.
