Minimizer tool caddy

Rolf Lockwood

Minimizer has introduced two new products: a tool caddy and the trailer slick plate, a self-lubricating polymer plate that attaches to a trailer’s upper coupler.

The polymer plate means easier maintenance, the company says, with no need for messy grease and fewer coupling issues. It’s said to reduce wear and tear on the truck’s fifth wheel, as well as the trailer’s upper coupler. It also makes for easier trailer handling for drivers and increases steer tire life, says Minimizer.

The tool caddy is the newest addition to Minimizer’s maintenance line.

It attaches to the tire, creating a space to store up to 100 lb of tools and gear.

It’s designed to fit standard tires from 245 to 295.

A flatbed version is meant to hold all straps as a driver loads cargo, fitting inside the 36-in. Minimizer tool box.
