Ironing out your pre-trip

PILOT BUTTE, Sask. — With 150 Truck Irons now in use throughout the country’s trucking community, the patent-pending gizmo from E.P.I.C. Canada Consulting is catching a lot of attention of late.

The recent arrival on the inspection scene is said to be designed by a trucker for truckers.

The company explains the device, which consists of a lengthy rod with a set of claws affixed to one end and a hammerhead on the other.

“(This) gives two ways of checking free travel of slack adjusters,” the company insists. “This gives you flexibility whether you have lots of room or not much room at all.”

“The claws are designed to slide behind the bearing housing inspection cap and pull the cap out easily,” says the manufacturer, for example. “The truck Iron can help the driver perform many of the tasks involved in a safety inspection.”
