Trailer Air Line Lock May Offfer

aide automotive are pleased to offer a Special Price for the Trailer Air Line Lock for the month of May 16.

The Trailer Vehicle Off Road (VOR) Air Line Lock is an excellent tool to manage a trailer fleet within a depot or off site.

Off site a Trailer Air Line Lock can offer security against theft, with this lock snapped on an air line a trailer is near impossible to move. Simply lock on to the emergency C coupling of the trailer to prevent unauthorised movement, securing commercial trailers by preventing the release of the brakes

How Trailer Air Brakes Work
Trailer air brakes by default are ON, compressed air is forced from the tractor or cab unit to apply pressure to release the brakes.

Without compressed air the trailer air brake system is not activated and the trailer remains stationary, so, for example, it cannot roll away. The air line hose is integral to the trailer and cannot be easily removed.

Trailer Air Line Lock fits onto the red line which is the pneumatic high pressure hose that connects the pressurised air supply from the cab/tractor unit to the trailer. Trailer Air Line Lock fits all makes of air hose couplers and push-to-connect tube fittings.

Trailer C Coupling Lock Features

The lock sleeve is long enough to cover the male coupling preventing it from being unscrewed from the trailer.

Each lock is supplied with two keys, which are tucked inside a plastic cap for transit.

Compact, rugged and simple to operate.

To fit remove key and push lock onto the male.

10,000 Key combinations

Sets of locks operated with the same key may be purchased.
