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

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.

Trailer Red Line Lock To Secure A Trailer While Parked Or Yard Stored

Trailer Susie Lock is an excellent tool to manage a trailer fleet within a depot or off site.

If you need to manage secure trailers then a Trailer Red Line Lock is an ideal cost effective tool, when is a trailer is off the road, using a number plate style VOR sign is less than ideal, this has no protection of the sign being thrown away and the trailer used.

A recent theft of a trailer in Scotland with £300,000 of wine might have been prevented with a simple low cost Susie Lock.

Thieves have made off after stealing a trailer from a haulage yard.

The vehicle was parked in the R T Keedwell Haulage Yard on Uddingston’s Bellshill Road when the theft took place.

Between midday on Saturday 17.08.13 and 8.20am on Sunday, the suspects entered the yard and hooked their own cab to a trailer containing pallets of wine. They subsequently drove the trailer out of the yard.

Police Scotland said the retail value of the alcohol was approximately £300,000.

Detective Sergeant John Cameron of Hamilton police office appealed for witnesses to come forward.

He said: “I would urge anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious on Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning either at or near the haulage yard to come forward as they may have information that is vital to this enquiry.”

Commenting Matt Burke said “The Trailer Lock will stop easy movement of a trailer parked on or off site, locking the red line means a trailer brake system can not be activated and the trailer will move with the brake on. An excellent low cost product could save trailer theft for any transport or haulage company.”
