QWIK-E gladhand releases brakes in half the time

A half-second delay in brake release at 45 mph reportedly causes a trailer to be dragged 33 feet. This delay and drag causes excessive wear in tires and brake components, as well as tire hop in stop-and-go traffic.

By using the Phillips QWIK-E quick-release gladhand, brakes are released in 0.5 seconds versus 1.0 second — a 50% reduction in release time. For more details, contact Phillips, 12012 Burke St, Santa Fe Springs CA 90670.
