St Paul MN-based Deflecktor recently introduced a lock wheel cover feature and trailer mounting system for its Hardspot aerodynamic wheel covers first introduced last fall.
Jonathan Fleck, president of Deflecktor, said the wheel covers are already being utilized by large fleets including Schneider and NFI Industries. It is also being used on the Tesla Semi under development.
Fleck said the Hardspot cover enhances return on investment by reducing the risk of theft.
“Fear of theft has been a buying roadblock for potential customers,” he said. “A locking cover offers peace of mind for those whose truck and trailer assets go unattended for extended periods of time.”
Fleck also said the trailer mounting system comes pre-assembled for fast installation.
