Phillips Industries introduces their new, patented, multi-functional QWIK-CLAMP™, a hassle-free, robust, corrosion-resistant solution for securing hoses or cables to any support system between a tractor and trailer. It converts easily from a 1, 2, or 3-hose holder to a cable clamp for a 3-IN-1 by simply removing an insert.
Unlike traditional hose holders and cable clamps, with the QWIK-CLAMP, cable installation takes seconds and requires no tools. The clamp’s secure draw latch creates a positive lock, keeping up to three cables or a 3-IN-1 in place, staying connected at over 100 lbs. of pull force. With the insert installed, the QWIK-CLAMP supports straight ABS electrical cables and 3/8” rubber air hoses, or coiled ABS electrical cables and nylon air lines with long leads. Without the insert, it will support all Phillips 3-IN-1 assemblies and other applications approximately 1.6” in diameter.
The stainless-steel carabiner allows for quick attachment of the clamp to a tender spring or pogo stick. The clamp body and insert are made of non-corrosive and UV resistant durable nylon for outstanding performance in extreme weather conditions with a working temperature of -40°F to 150°F (-40°C to 66°C).
In addition to the clamp itself, Phillips has also launched a tracker spring kit with QWIK-CLAMP. It combines the multi-functional technology of the QWIK-CLAMP with the strength and durability of their extra heavy-duty galvanized 20.5” tender spring. The entire system clips on and off the back of the cab without unbolting the sliding tracker bar. The result is an all-in-one, easy-to-install cable support system for various applications.
Both products offer versatility for fleets with varying types of air and electrical applications and both are appealing in a retail setting, offering cable support that suits many different needs. The QWIK-CLAMP with insert (17-180) and tracker spring kit with QWIK-CLAMP (17-1481) are currently available from Phillips’ authorized dealers. The QWIK-CLAMP without insert (17-181) has been available since August and is the standard clamp included with all Phillips premium 3-IN-1 assemblies with QCMS2®/QCP™ or QCP electrical connections.
