A pneumatic, pin-pulling system, Quik-Draw reduces driver effort to a fingertip pull. After trailer brakes have been set, the driver pulls the externally mounted operating knob on the slider. When activated, Quik-Draw applies continuous pressure until pins release, simplifying repositioning if pins are frozen or jammed. Once the slider has been repositioned, a push of the knob resets slider pins.
Quik-Draw enhances safety by automatically resetting pins when the trailer emergency brake is released. Quik-Draw is compatible with all Vantraax slider designs. For more details, contact Hendrickson, 800 S Frontage Rd, Woodridge IL 60517-4904.
