easylock_3Erlau , a leading tire protection chain manufacturer, has introduced a new connecting ring that promises to save operators money. Until now, the
fitting of a TPC required a number of special links to stitch the two ends
together. Erlau's new innovation puts an end to this.
 
Not only is this lengthy process laborious and dangerous – involving hammers,
pins, flying metal, squashed thumbs and bad language – but, once the pins have
become corroded, cutting is usually the only way to remove them and, once cut,
the links are no longer of use and have to be scrapped and replaced.
 
Furthermore, there are very real and obvious dangers when using flame-cutting
equipment close to tires. In all safety-oriented operations, the use of naked
flame next to tires is strictly prohibited.
 
Now, Erlau has created Easylock, a connecting link that can be fitted and
removed quicker than it takes to describe. Easylock comprises just two
components – an open link and a locking hasp. The link is passed through two
adjacent rings and the hasp pushed over the prongs of the open link.
 
The hasp incorporates a locking device which is secured with a 90-degree turn,
in either direction of an Allen key. Once locked, Easylock will remain securely
in place until it is removed in the same simple 90-degree procedure.
 
Either delivered with a new order of Erlau TPC or available separately in sets,
Easylock can be retro-fitted to any make of 19 or 22 mm TPC and promises
measurable savings in time, re-usability and safety.
