Steck Manufacturing Company has released another winning tool, the Tie Rod Pliers (P/N 71465,) which provides tow truck drivers and technicians with the ability to temporarily steer, load and secure a vehicle with an outer tie rod ball and socket separation failure on their roll back wreckers as well as to lot steer to the repair bay.
Tough alloy steel C-Clamp locking pliers provide a quick temporary steering repair for vehicles with outer tie rod end ball and socket separation failure.
- Tow Truck drivers can properly center the loading of the vehicle eliminating the frustration and time currently required to stop load process to re-direct the damaged wheel as well as unloading vehicles from roll back wreckers to lot storage.
- Allows technicians to drive vehicles from lot storage to repair bay.
Tie Rod Pliers’ unique design with a socket end and pointed spindle end allow easy wheel pivoting for vehicle steering by temporarily reconnecting the ball and socket tie rod ends.
Labor/Material Savings: Tie Rod Plier’s temporary steering fix saves the tow driver up to 15 minutes by ensuring the driver’s ability to center and properly secure the vehicle on the roll back bed as well as maneuvering the vehicle around the lot to the lift rack.
