Santa Fe Springs, CA – Phillips Industries introduces the new Gladiator Grip™ to their innovative product line. “Gripping it good” has never been better. Say goodbye to broken air hoses and hard connections. With the new Gladiator Grip™, simply twist on between the glad-hand and air coil for a more durable and stronger connection. No assembly is required and it’s easier to install or replace than the plastic 2-piece grips. The Gladiator Grip’s groundbreaking design provides effective leverage for coupling and uncoupling gladhands. “The Gladiator Grip is manufactured from aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum for strength and color-anodized to Mil-A-8625, type II for durability and easy identification. It is designed to withstand the roughest handling and harshest road salts, including Magnesium Chloride”, says Eric DeWilde, the Director of Research and Development. “Its unique ‘one-piece’ design allows for quick installation and easy transfer to new air hoses when the old ones are replaced. A new set of Gladiator Grips might just outlast the truck you attach them to.” Phillips Industries has literature on the Gladiator Grip, which is available upon request.
