Phillips Industries Expands and Enhances Its Power Air Kit (PAK) Product Offering for Replacement of Any Level of Back-of-Cab Equipment

Santa Fe Springs, CA (June 15, 2022)

Phillips Industries has introduced two new Power Air Kits (PAKs), expanding its product line to offer three different solutions to replace any level of back-of-cab equipment.  A PAK combines 12’ or 15’ length electrical and air assemblies with factory-installed gladhands and cable support in an easy-to-carry box with retail graphics.  Phillips PAKs are complete back-of-cab systems sold under one part number, offering easier inventory management, invoicing, simplified service scheduling, and convenient sourcing for retail and installation.   

The Phillips PAK line-up, with the introduction of the STA-DRY® and OEM Standard PAKs joining the QWIK-CHANGE™ PAK, provides premium and now mid-level and essential options for back-of-cab replacement.

The new STA-DRY® PAK is perfect for those vehicle operators looking for superior performance at an affordable cost.  The ABS electrical cable features completely molded STA-DRY® plugs to prevent moisture intrusion and cable guards for strain relief.  Heavy-duty black rubber air lines with red and blue grips for easy coupling and uncoupling include factory-installed gladhands for quick and easy set-up.  Two 20” heavy-duty tracker spring kits with QWIK-CLAMP™ provide quick installation and proper 3-IN-1 cable support.    

The OEM Standard PAK is a value-priced essential back-of-cab system.  The ABS electrical cable comes with Phillips OEM specified PERMAPLUGS™, which are unbreakable, non-corrosive, and weather resistant.  Heavy-duty black rubber air lines include factory-installed gladhands for quick and easy set-up.  Mini pre-cut spiral wrap curls create organization and bring electrical and air lines together to help avoid tangling and prevent damage from using cable ties.  A 20” heavy-duty tracker spring kit with QWIK-SNAP™ provides quick installation for 3-hose cable support.

In addition to these two new kits, the existing premium 3-IN-1 QWIK-CHANGE™ PAK’s performance is now enhanced with upgraded rubber air line grips.  The redesigned POWER GRIP™ XL handles are wider in diameter and increased in length from four to six inches.  The solid rubber grips are molded to contour the air fittings and hoses to keep the handles in place.  In addition to an improved ergonomic feel offering greater leverage for coupling and uncoupling, the new POWER GRIP XL also enhances kink prevention and hose protection during jackknife turns at the base of the handles.   Comprised of quality components for ease of serviceability, installation, and over-the-road longevity to offer premium performance, additional key features of the fleet-preferred QWIK-CHANGE PAK include:

  • The revolutionary and innovative QCP™ (Quick-Change Plug) with a plug-in cartridge that is field serviceable in under 2-minutes. 
  • ABS cable guard and extended lead length on the trailer side for added cable support and strain relief.
  • Heavy-duty rubber air lines with factory-installed anodized gladhands to prevent corrosion.
  • Two 25” QWIK-CHANGE™ Tracker Spring Kits with QWIK-CLAMP™ for proper 3-IN-1 cable support that installs in seconds without using tools.

All PAKs are available from Phillips authorized distributors.  Restart the clock now for regular replacement of back-of-cab components and simplify your service schedule and inventory part number management.
