Ken-Tool has introduced three new drum air brake slack adjusters for Bendix, Haldex, and Meritor brake systems.
Ken-Tool says the three new tools make the task of adjusting drum air brake linkage to remove dangerous slack on trucks and trailers an easier task.
The two-piece Meritor Automatic Slack Adjuster Set (pn 33200) features a 5/16” double square ratchet and a tool to secure the brake shaft from turning during tightening/loosening of the adjustment nut (with heavy-duty molded resin handles). Each tool weighs 10.4 oz. (0.3 kg), is 12 in. (31 cm) long, and is priced at $70.95 (US) MSRP for the set.
The Haldex Slack Adjuster Tool (pn 33205) uses a 7/16” double offset square ratchet, weighs 10.4 oz. (0.3 kg), is 14.5 in. (37 cm) long, and is priced at $33.99 (US) MSRP.
The Bendix Slack Adjuster Tool (pn 33206) uses a 9/16” double offset square ratchet, weighs 1.0 lb. (0. 5 kg), is 14.5 in. (37 cm) long, and is priced at $51.50 (US) MSRP.
The Haldex and Bendix tools each have extra-long handles for improved leverage and slip resistant vinyl handgrips.
The Ken-Tool Air Brake Linkage Adjustment Tools all carry a limited lifetime warranty.
