Minimizer introduces two new products
(Blooming Prairie, MN December 2016) – Minimizer, known for its innovative ideas and groundbreaking product lines, is launching its fifth and sixth products of 2016 – the Trailer Slick Plate and the Tool Caddy.
“These products, consistent with our Tested and Tortured brand, offer solution-based answers for those in the heavy duty trucking industry,” Minimizer CEO and Chief Visionary Craig Kruckeberg said.
The Trailer Slick Plate is a self-lubricating polymer plate that attaches to a trailer’s upper coupler. The result? Easier maintenance, no need for messy grease, and fewer issues with coupling tractors and trailers.
“The Trailer Slick Plate is an excellent addition to our line,” Kruckeberg said. “Nobody wants to have to grease the upper coupler plate, and with this product, you don’t have to.”
The Trailer Slick Plate reduces wear and tear on the truck’s fifth wheel, as well as the trailer’s upper coupler. It also makes for easier trailer handling for drivers and increases steer tire life.
“If you drop-and-hook often, then this is the product for you,” Kruckeberg said.
The Tool Caddy is the newest addition to Minimizer’s Maintenance Line.
It attaches to the tire, creating a space to store up to 100 pounds of tools and gear.
“The Tool Caddy works really well if your truck breaks down and you’re forced to fix it roadside. It’s also great in repair shops,” Kruckeberg said.
The Tool Caddy is designed to fit three applications – standard tires from 24.5 inches to 29.5 inches, Super Single tires, and flatbed trailers.
“The flatbed version is meant to hold all of your straps as you load your cargo,” Kruckeberg said. “And to top it off, the flatbed Tool Caddy fits inside of a 36-inch Minimizer Tool Box.”
