Anything to limit the amount of times a driver climbs in and out of the cab is a good thing, especially in a situation where a driver is attempting to make axle weight. My experience when I was a driver for 20 years tells me this situation typically occurs in dark unlit lots and the driver usually wants to get going. Any reasonable aid a driver can have at his/her disposal is a good thing.
Keith Wertz Vice President, Loss Control Midwestern Insurance Alliance States:
By decreasing the number of times that a driver enters and exits the cab while sliding his tandems the Locking Pin Locator minimizes exposure to falls from the truck cab, whatever the cause. The Locking Pin Locator is definitely a product that we will recommend to our policyholders.
Lance Barnhardtst Driver – C.R. England States: I have used your product for a little over a month now. To say the least, I am very pleasedwith it. No more in and out of the cab or having to wake my co-driver. The first time I used it I was a little unsure, but now I couldn’t imagine not having such a great tool to simplify sliding a load.
Deborah A., Arizona City, AZ States: Ilove the locking pin locator! My husband used to get in & out of the cab 7-8 times to adjust the tandem, now only once.
Michael T, Burlington NC States: A wonderful product, it has cutdown on getting in and out of my cab greatly.
Gerardo Hernandez driver at J B Hunt states: The Locking Pin Locator is by far the best invention I believe, to have revolutionized the trucking industry. As a driver for JB Hunt, i hauled many loads varying in weight, needless to say requiring sliding of tandems on frequent occasions. Thanks to the LPL-600 i invested more time on the road and not getting in and out adjusting the tandems.
Paul Foster of JB HUNT states: A Million Mile driver from J B Hunt has commented how much time is saves him, how nice it is not to have to climb in and out of the truck repeatedly when sliding the tandems. He especially has liked it during poor weather to help keep him warm and dry additionally other driver are coming over and asking where to get one. This million mile driver that has been using the demo you sent us loved it.
