You can check truck brakes,Now easily
A in exspensive truck brake adjustement guide. 5 minutes and install it on your truck.
There is a great little tool that is on the market. Maybe a little pricey but it is worth having on your truck It can pay for itself, saving you, from one ticket.
Simply put, these easy to install brake adjuster indicators tell you within a minute wheather your brakes are out of Service.
What did you say: You do not need this because you have automatic self adjusting slacks. Well I hate to break the news to you but automatic slacks can fail and be out of adjustment like manuel slack adjusters.
Most drivers probably do not know that. The DOT FMCSA Regulations require vehicles to be equipped with brake adjustment indicators that conform to the requirements of Federal Commercial Vehicle Standard 121.
This indicator meets that requirement!and you can get a discount on ordering
for your fleet.
The DOT is not going away anytime soon, and neither is out of service violation. So why worry about out of service ticket when this little item can keep you out of trouble and safe at the same time.
This also gives you something to go by.If the DOT is ins question about your brake adjustment you can show them quickly the distance that the rod moves just by putting on the parking brake.
So it does not hurt to have a little gauge to keep you from an out of service ticket.
More importantly keeping you safe on the road
