Utility vehicles: Freight Defense, a single source for medium and heavy-duty truck security products, announced the release of their newest product, the Air Safe Stop and Lock. Currently designed to fit the Freightliner platform, this durable, dash-mounted parking brake lock prevents theft, movement and separation of the tractor and trailer. Unlike existing locks that need to be installed and removed during every stop, the Air Safe stays mounted on the dash, thus eliminating the need to store a lock while driving. Best of all, the Air Safe can be built to match the truck ignition, eliminating the need for a separate key. Air Safe models for Kenworth, Peterbilt and Volvo trucks will also be released soon.
“Fleet response to the Air Safe has been very positive.! The ability to key alike to the truck ignition, having a small footprint and the fact that it stays mounted to the dash makes the Air Safe unique in the industry. Drivers like the convenience, and fleets like the labor savings along with increased driver compliance,” reports Steve Holschuh, Sales Manager for Freight Defense.
