TSE Brakes Inc., a global supplier of premium-quality brake actuators for the on-highway and specialty vehicle markets, has introduced the TSE Visi-Chek visual brake stroke indicator (patent-pending). A simple color indicator lets the user know if vehicle brake stroke is in compliance.
“This amazing new product allows anyone, from drivers to maintenance people, to check brake stroke simply by looking to see if the indicator shows green. It is very easy to install. It just snaps in place,” said Ian Shackleton, TSE Brakes director, North American OEM sales and marketing. “Now, you can detect improper brake strokes before a random Department of Transportation inspection.”
With Visi-Chek, checking brake stroke is easy. If you see green, then the system is okay. When only red is visible, further inspection is required. The indicator is designed to be easy to read even in low light conditions where brake chambers are located.
Five part numbers handle the majority of TSE Brakes applications. Each package contains two units to handle one axle, an instruction sticker to place on the vehicle and installation instructions. Bulk packaging also is available. The product will be available throughout TSE Brakes’ extensive OEM and aftermarket dealer network.
