Remote EASYLock System
The Remote EASYLock is our newest inovation. It utilizes an over-center latching mechanism that is remotely operated without bending over. This is a superior upgrade from our base model and expands on handle extestion option.

In the world of aviation, safety and efficiency are paramount. When it comes to securing aircraft for towing, the locking mechanism is a critical component. Traditionally, we have relied on our standard locking mechanism, but now there's an innovative solution that's changing the game. Introducing the "Remote EASYLock System" - a revolutionary upgrade that offers numerous advantages over standard locking mechanisms.

Comparison: The Base Model vs. The Remote EASYLock System

The standard fork and latch system has long served as the "base model" for securing aircraft during ground operations. It gets the job done, but there's room for improvement. The "Remote EASYLock System" represents simplicity, while providing a more efficient and user-friendly experience. Let's delve into the key differences:

Simplicity and Convenience

The base fork and latch system utilizes a pin on one of the forks with a locking bar that goes between the two. The pin in the fork goes into a hole in the locking bar. The base model requires the operator to bend over and manually secure the tow pins. This process works effectively but prioritizes simplicity and cost-effectiveness. In contrast, the "Remote EasyLock System" simplifies the entire procedure. With this innovative upgrade, you can secure and release the tow pins with ease, using a lever. This not only saves valuable time but also reduces physical strain on the operator.

Handle Extension Included

One notable feature of the "Remote EasyLock System" is the inclusion of a handle extension. In the case of the base fork and latch system, a separate handle extension would cost an additional $50. This simplifies the connection process. However, when opting for the "Remote EASYLock System," the extended handle is already integrated, essentially making it only $90 more expensive than the base design with the handle extension. This added handle length allows operators to connect to the aircraft without bending over, contributing to a more comfortable and ergonomic working experience.

Stainless Steel Durability

In the demanding environment of the aviation industry, equipment durability is a top priority. The "Remote EasyLock System" addresses this concern by incorporating stainless steel components. Stainless steel is corrosion-resistant, ensuring that your locking mechanism will remain in pristine condition, even when exposed to the elements.

Enhanced Precision

One of the standout advantages of the "Remote EasyLock System" is the operator's ability to achieve greater precision when capturing the tow pins. This system enables precise control during both connection and disconnection processes, protecting your wheel pants and eliminating the need to bend over. This innovation not only makes the operator's job easier but also enhances safety by reducing the risk of mishaps during aircraft ground operations.

The "Remote EasyLock System" represents a significant step forward in locking mechanisms for our aircraft tugs. With its simplified, ergonomic design, stainless steel durability, and precise control features, it offers a compelling upgrade to traditional standard locking mechanisms. Although it comes at an additional cost, the benefits in terms of operator comfort, time savings, and improved safety make it a worthy investment for those in the market for a light aircraft tug. So, when it comes to choosing options for your tug, consider the "Remote EasyLock System" and experience the difference.
