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 $150 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
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.
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.
Conclusion 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.
