Many famous personalities can lay claims for the adage that “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Among contemporaries, there is none more famous than Steve Jobs the founder of Apple. This aphorism became well-known upon the introduction of the Apple II personal computer in 1977. Another device that can lay claim to sophisticated simplicity is The Squirrel.
What is the Squirrel?
The Squirrel is a wheel safety device that looks just like a piece of twisted wire. You will not be far off the mark if after seeing you will dismiss it as nothing more than metal trash. Make no mistake,regarding a safety product; this is head and shoulders above the rest. It is one easily fitted piece around the lug nuts of a wheel that prevents it from becoming loose. The Squirrel wheel safety device is always in position due to its design – akin to the central brick or stone in an arch which creates pressure on the side holding all elements in place.
Engineered nylon is the wonder material of The Squirrel. The properties of impact resistance anti-corrosion, resistance to extreme temperatures and reusable make the innovation a blend of sophistication and simplicity. Road dust and debris do not pose any problems as The Squirrel continues to do the job. The design is presently available for 6, 8 and ten stud versions. No special tools are required to fit The Squirrel whichis a product by Vehicle Inspection Systems in Orlando, Florida.
Before the introduction of portable wheel polishing machines, the trucks and heavy transportation vehicles necessarily had to undergo wheel safety checks in the fleets’ workshops. The entry of automation has introduced easy truck wheel polishing systems. The leader in automated safety equipment for heavy duty trucks and buses is VIS short for Vehicle Inspection Systems. They have the 2nd Generation VIS-Shine polishing machine completely manufactured in America. It is a one-of-a-kind polishing machine for heavy transportation wheels in North America.
The wheels stay on the truck meaning there is no need to dismount the wheels. Truck pit stops have a diner and other truck repair facilities. While the driver is taking a much-needed coffee break, the VIS-Shine goes into action buffing and polishing all the wheels in just minutes. The machine is capable of polishing both the drive and steer wheels via special adaptors that are interchangeableThe truck driver glances at the polished wheels and can spot tell-tale damage (if any) that will undergo remedial action at the Fleet headquarters.
The VIS-Polish machine is refurbishing and restoring aluminum truck wheels while the VIS-Shine is a maintenance tool. Both works as adjuncts. Vehicle Inspection Systems has announced that they are offering VIS Shine at no additional cost to buyers of the VIS-Polish system during the month of January 2017. This offer is in addition to the free starter kit and the training. The polishing business is ready to take a shine for additional revenue
