US-based manufacturer, Phillips Industries, has added an advanced trailer-side cable guard and an additional 3″ assembly extension to its premium 3-IN-1 electrical and air combination assemblies with Quick-Change Plug (QCP).
As combination assemblies’ popularity continues to gain ground, Phillips engineers continue innovating these connections where possible.
The latest product enhancement is reported to relieve strain at the back of the plug.
“This could be a stress point for any standard cable during a tight turn or jackknife, but combination assemblies can be even more susceptible to strain because of these products’ typical weight,” Phillips said in a statement.
“The tension over time can weaken the connection, leading to possible continuity issues or damage to the cable at the back of the plug.
“By adding a new durable, non-corrosive, and flexible trailer-side cable guard to the QCP plug and an extra three inches of assembly length, this becomes the most advanced combination assembly in the market.”
November last year, Phillips welcomed a senior engineer to its aftermarket division.
