LA VERGNE, Tenn. (July 30, 2013)— Hennessy Industries Inc. has unveiled the Coats' Grip Max Plus Clamps for its X-Series and APX Series tire changers.
Features of the Grip Max Plus Clamps, according to La Vergne-based Hennessy, include:
• Increased capability—with an updated jaw profile to accommodate newer rim flange profiles;
• Improved grip on polished wheels—new material and a wider grip contact area to further minimize slip on polished wheels, offering twice the slip resistance of conventional clamp covers; and
• Improved durability—clamps last 30 percent longer than conventional clamp covers.
"We believe that our Coats wheel service equipment and accessories are the most competitive products on the market," said Kevin Keefe, Hennessy Industries' vice president of marketing. "The new Grip Max Plus Clamps are our most dynamic tire changing accessory to date, and we know they offer shop technicians further versatility as they work on a variety of automobiles."
