WARREN, Mich. (Oct. 25, 2016) — OCT Tools, A Bosch Automotive Service Solutions brand, has launched the Strut Tamer II Extreme — available in North America in 6637 and 6637-ST variants — designed to assist technicians in replacing struts.
Replacing the original Strut Tamer Extreme, OTC said the new model builds upon the strength of the original, offering new features like forged locking jaws and larger pads and offsets to clamp onto and compress springs even tighter than before.
To provide additional strength, stability and safety, the compression arms are thick 5/8-inch steel. Locking trunnions allow for optimal stability during spring compression, OTC said.
In addition, the product features arm-locking rings designed to eliminate the need for tools to adjust. The 6637-ST variant includes a stand with wheels for moving easily around the shop.
OTC added that the Strut Tamer II Extreme meets the new ASME PASE safety standards for spring compressors.
