TTC unveils new brake depressor

Truck and Trailer Components (TTC), the aftermarket supplier for commercial vehicle components, has launched a brake pedal depressor, which is specifically designed to help the driver carry out vehicle light checks, without the need for a second person.

One of the essential tasks facing the driver of any vehicle is regular checks of vehicle systems, including brakes and lighting.

Fleets and drivers need to document and have evidence that they have checked their vehicle and therefore it is road worthy before each trip. The ‘Extra Foot’ enables drivers to meet the requirement by law to perform the daily walk around checks of their vehicle before it is used.

This handy device is also available with additional components to assist with cleaning mirrors, reversing light cameras etc.

The ‘Extra Foot’, gives drivers a hand to simplify the checks, which when carried out as part of an overall maintenance programme helps maintain driver and operator road safety standards.
