Simple Tool Solves Hydraulic Pressure Problems
A simple tool invented by George Waite makes releasing pressurized hydraulic couplers as easy as turning on a water faucet.
  Waite's Hydraulic Pressure Relief Tool works like pliers to grip the valve end. Turn a simple tap on one side of the pliers, and it slowly presses on the male fitting, gradually releasing pressure as needed. The controlled release keeps fluid from shooting all over you and the equipment and prevents damage to the coupler.
  "You can release pressure and fluid into a Dixie cup with this tool," says Waite. "You don't have to try to unscrew the hose or force the coupler."
  A universal reaction from people who see the tool for the first time is, "Why didn't I think of that?" says Waite. The next question is, "Where can I get one?"
  Satisfied customers:
  "I've been looking for something like this for 40 years." Roger.
  "The Pressure Relief Tool fits fine on my S185 Bobcat. Thanks for the fast service." Leny.
  "This tool is an excellent remedy for a messy and dangerous problem." Tom.
  "I received my Pressure Relief tool quickly and put it to work right away. Works great." Keith.
  The tool is powder-coated and priced at only $29.95 for 1/2-in. couplings and $34.95 for 3/4-in. or 1/2-in. flat-face skid steer size couplings. Call for information on other sizes. Waite points out that the tool costs less than replacing three damaged male fittings.
