Coil Spring Tool Prevents Accidents
If you've ever tried to extend big springs when servicing heavy equipment, you know that it can be dangerous as well as difficult. If springs get away from you, they can fly through the air like a missile to possibly hurt people or damage property.
Now there's an easier, safer way the new Spring Extender Tool from Commercial Tool Corporation. It's already being used on such diverse equipment as bowling alley pin resetters and overhead garage door openers but it also has as many applications in agriculture. It works on all exterior brake and clutch pedal return springs on tractors, tine tension control springs on chisel plows, feederhouse return springs on choppers, idler adjustments on any machine, boom retractor springs on sprayers, tongue assist springs on wagons, and just about any other spring on the farm.
The device is made of all-steel components that grip the spring' at both ends. Or it can be hooked to two clamps that attach directly to the spring. Either way, the force of the spring is controlled by the tool. It lets you safely extend the spring without the threat of the spring slipping. The tool is activated by turning the inside drive bolt. The bolt moves a threaded spring clip up and down to safely extend the spring.
"There's no other tool like it on the market. It's catching on fast and we're setting up national distribution," says Winston Scheer, president of Commercial Tool Corporation.
There are two models of the Spring Extender. The CT 25600 is designed for springs up to 12 in. in length and up to 3 in. outside diameter. The CT 30000 handles springs from 12 to 20 in. long and up to 3 in. dia. The smaller model sells for $112.32 and the larger for $125.42.
