Truck Tarp Features Automatic Tie Down
"Quick, simple and safe." is how Glenn Brandjord describes his invention - a tight fitting truck tarp that cranks open and shut over any standard truck box, and ties itself down automatically.
"It's simple to operate and has no complicated parts to go wrong," explains Brand jord.
A single rib runs the length of the box, elevating the tarp about the truck sides. Ropes are tied from the edge of the tarp to brackets which slide on bars mounted half way up the outside of the box. A cable and pulley system, used both to roll and unroll the tarp, is connected to a crank located next to the drive's door.
"To unroll the tarp; just unhook the tie-downs in the back and crank it open. No climbing or running from side to side of the truck, and it's quick," says Brandjord.
The nylon neoprene tarp is weather tight and snug enough that you can, drive the speed limit with no grain loss, according to Brandjord. He custom builds tarps for any length truck box with a standard width. A tarp for a 16 ft. box, 8 ft. wide, sells for about $500. Manufacturer inquiries welcome.
