COATS introduces Grip Max Plus Clamps

Order Reprints

Hennessy Industries Inc. has introduced Grip Max Plus Clamps for its X-Series and APX Series tire changers. COATS’ Grip Max Plus Clamps features an updated jaw profile that accommodates newer rim flange profiles.

They have improved new materials and a wider grip contact area to further minimize slip on polished wheels, offering twice the slip resistance of conventional clamp covers, notes Hennessy. COATS’ Grip Max Plus Clamps last 30% longer than conventional clamp covers.

“We believe that our COATS wheel service equipment and accessories are the most competitive products on the market,” says Kevin Keefe, Hennessy Industries’ vice president of marketing.

“The new Grip Max Plus Clamps are our most dynamic tire changing accessory to date, and we know they offer shop technicians further versatility as they work on a variety of automobiles.”

Hennessy says COATS Grip Max Plus Clamps improve upon the long-recognized preferred tire changing clamps -- COATS Grip Max. The updated design will carry the Grip Max legacy forward through its wide-range capacity that adapts to a variety of rim sizes versus fixed clamps that require additional adapters.

In addition, the Grip Max Plus Clamps offer a low cost of ownership, and their integrated plastic protectors keep clamps from damaging the rim during operation.
