GEAR GUIDE Electric and air coil organizers Phillips Industries offers two products that help keep electric and air coils more organized. The 3-in-1 assembly combines Phillips' straight ABS Lectraflex cable with two rubber air lines in a spiral-wrapped bundle that includes a hanging clamp and clip for easier installation. The cable is outfitted with Phillips' Sta-Dry QCMS2 plug/socket hybrid that helps lock out road contaminants and a QCP (Quick Change Plug) that helps simplify field repairs. The QCMS2, which plugs directly into the tractor, rarely is removed and helps provide a built-in theft deterrent. The air coils have large grips for easier coupling and uncoupling with the tractor end, including a swivel fitting for easier installation. All cables are abrasion-resistant.
