  • Fast and easy to apply at a low unit cost
  • Employs standard welding equipment and techniques
  • Tapered ends avoid the risk of hang up on a carrier or structural member
  • Three standard sizes fit practically all rods
    • 3/4" size
    • 7/8" size
    • 1-1/8" size
      Each brake rod repair requires 1 set (2 pieces) of connectors. Connectors are sold in boxes of 15 sets.
