Air Release

Air Release option allows in-cab air release of the fifth wheel locking mechanism. With just a simple pull of a dash-mounted air switch, a pneumatic cylinder on the fifth wheel will effortlessly open the locking mechanism. 

In-Cab Air Release improves safety, productivity and helps reduce driver injury. Air Lock Release allows quick and safe uncoupling of the fifth wheel from the cab, and protects the driver from potential physical stress and muscle strain.
