Torklift International altered its FastGun turnbuckle, redesigning the handle and introducing new finish.
“From customer feedback and further testing on the original FastGun turnbuckle handle that allowed rounded openings for fingers to grip onto, the value of altering the design was significant enough to make the change,” said General Manager Jay Taylor.
The new handle on FastGun turnbuckles has a sleek design modeled after a pistol grip and is ergonomically easier to use, according to the release.
As Torklift shifts to greater use of lightweight materials, the FastGun handle is made from aircraft grade aluminum too.
“Upon further market research, Torklift has added a new finish and discontinued an older finish,” Taylor said. “The new high impact powder coat in ‘bright white’ matches the newer design of truck campers that are coming out.”
The previous finish in white matched a former trend of truck campers that were slightly off-white. The Long Range FastGun turnbuckle part number S9523 in white is being discontinued.
The new finish is part number S9530 and is currently available in the Long Range design. Other finishes of stainless steel polish, high impact powder coat gray and black are still available.
With the current changes in Torklift’s turnbuckle line, the lifetime warranty stays the same.
Extended warranty coverage of truck frame and camper anchor points applies when Torklift Frame-Mounted Tie Downs are used with spring-loaded turnbuckles on all four points of the camper.
