MANUFACTURING SPECS
The CA7149 kit is made in the U.S.A. from
high-strength tool steel globally sourced
components. The drop-forged C-frame is made
from a single piece of steel, which the company
says makes it stronger and more durable than
a cast frame. Additionally, the lighter weight of
these tools makes for less fatigue and easier
setup and positioning.
ORIGIN
The Connected Adapter Ball Joint Starter
Kit was developed to solve the problem of
needing a larger C-frame to work on bigger
vehicles and bigger suspension components.
The current C-frame setup can be unwieldy
to set, says the company, so having cups and
adapters that lock-in, makes set up, removal,
and installation faster and easier.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
* Keeps all cups, adapters, and ball joints
connected to the C-frame.
* The ball joint nests inside connected
adapters for one-hand setup.
* A wide range of vehicle applications allows
technicians to work on small passenger
vehicles up to larger 5500-series trucks.
* Compatible with OTC cups and adapters,
expanding a technician's current ball
joint kits.
STORAGE AND DISPLAY
The kits are individually shipped in a box and
come in a blow molded case with custom
insets for the C-frame, forcing screw, and cups/
adapters. The company recommends having
the case open with the adapter and cup
connected to the C-frame for technicians to
pick up and feel the secure click of the
connected adapters.
