Detailed Information:

Calvin M. and Jay L. of South Bend, Indiana, have introduced the Brake Buster, a cutting-edge solution designed to tackle the common issue of frozen tractor-trailer brakes. This innovative system connects directly to the existing glad hands of a trailer’s brake line, allowing for quick and efficient injection of deicer. The Brake Buster eliminates the need to manually disconnect the glad hands, streamlining the de-icing process.

By integrating the deicer solution within the existing brake line hydraulics, the Brake Buster exponentially speeds up the de-icing process. This not only saves drivers significant time and effort but also ensures they can get back on the road more swiftly. In a market where maintaining brake functionality and safety in cold climates is paramount, this product stands out for its practicality and effectiveness.

The market for tractor-trailer brake deicers is a specialized segment within the broader automotive and transportation industry, particularly focused on commercial vehicles. Brake deicers are essential for maintaining the functionality and safety of tractor-trailers in cold climates where ice and snow can affect braking systems. Increasingly stringent safety regulations and standards for commercial vehicles drive the adoption of effective brake deicing solutions.

With ongoing advancements in technology and increasing regulatory requirements, the demand for high-quality brake deicers is expected to continue growing. Key players in the market are likely to focus on developing more efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly products to meet the evolving needs of the industry. While there are currently several deicer products available on the market, they still take considerable time to fully de-ice commercial brake systems due to the laborious method of application. The Brake Buster is innovative, versatile, and easy to install/de-install. As a universal commercial truck attachment, it will significantly expand any manufacturer’s product line.

Calvin and Jay have filed their Utility Patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and are working closely with InventionHome, a leading invention licensing firm, to sell or license the patent rights to their Brake Buster product. Ideal licensing candidates would be U.S.-based product manufacturers or distributors looking to further develop and distribute this product innovation.
