Pulltarps Mfg. Announces New Universal Pull Bar Design for All Automatic Arm Systems

By Pulltarps Mfg | September 27, 2008

The new Pulltarps Universal Pull Bar is the latest technology from the leading innovator in truck tarp and tarping systems. This extruded aluminum design is lighter, stronger and incorporates a hem tube groove to attach the tarp to the pull bar. This extends tarp life and makes the tarp interchangeable with manual Pulltarps® pull out type systems.

El Cajon, Ca, September 27, 2008 – Pulltarps Manufacturing announces an all new design for pull bars used on automatic arm systems. The new pull bar is a universal design that can accept an arm tarp with a conventional pocket at the back or a tarp that uses a hem tube. This interchangeability makes it easy to also convert existing Pulltarps® pull out type systems to fully automatic electric arm systems.

Made of extruded aluminum, the Universal Pull Bar has a groove for the hem tube that prevents the tarp from bunching at the corners. This extends the life of the tarp. The hem tube groove also strengthens the pull bar for added durability. Urethane bumpers that slide on to the Universal Pull Bar are provided to keep the tarp centered and provide better coverage of the load.

Mr. Lynn Chenowth, Owner, Pulltarps Mfg. said “The Universal Pull Bar is a great innovation.” “It is stronger, lighter, helps the tarp last longer and cover better.” “We will start shipping this new Universal Pull Bar with our automatic arm systems in October at no additional charge to the customer.”
