LOUISVILLE. Cargo securement provider Kinedyne is showing its new Retract-A -Bar this week at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville. The heavy-duty load restraint bar retracts from 107 in. to 53 in. for easy shipping, storing and use within large dry freight, refrigerated trailers, small utility vehicles and standard pickup trucks.

“We are thrilled to be introducing the new Retract-A-Bar - a more compact option to the current Safe-T-Lok Bar,” said Paul Wolford, vice president of sales and marketing. “MATS attracts the best in the industry – the product innovation at the show is inspiring. Each year, the Kinedyne team leaves with a fresh perspective from customer conversations and influences from around the world. We come back to the office ready to make changes and develop new securement tools to better support our drivers.”

Kinedyne will also host a contest at its MATS booth, giving attendees the chance to win ine of five $1,000 Kinedyne shopping sprees (retail value). In addition, customers who purchase a box of ratchet or winch straps from a Kinedyne distributor during this year’s MATS will also be given a free Kinedyne back pack.

Other products on display at the Kinedyne MATS exhibit include:

Kinedyne retail corner: A display for MATS distributor attendees, this simulated showroom will present the variety of supportive merchandise and display opportunities Kinedyne has for its products including custom stands, racking, display boards, and its functional and informative packaging options.

Enhanced Kaptive Beam solutions: Kinedyne Kaptive Beam Systems provide a “double-decking” solution designed to optimize the use of the available trailer cube space for interior van fleet operators. Kaptive Beam Systems create a “second deck” in a trailer for storing cargo using a strategic system of tracks and beams.

Kinedyne Polar and Tiger tarp ties:  Kinedyne’s “Polar” natural rubber tarp tie is designed to withstand frigid temperatures and severe winter weather conditions. The “Tiger” EPDM rubber tarp tie (synthetic) is designed to resist UV degradation with high elastic retention and thus withstand the day-to-day environmental exposure to heat found in warmer climates. Both tarp ties feature crimped S-Hooks as a standard feature. If the product is overstressed the S-Hook will bend, allowing a driver to easily make a quick, economical fix in the field by replacing the S-Hook or bending it back.
