Black Tank Pull Handles

Black Tank Pull Handles

Emergency Pull Handles

This Stainless Steel pull handle is truly an Emergency Pull handle since if your black or grey tank is full, and the Plastic Pull Handle Breaks, you have and emergency on your hands.

The hook end is fashioned to hook on the existing stop nut on the metal shaft that is still present when the plastic T Handle has broken off.  We have made these for the Locomotive Service Crews for years.  It’s also a great item to keep in your RV for the “just in case” day comes when you’re traveling and the handle breaks.

Locomotive Icebox Chute

Icebox Chute for filling IceBoxes

Challenge, new icebox has a tiny slot for refilling ice with a 5 Gallon Bucket.  The result was ice on the floor resulting in a slip fall obstacle for the crew.  The other challenge was bags of ice pushed in the slot and not emptied into the bin resulting in a clogged drain and then water on the floor.   Either way these easy to use chutes make refilling easy.

Shop Forklift Barriers

Shop Forklift Barriers

High Pressure Line and Electrical Protection


One of our shops needed custom floor plates and barriers for a new equipment installation.  With heavy equipment traffic in this area we needed to use some 3/4″ Steel Floor plate.  With exposed plumbing it was necessary to build heavy plate protectors to avoid damage from passing forklifts or other heavy machinery.

Blue Steel Co., Inc. SH10292M / Pelican 1470 Case

It’s been said you have to have the right tool for the job, we may own the right tool but can’t find it when we need it.  That is when tool management comes into play.

This tool case has 11 tools and the dies and mandrel must be used as a set.

You can see the “Box of tools” method of storage here.

Unorganized box of tools before 5S process

Often you find you have 2 of these, none of those and damaged or extras of tools that don’t belong in the box at all.

Once we determine what is needed to complete the work we also discuss storage and location space needed.

We will print a legend to identify the tools and proper storage location.  The only tools that belong in this area will have a place in the box.

The completed storage case is here.
