MCHENRY, Ill. Technicians and their customers have been given an additional way to improve braking performance that’s fast and easy.

Raybestos drag reduction clips help drivers achieve:

Lower braking temperatures
Improved vehicle performance
Brake drag is unwanted contact between the friction material and the braking surface when the brakes are not being engaged. Brake drag can cause increased vehicle rolling resistance, increased braking temperatures and increased brake component wear.
Raybestos drag reduction clips are designed for easy installation. Each clip has an application-specific design that fits over the brake pad on applications where spring clips were not part of the original equipment design. The clips act as a spring, providing positive pressure to the brake pad keeping it separated from the braking surface when the brakes are not applied. This pressure is light enough to not affect the braking system when the brakes are applied.
There are currently 40 unique Raybestos drag reduction clip designs that apply to hundreds of the most popular vehicles on the road today. Each kit comes with specific installation instructions. This low-cost item offers technicians a great return on investment and improved long-term braking performance for their customers.
