Life before FastGuns... by Torklift Jen
Although it’s impossible for me to imagine, and difficult for those who have come to love the FastGun, that there was life before this revolutionary turnbuckle.
I went to the oldest person I know, my 105-year-old grandmother, and asked her what it was like before the FastGun. She said, “ We used bows and arrows.”
So, okay, not that far back.
She’s not a truck camper, but she did tell me a camping story that falls somewhere in the timeline between covered wagon and the Winnebago, but I’ll save that for a later date.
I resolved to find out what it was like. So, I went to the computer and typed in a query.
A generic turnbuckle is really just a simple piece of tension building hardware used in marine applications, sports, shipping and construction.
It is a simple piece of hardware that can make a simple task difficult.
“Big Red,” the Ford F-350, doubles as a work truck and a weekend camper. I can’t imagine taking the camper off and back on this often without the FastGun turnbuckle.
They are spring loaded for superb functioning, easy adjustment and have spring tension indicators, that take the guess work out of tightening and securing.
They have a quick disconnect feature that makes the leveling process fast. They allow use of the electric jacks to level when the camper is left on the truck. This avoids the hassle of leveling blocks under your tires.
100% no tools, 100% lockable, quick-lever handle and a lifetime warranty that means with my genetics for longevity may be a very, very long time.
There is no turning back for the turnbuckle. http://www.torklift.com/x.php?w_page=original_fastguns
