Wood’s Powr-Grip® Offers Vacuum Cup for Windshields
A new tool for handling windshields, the LJ6VH hand-held vacuum cup, has been introduced by Wood’s Powr-Grip in Laurel, Mont. The large-volume pump of the hand cup permits quick attachment on both curved and flat glass surfaces, according to the company, and a rigid, vertical handle provides support for glass positioning, while non-slip grip holds the glass securely at any angle.

In addition, to help reduce unexpected pop-offs, a red-line indicator on the pump warns the user in case of vacuum loss, and a
special check valve allows re-pumping without the need to reattach the cup. Lift tabs on the vacuum pad provide instant release, and each cup is supplied with a protective pad cover.
