Done Right Tie-Downs
Whether you tow a Pro Touring muscle car, an original classic, or a freshly painted project car, it's critical that your vehicle is safe and secure when you tow it down the road. Many people risk damaging their vehicle every time they tow it by using old or poorly made tie down equipment. Mac's Custom Tie-Downs is proud to offer The Ultra Pack. By combining the premium quality parts in a pre-engineered system, the Mac's Ultra Pack includes everything needed to tie your car or truck down safely and securely. The Ultra Pack includes four 6- or 8-foot ratchet straps (or a combination of both), four axle straps, four strap wraps, and a free duffle bag to stow the gear when not in use. The hardware on a Mac's axle strap is shaped to allow for tight clearance applications. Each full-length sleeve is designed to stay in place and is made from the thickest material available. The Ultra Pack is rated with a 10,000-pound capacity. Overall, it's the fastest, easiest, and most secure way to transport a vehicle down the open road - and like all Mac's products, the Ultra Pack is made in the USA.

The only problem is that once we get a good collection going, we end up searching through the drawers of our toolbox because we forgot where the needed item was placed. Thanks to the guys over at Z-Calz, the days of having to remember which drawer holds which tools are over. These toolbox labels are available in either decal or removable magnetic versions and come in a variety of colors and sizes. Micheal Castiglione, designer of the new Z-Calz, says he got tired of shuffling through numerous drawers just to find the right tool, only to repeat the process when putting those same tools away. Z-Calz toolbox labels are designed to make gearhead life a little easier. Call 909.225.2868 or go to www.zcalz.com and order yours today.
