Ken-Tools reCore TPMS Sensor Saver
Ken-Tool’s reCore TPMS Sensor Saver System won the Silver Trophy in the aftermarket and and retrofitting category in the International Grands Prix for Automotive Innovation competition at the EQUIP AUTO 2013 show, held in Paris, France in October. The automotive aftermarket product and equipment show hosts over 120,000 visitors from 130 countries and boasts 1,800 exhibitors. The reCore was one of over 100 new and innovative products submitted for the competition.
Entered by Ken-Tool’s distributor partner, BV Corporation FRANCE, the reCore TPMS Sensor Saver System was cited for its innovative procedure to repair a corroded or damaged TPMS valve core and stem on a wheel, with basic hand tools, without dismounting the wheel and tire. A tire service technician can quickly and easily repair the damaged valve stem in 10-15 minutes without replacing the sensor, placing the customer’s vehicle back on the street while avoiding the cost of a replacement sensor. The corrosion-resistant Ken-Tool reCore TPMS Sensor Saver System has been proven over thousands of miles of real-world testing, in a wide variety of extreme climatic conditions.
The reCore TPMS Sensor Saver System starter kit (p/n 29980) includes reCore TPMS Sensor Savers, installation tools and thread-lock contained in a durable blow-molded and handy plastic case.
