THread Saver Trademark
Ray Lambert, president of American Airworks™ and a retired professional firefighter with 26 years service, saw a need for some type of SCBA valve protection. This after repairing six SCBA cylinder valves which slid out of a fire truck compartment, while responding to a call. The valves had bent stems, scuffed handwheels, cracked gauge lenses and other minor damage. However, the heart of the valves, their aluminum bodies, received major damage to each unprotected CGA valve thread. As a result the expensive bodies had to be replaced. An inexpensive THREAD SAVER® on each of their valves could have prevented the most costly part of the valve damage.
