Orscheln Products produces a patented line of parking brake cables. Orscheln Products’ first parking brake was patented way back in 1939, with the “over center” design, which used a pull-up handle and magnified leverage to help the driver lock the brakes in place. This design is still used in many automobiles and trucks built today – and the parking brake cable is what connects the parking brake lever to the brake itself. When considering a parking brake which features durability, corrosion resistance, and dependability, turn to Orscheln Products to complete your application..
Orscheln Products offers 2 main types of parking brake cables: 1/8″ PBT and 3/16″ PBT. 1/8″ PBT Park Brake Cables are designed for lighter to medium duty use. These cables are rated at 1,200 pounds or less, and are available at lower costs due to the commonality of components used in creation. The higher strength 3/16″ PBT cables offer the same qualities as the 1/8″ cables but are rated for loads up to 3,000 pounds.
