    The people at Safe-T-Stop... have been over the past few years EXCEPTIONAL and the device itself (plate brake/suspension tester) to all intents and purposes infallible. On the rare occasions the unit has broken down, service has been remarkably fast. Annual servicing of the unit has been done professionally and always on time. Frankly, i wish more businesses and tools were all this more

    I did not realise the value... of Safe T Stop until we invested in one and had it installed. This piece of equipment would be number 1 as the most productive tool in the workshop as well as being accurate in its testing and diagnosis. Safe T Stop makes diagnosing and testing brakes and suspension easy and simplified with pin point accuracy. Highly recomend it for any more

    We at DRC AUTOMOTIVE had a... safetstop installed at our workshop and think it’s a great piece of equipment, every car that is serviced in our shop is driven over the safetstop to check and know it’s leaving with all brakes working as they should. We never realised how important this equipment is and what we have found when using it.Also the team at safetstop have always been great and would highly recommend to any other workshops Dion Clayton/ DRC Automotiveread more
