The video is a recording of an IAME (Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers) Trade Education event held in the Hunter Valley, also supported by Penrite and Capricorn.

The video outlines the two accepted methods of CHECKING brakes (both are on-road tests). These are the ADR test – driving the vehicle at 100 km/h and measuring the distance it takes to stop, and the Tapley meter (or decelerometer), which is a pendulum device measuring the vehicle’s stopping.

The video then covers TESTING brakes with rollers and with plate brake testers. It shows the advantages of measuring the effectiveness of braking on each wheel to show imbalances, which can cause dangerous vehicle responses in an emergency situation. The results gained from testing a vehicle on the SafeTstop are printed onto a report the motorist can understand, and which helps to diagnose issues such as blocked brake hoses, leaking master cylinders, seized callipers, leaks, and proportioning valves that are not working. Testing in the workshop is also a quicker and safer method than road testing brakes – a test on a SafeTstop takes a little as 10 seconds.

With the support of IAME, the members attending enjoyed a BBQ (provided by Capricorn), education (Penrite and SafeTstop) and networking. Thanks to Wubbels Automatics for hosting in their workshop.

    Fantastic product, and great... after-sales support. The platetronic tester gives our customers security in knowing that their vehicles are being tested at a high level for brake imbalance, forces, and for steering geometry readings. Highly recommended.read 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 workshop.read 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
