Warn's New Hub Fuse Named Runner-Up for SEMA's Best Off-Road Product

22 December 2000

Warn Industries' New Hub Fuse(TM) Named Runner-Up for SEMA's Best Off-Road Product of the Year
    CLACKAMAS, Ore., Dec. 21 Warn Industries' new Hub Fuse(TM)
was chosen as runner-up for the Best Off-road Product of the Year at the 2000
Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show held
October 30 - November 2 in Las Vegas. Warn's Hub Fuse, which debuted at SEMA,
is a replacement clutch ring designed to fail before a standard 297x U-joint.
A used hub fuse can be replaced in minutes on the trail with standard tools
and takes far less time to replace than an expensive U-joint.
    "We created the new Hub Fuse to save hard-core competitive off-roaders
valuable time over replacing a U-joint," said Bob Richmond, Warn Industries
Brand Director. "Our customers are happy with it and we consider it a bonus to
be recognized with an award from our peers at SEMA."
    The Warn Hub Fuse was chosen from among hundreds of new products on
display at the SEMA event, where more than 1,300 exhibitors in 6,000 booths
displayed products for 82,000 professionals to view.
