    Flaps-Up: For When Truckers Back Up

    Truck drivers know that mudflaps can be a pain. They rip, tear and fall off all the time, causing damage and slowing truckers down. Even worse, broken flaps can kick up stones that could crack or break through windshields.
    “Having to deal with the aggravation, ripping the flaps off, losing a flap, it costs you time,” said Flaps-Up user Gerald Pinkney. “And time is money.”

    But now, there’s a solution to all of these problems: Flaps-Up. Flaps-Up is the first product that keeps your mudflaps safe by automatically raising them up when you put your truck in reverse. In short: Flaps-Up keeps your flaps up when you back up.

    Flaps-Up saves truckers time, fuel and money, according to inventor Jerry Proctor. No more traffic citations for missing flaps. No more wasting money on mudflap repairs. And no more insurance claims over damage from kicked-up stones.

    Flaps-Up is easy to install. The mudflaps can be raised as high or low as you want them, and can be raised and lowered with the press of a button.
