The automatic covering system, type VR-C, is equipped with a fixed kink in both covering arms. By applying this kink, the system can be built "around" the protruding pivot points of the valve. This keeps the system within the broadest parts of the vehicle. This prevents unnecessary damage. This maintenance-free covering system is very easy to install. The pivot point can be mounted either on the underside or on the side of the body. The system can be operated while driving. Covering is done within 20 seconds, a considerable head loading is no problem at all.
