Just Tag It

Updated: 03/17/2014 @ 4:42pm

Have you ever hooked a hydraulic hose up to the wrong remote? Farmer Kyle McBride from Danbury, Iowa, has too many times and finally decided there had to be a better way. The 24-year-old surfed the Web looking for a solution. When his search came back empty, he decided to fix the problem himself.

“We have 10 different implements on the farm that have hydraulic hoses on them,” explains McBride. “Every time I would go to hook the hoses up, I would forget which hose went in remote one or remote two. I have tried color-coding zip ties so you know which two hoses are paired together. But then I still didn’t know right from left, or I would forget if a color was for remote one or two, and so would everyone else on the farm.”

McBride’s solution is simple: Color-coded zip ties that are numbered and labeled “left” or “right”. “The biggest benefit is that this system saves you from guessing which hoses go where,” says McBride. So you spend more time working and less time connecting your hydraulic hoses.

McBride wittily named his new company Just Tag It and is calling the zip ties Hydraulic-ID. One zip tie is $2 or $4 per remote. A set of three (six zip ties) is available for $10. You can order by calling 712/369-9798.
