Yanker Tool – The BEST Fifth Wheel Pin Puller
The Yanker Tool performs the ‘up-over-and out’ motion the Jost© safety catch fifth wheel release mechanisms require at uncoupling. Simply hook the ‘thumb’ of the Yanker into the Jost© release pull handle, set the ‘foot’ of the Yanker onto the frame rail, turn it like a key, and then pull outward as usual. With the Yanker this release operation is performed close to your body, while standing upright, beside the rig instead of beneath it, all while maintaining stable footing.
Yanker Tool – Designed by Truckers for Truckers
Pulls the Jost™ and all fifth wheels on the road
Reduces repetitive stress and ‘end range motion’ injuries to shoulder, neck, arms and back
Keeps drivers clean and safe beside truck, not under it

Yanker Tool – Helps Prevent Driver Injuries and Costly Worker’s Comp Claims
Use your whole body to pull the handle instead of just one stretched out arm that is also simultaneously lifting and pushing forward. Yanker Tool makes the fifth wheel release operation easier and helps reduce your exposure to rotator cuff and lumbar injuries. An injury costs everyone time and money.
