Certification of Safety
Regrettably, inferior products which fakes RAPFIX2 in oversea and domestic partly have been on the market. These counterfeit products is very much alike to our product, RAPFIX2. We regret that they are illegal copied products which they are social problem.
BALL ROCK SYSTEM RAPFIX2 is serious security parts to administer customer's security. We manufacture and sale products to ensure safety through every industrial test. However, if you mistake to use goods of poor quality, it is not difficult to imagine to cause a serious accident.And then, to keep safety of customer who use RAPFIX in advance, we printed the logotype to its sleeve which silk printed of MADE BY WORKS BELL testified as RAPFIX original products.
Quality Improvement "Surface treatment"
In RAPFIX2, it is natural to improve material strength used by the best material through cold working forging, we consider surface treatment is to improve material feeling and wear durability much more. We came to the conclusion that we treated special effect a silver sleeve and hard almite effect a black sleeve.
In RAPFIX2, we treated Tefron-painted a fase of socket sliding(insede sleeve), so it is difficult not to scratch on socket and it is smoothed to slide sleeve when sleeve detaching.
Socket and Plug
RAPFIX2 as well as old-model RAPFIX was treated alumite on socket and plug, so it performs beautiful exterior while it reduce to wear away as use.

This product is developed for the race, in which driver changing takes place. Instead of attaching and detaching the Quick Release products, bouncing the steering wheel (tilt up) is much easier to complete driver-changing action. In order to meet the need, we renew the Rapfix GTC which was released for cars designed for street use to Rapfix GTC-R as a special parts used for competition.
We also designed a new big lever for the GTC-R. Pull this big lever and tilt up the socket of steering wheel side from the plug in car side. Suspend function for stopping at any angles and hold function for avoiding lever operation during tilting down are equipped. Tilting down the steering wheel can complete locking. Precision steel balls can fit the two holes grooved in the plug and the taper holes set up in the socket. Perfect combination is finished by the power of coil spring loaded on the sleeve arm.
By using the Ball Lock System, smooth hinge action and lock without shakiness are realized. The precision steel balls used for ball bearing fit the two holes grooved in the plug attached on the car side. It is locked definitely without any shakiness when tilting down. Rapfix GTC solved the problem of shakiness and play by using the Ball Lock System. Therefore, it plays a big part in the drivers severe steering wheel operation.
It is developed especially for competition cars. Three PCD50.8mm M5P0.8 screw holes are stored in the installation side of the plug that is attached to the car side. The same Six PCD50.8mm M5P0.8 tap holes are stored in the installation side of the steering wheel. Two electric points are set up for option in order to correspond to various electric functions. Furthermore, wiring is set up on the installation side of the steering wheel in order to fulfill the convenience.
The NAPAC standard test (a standard for after market products in Japan) has been done. A screwing test was done to check the operation of steering wheel to radial power. There was not any change in the shape after being pounded by dead loads of 29.7kg.m (291N.m). Moreover, there was not any change in the shape after a bending test of dead loads of 19.8kg.m (194N.m) in order to examine the effect when a driver impacts the top of the steering wheel in an accident.
According to the results of these tests, although the bending test caused the permanent transformation, it is possible to tilt up. Furthermore, the screwing test based on regulation loads did not cause any problems. Also, in order to know the limitation of tilting up, bending loads 38kg.m (372N.m) was given, although it stretched a lot, it was not broken and it is still possible to operate.
Moreover, 30,000 times of tilting up and tilting down operation in order to check the endurance were done in our factory. We confirmed that it is possible to operate 30,000 times without changing parts although it is necessary to smooth the parts with oil during the test.

Attach the steering plate with steering wheel and attach Rapfix QRS body with steering boss kit. It is possible to propagate the operation to radical direction by corresponding the overhung steel balls with the four holes in the steering plate. Furthermore, the three steel balls grip to the middle and lock the steering plate firmly by operating the directions of Rapfix QRS cover called roller & ball lock system (patent pending). Therefore, the operation to thrust direction is done perfectly.
Two foldable levers are designed to make the turning of the cover simple. It is also a safety device because the cover cannot be turned without moving the lever. The electrode installed in the plate and Rapfix QRS body, when aligned together in the attached position allows full operation of the horn button.
For other quick release manufacturers, it is near impossible to achieve the goal of designing a quick release that features easy operation with no shakiness or play. However, Rapfix QRS achieves these goals by utilizing the lever, cover and ball lock system. In addition, it allows the driver to maintain a comfortable seating position due to its approx. 25mm thinness.
Rapfix QRS has cleared the NAPAC standard (a standard for after market products in Japan). A screwing test was done to check the operation of steering wheel to radial power. There was not any change in the shape after being tested with live loads of 29.7kg.m (291N.m). Moreover, there was not any change in the shape after a bending test of dead loads of 19.8kg.m (194N.m) in order to examine the effect when a driver impacts the steering wheel in an accident. In the screwing test, there were no damages when a load of 45kg.m (441N.m) was done; and in the bending test, there were no damages when a 28kg.m (274N.m) load is done.

Born of long, long years of experience, a variety of broad-range functions.
Get on and off with ease from cars equipped with bucket seats or sports type seats by tilting up the steering wheel. Furthermore, work with ease on the dashboard and foot pedal area hitherto unreachable.
Uses ball lock system to realize both design appeal and functionality.
Tilt type steering system employs patented ball lock system and developed based on the performance tested one touch steering attachment-detachment system RapFix. Through the application of the patented features of RapFix, and using a ball to join the concave and convex sections, smooth connection and reduction of chatter are realized. In the same way with RapFix, equipment parts of high stability and reliability have fully developed. Ball lock system RapFix GTC incorporates powerful high technology in each part. The new work of pride by Works Bell and Night Pager.
Taking pains not to sacrifice safety and comfort.
Two-step lock is employed as a measure in cases of emergencies. For as long as the safety trigger is not made to slide, the lock is not released. Hence, the steering wheel does not tilt up with inadvertent contact while driving. Further, a tilted steering wheel is suspended (stopped) in about 6 stages depending on how the plunger mechanism is engaged. The steering wheel can be suspended at the position desired depending on the meter hood and other characteristic features of the car type. Furthermore, a horn button may also be used. The horn terminals are built-in inside the main body (plug) of the product and in the tilt-up section (socket). When tilted up, electric current to horn switch is cut-off. When tilted down current is restored through a contact point specific to the purpose.
Superior advantages over existing products
In many of the products of other companies with similar functions, suppression of chatter due to radial load for steering is made difficult by structural problems and sacrificing reverse, steerability, steering feel and other factors that bring about the comfort of tilt up. In RapFix GTC, however, the use of B.L.S. (ball lock system) made it possible to realize surpassing quality in existing products.
How to Use
1. Pull down the safety trigger (red lever) and release the ball lock system (safety device).
2. Pull up the lever under the conditions in 1, tilt-up the steering wheel.
Push the tilted up steering wheel, and push the socket (steering wheel) downwards until the ball lock system (safety device) locks.
