SEMA 2016: Meziere’s Radiator Cap Ain’t Going Nowhere

 1 (1)
Meziere, known worldwide for its high performance water pumps, radiators and cooling system products has addressed an age-old problem in the invention of the SafeCap. No more famous words — beyond “gentlemen start your engines”— have been uttered in racing beyond “a five cent part put us out of the race.” When a radiator cap vibrates off, the consequences can be catastrophic.

This led to an idea of “double locking” the filler cap in place, which could be just one more stopgap to cooling system failures. High revving and violently idling motors cause vibration. Vibration causes the increased probability that anything not completely secured in place will shake its way off. SafeCap eliminates this probability.

According to Don Meziere, president, “SafeCap has been designed to address one issue that has plagued racers for decades. Standard caps often suffer damage that can result in the cap coming off at the most inopportune times. This new cap features a set of ramp rollers for smooth and secure fitment. The billet cap offers excellent integrity, fit and finish. The locking shell and clip ensure a failsafe, secure radiator cap that will easily withstand the rigors of motorsports.”

The SafeCap’s Billet construction is not only a preventative measure for cooling system failures, it is also an attractive accessory for any “under the hood” beautification. It is available with a natural finish, a black anodized finish and a nickel finish.
