QuietGlide® Brake Clips

Say “Goodbye” to brake noise and “Hello” to better mileage. Carlson’s QuietGlide® Brake Clips combine the durability of stainless steel with the most innovative design in the industry.

Best Brake Clips on the Market

Carlson manufactures every QuietGlide® clip with precision. The clips are made of stainless steel for overall corrosion-free performance and are coated on one side with PTFE to reduce drag and an exclusive vulcanized rubber compound on the other to reduce noise. These innovations virtually eliminate brake noise—the #1 customer complaint—and can reduce drag so the vehicle gets better mileage.

Superior Manufacturing

The first step in making QuietGlide® Brake Clips is putting the stainless steel through a vigorous cleaning process. Then a bonding agent is applied to one side of the stainless steel and Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is applied to the other side in a coating line. The clip than goes to a Double Belt Press line where the rubber is vulcanized to the stainless steel. The vulcanization process includes an elaborate array of pressure and temperature in a process called Crosslink, allowing the metal and rubber to be intertwined in a bond that will not separate.


The final product can reduce drag and wear on the pads and rotors, causing less friction and improved fuel efficiency. QuietGlide® Brake Clips also extend the life of the pads and improve the braking experience by reducing noise and improving pedal feel.

Noise Reduction

Brake noise is the #1 customer complaint and reason for comebacks, so it literally pays to reduce noise. At an independent, third-party automotive lab, Carlson’s QuietGlide® Brake Clips consistently eliminated brake noise in cars and reduced it 47% in trucks due to the specially coated clips with premium vulcanized rubber (Click here to see the full test results).

Better Mileage with PTFE Performance

Using Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) on one side of the brake clip allows the pads to slide more freely. As a result, QuietGlide® Brake Clips can reduce drag and wear on the pads and rotors, causing less friction and improved fuel efficiency.
