Our tire carrier involves brute strength, power and force from the custom built struts providing 375 lbs of force on each side of the hatch to raise that heavy offroad tire into the air. There for, with all that brute strength, power and force, we call our tire carrier "HK Kratos - The Tire Carrier".
In Greek Mythology. Cratos was a son of the Titan Pallas (not to be confused with PallasAthena) and the goddess Styx. He was the personification of strength and power. The name is derived from the common noun Κράτος, meaning "force", "strength", or "power". The spellings "Cratus" and "Kratos" are also used.
