Hopkins breaks away from its competition
Sep 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Hopkins Mfg Corp has debuted the Engager trailer breakaway system. The Engager not only activates the trailer brakes upon separation from the tow vehicle, but it also lets the user know whether or not the battery kit is charged and ready to use. The Engager box lid has a test button and LED test lights that allow the user to verify the charge of the breakaway kit battery.
The patent-pending Engager, also has a built-in charger that works while the trailer is being towed.
Hopkins also has introduced a line of LED vehicle-to-trailer, Plug-in Simple adapters. With these new adapters, the user just plugs in and is ready to tow. The patent-pending LED Series also provides the user with built-in trouble-shooting should a trailer-wiring problem occur.
The LED Series includes three adapters: 7 to-6, 6-to-4, and 7-to-4. Each adapter is equipped with a series of LED test lights unique to the trailer type connection. The 7-to-4 and 6-to-4 adapters test the right turn, left turn, brakes, and taillight. The 7-to-6 adapter tests the right turn, left turn, brakes, taillight, and electric brake.
