On the road, safety is a top priority. This is possibly even more true when towing equipment, such as a trailer, automobile, RV or boat. No matter where you are going or what you are doing, you want to ensure that the equipment you are transporting remains in perfect condition and that you, any other passengers and anyone else on the road are completely safe as well. This means having full vision and awareness of your surroundings, anti-theft security features and many other preventative items. Here are some products to help provide you with the ultimate safe towing experience:

To ensure that when your vehicle starts to slow down, so does the gear you’re towing, brake controls can be added on. Brake controls work with any trailer with 2 – 8 electrical brakes or 1 – 4 axles. This tool is not only beneficial when on the road slowing or making stops, but will also keep proportionate braking when backing up your trailer. This safe towing tool is compatible with electric systems, including anti-lock brakes and cruise control features. When towing, you will also be provided with a visual representation of the exact power percentage applied to the trailer brakes when braking your vehicle.
