Minneapolis - WirthCo Engineering has announced its latest innovative product, the “7 Way Trailer Plug Cover”.
This product, that tethers to the electrical cord, will protect the trailer plug from the elements and conveniently attach to the cord itself when it’s plugged in.
“The plug cover was developed to protect trailer plugs on fish houses from our harsh Minnesota winters, but provides protection for any 7-way trailer plug in any climate all year long,” WirthCo Engineering Sales & Marketing Director Kelly Eagan says.
The 7 Way Trailer Plug Cover attaches and stays tethered to any 7-way plug on a trailer. When you need to plug the cord into your tow vehicle, the cover snaps onto the cord to prevent it from dangling loose when you’re driving down the road. This could be an inexpensive way to prevent future problems such as losing your trailer lights or braking capabilities due to a corroded plug. Available in retail packs or in an attractive counter top display.
