CURT, a towing products supplier and custom trailer hitch manufacturer, won its second consecutive Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) award in the best accessory category Nov. 4.
The company’s new universal tri-ball coupler lock was announced as the SEMA 2020 Best New Exterior Accessory. The lock is a unique approach to trailer security, CURT stated, with a component that allows it to fit all standard coupler sizes. The lock can be used when a trailer is hooked up for towing and when left unattended.
“One of the most unique security features of this new lock is its built-in breaking points,” CURT stated. “If a potential thief is determined enough to strike the lock in an attempt to break it, the tri-ball is equipped with safety points that break off at the base under enough force. This leaves the ball inserted in the coupler, continuing to prevent unwarranted trailer hookup.”
CURT is a two-time SEMA award winner. Last year, the company’s BetterWeigh mobile towing scale was named the best exterior accessory.
