Lippert, the parent company of Curt Manufacturing, LLC, a supplier of towing products and manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, won four awards this year at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was the company’s debut at the show.
The awards include two New Product awards and two Global Media awards. This was Lippert’s inaugural year at the SEMA Show, and several of its brands were also featured including Aries, Luverne, Curt, Ranch Hand and UWS. A Luverne Product and three Curt products were the recipients of the awards earned at the show.
The Luvurne Impact shock-absorbing rear bumper step and Curt GM Multi-Pro/Multi-Flex Tailgate Saver won the 2021 New Product awards. More than 1,300 products were submitted. The Impact bumper features a reinforced heavy-wall steel tube construction that provides superior protection for work vans by absorbing rear impact up to 5 mph. The GM Multi-Pro/Multi-Flex Tailgate Saver is designed to save Chevrolet / GMC truck tailgates by working in sync with the trucks’ electronics to prevent the tailgate from folding down and being damaged by the hitch accessory.
Curt’s QuickPin Coupler and Universal Tri-Ball Coupler Lock were the recipients of two of the 2021 Global Media awards, which were selected through the votes of a panel of international journalists.
The QuickPin Coupler design allows for quick coupling with just one ½ inch hitch pin. It was engineered to operate without a latch. This cuts down steps for coupling the trailer to only dropping the trailer tongue onto the ball and sliding in the pin.
The Universal Tri-Ball Coupler Lock is theft and tamper resistant. It inserts into the coupler and secures the latch with a lasso lock. The lasso design keeps all components together to avoid any lost pieces.
