Caravan and trailer accessory manufacturer Purple Line has launched a new high-security hitch lock which secures most standard Australian 50mm ball hitches both when hitched and unhitched.
The Saracen Ultra anti-theft hitch lock is made from high strength composite metals and has an anti-pick 7-pin cylinder lock with tubular, anti-copy key.
It has been developed for trailer and caravan owners to keep their trailers secure whether hitched to the tow vehicle or not.
Purple Line Australia director Malcolm Hill said Saracen Ultra was designed to protect trailers which may be left for long periods either hitched or unhitched.
"It's ideal for boat trailers, which may be left hitched at the ramp for hours on end, and then can be unhitched in the driveway for weeks or months," he said.
"Likewise, work trailers can sit hitched for hours on site, or overnight in a home driveway, often with thousands of dollars worth of tools on board.
"But Saracen Ultra is also for caravans and camper trailers, horse floats, box trailers and even car and motorcycle trailers for any trailer at all, really."
Saracen Ultra joins the Purple Line range of anti-theft products including the regular Saracen for unhitched trailers, Saracen Gullwing for European caravans and super-tough Nemesis wheel clamp.
They all reflect the company's commitment to design - innovate - improve and are resistant to cutting, picking, drilling and gas freezing.
RRP for Saracen Ultra is $149 (Saracen $89, Saracen Gullwing $149, Nemesis $249).
Purple Line anti-theft products are available at leading caravan accessory outlets nationally.
