A lockable breakaway system that is suitable for single & double axle trailers. Installation is quick & easy because there is no need for cutting; you're able to mount it onto a pole or the frame of the trailer. Its heavy duty plastic case protects the 5A/hr battery & charger from the elements.
For trailers over 2000kg (Gross Trailer Mass) it is a requirement that a mechanism is in place in the event that if the trailer & tow vehicle separate accidentally, the trailer brakes are applied at full power for at least 15mins.
One way to combat this is with a breakaway switch which sets the trailer brakes in case the trailer breaks away, however this is not to be used as a parking brake.
It is constructed with a weldable tab and nylon chord.
