If you have ever had an experience of group roller skating, you probably know that as long as everyone skates together at the same exact speed, the whole line will move along safely. But, since the group simply cannot skating together eternally and someone will surely want to stop, the best way the whole 'train' can slow down safely is if the person who is at the front of the line sends a signal to the rest of the group to slow down. Only in that way everyone would avoid collisions and injuries. The same principle is applied when it comes to a truck towing a trailer. If you simply hitch your trailer up and set out on the road, slowing down becomes more challenging because of the extra weight behind your vehicle. Luckily, most states require car owners to retrofit their trailers with brake controllers.
The brake controllers offered by Hopkins provide a reliable and safe means of controlling brake force on trailers with electrical brakes. The device is designed to be mounted within a 360-degree vertical range in order to allow for ease of use and access. To keep you aware of the braking action of your trailer, the controller is equipped with a digital LED display, while to match the way you reach for the control, it features a built-in, slide manual override lever. Also, the device offers short-proof protection from electric brake wire shorts. In addition, each and every Hopkins brake control is covered by a lifetime warranty for increased customer confidence.
