Electronic Trailer Hitch Up System
f you've ever tried to imagine the perfect trailer hitchup device - one that would let you line up a hitch pin without getting out of your pickup cab - you'll want to take a look at this new electronic hitching system that acts like a second set of eyes when backing up to hitch.
The system uses radar and sonar. Two tiny receivers mount on the bumper on either side of the ball hitch. A transmitter, which mounts on top of the trailer tongue, shoots a beam to the receivers. The receivers are hooked to a small light display box in the cab with arow of vertical and horizontal lights. The driver simply steers the truck according to the position of the lights. When the center light lights up, the hitch is directly under the tongue, in perfect position for hookup.
Sells for $499. Can be used behind pickups, cars, tractors, etc.
