Optronics distributes first trailer harness plug protectors

Optronics International, manufacturer and supplier of heavy-duty LED vehicle lighting, has been named as master distributor for Connect-to-Protect brand Trailer Harness Plug Protectors, which are manufactured by Hanington Innovations Ltd.

Connect-to-Protect Brand Trailer Harness Plug Protectors enable users to shield the male end of a trailer’s harness plug when it’s not in use, the company says. The product comes in two configurations that accommodate 95% of all light- and medium-duty harness connectors, including 4-way flat, 5-way flat and 7-way round terminal styles.

According to the company, Connect-to-Protect brand Trailer Harness Plug Protectors are designed to help guard a trailer’s electrical system by protecting the integrity of the wiring harness at its most vulnerable location, its connection point. The product’s protective female receptacles effectively seal the trailer’s connectors against damage, shielding the plug, terminals and wiring from moisture, dust, abrasion and the resulting corrosion.

Connect-to-Protect Brand Trailer Harness Plug Protectors install on the trailer’s hitch coupler arm and not only shield the male harness plug, but keep it from dragging on the ground. Surface mounting the product is simple and fast since fasteners are included, and the only tools needed are a drill and a screwdriver. Flat versions mount with a single screw, and the round version uses four. Each screw requires a 0.125-in. pilot hole.
