It is a requirement in all Australian states that trailers exceeding 2000kg gross trailer mass be fitted with a breakaway system that, in the event of the trailer disconnecting while towing, will activate its electric brakes and bring safely to a stop.
Which would make it highly likely it will become mandatory in NZ -BUT even though it is not mandatory, it makes sense and could possibly save not only your trailer but lives. Install it today!!
Sure Brake Trailer Breakaway Kit accomplishes it's task with a durable, all-in-one case that houses its own 12V battery and charger and can be installed out of view, leaving only the plunger, lanyard and caribiner visible. The battery case can be hard wired to the tow vehicle alternator, or charged externally via its terminal posts on the front, ensuring its 12V 7A battery always has charge. A test button allows for easy checking of battery status and there is a remote monitoring output wire for those who wish to install the battery case out of reach or monitor from the tow vehicle cabin.
