LUVERNE Releases New Hitch-Mounted Trailer Protector
Like Mud Guards, New Tow Guard Features Durable, Made-in-USA Construction
Brandon, South Dakota – January 9, 2017 -- LUVERNE Truck Equipment, an American manufacturer of truck, SUV and work van accessories since 1963, has unveiled a brand new product in its mud guard and splash guard line: the Textured Rubber Tow Guard. The Tow Guard is a protective trailer hitch attachment that mounts at the rear of the vehicle and shields a trailer in tow against mud, stones and other road debris. It features a universal design, simple use-as-needed installation and a dependable USA-made construction.
The LUVERNE Textured Rubber Tow Guard is primarily designed for two things: 1) thorough trailer protection and 2) ease of installation. The Tow Guard offers full protection for the trailer by creating a barrier at the rear of the tow vehicle. Spanning the full width of the vehicle, it easily deflects road debris that is kicked up by the vehicle's tires. The Tow Guard also features a sturdy, USA-made construction similar to LUVERNE Textured Rubber Mud Guards. Powder-coated steel and 3/8” thick rubber flaps provide a reliable shield to protect the trailer against nicks, scratches and other unsightly damage.
The Tow Guard is also designed for fast, easy installation. It comes fully factory assembled, meaning it is ready to install right out of the package. It installs or removes as needed, using the receiver tube of the vehicle’s trailer hitch. Unlike most mud flaps that are designed for permanent installation, the Tow Guard can conveniently be installed or removed as necessary, using a heavy-duty U-bolt. It attaches directly to the ball mount shank and maintains full use of the hitch and any electrical components.
The LUVERNE Tow Guard is available in a universal width of 72" to fit most full-size pickups and SUVs. It also comes in two flap length options, including 15" and 20", and can be trimmed for a custom fit. Models are available to fit 2, 2 ½” or 3” receiver tubes.
