Pender, Neb.-based Blue Ox announced the newest innovation to its SwayPro weight-distributing hitch. According to a press release, the BXW4019 Signature Series Rotating Latch is a new bolt-on latch designed to accommodate frames from 3 inches to 6 inches tall.
The Signature Series Latch can be bolted directly to or around the trailer frame. The new design augments the existing trailer frame – some of which have difficulty absorbing the forces of a weight distributing hitch – and prevents trailer sway when used in concert with the SwayPro’s spring steel bars and innovative hitch head. Rotating the latch stops the chains from swinging, preventing sway before it happens, the company said.
“With the addition of this new Signature Series latch, Blue Ox continues to evolve the design of the SwayPro, the finest weight distributing hitch on the market,” noted Blue Ox Vice President Raymond Padgett.
Blue Ox offers the SwayPro weight distribution hitch in six tongue weights: 350, 550, 750, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 pounds.
