Minimizer has launched the Trailer Slick Plate, a self-lubricating polymer plate that attaches to a trailer’s upper coupler.

The device makes maintenance easier, not requiring grease and is designed to reduce coupling issues between tractors and trailers.

The Trailer Slick Plate reduces wear and tear on the truck’s fifth wheel, as well as the trailer’s upper coupler.  It can also improve trailer handling for drivers and increases steer tire life.

“The Trailer Slick Plate is an excellent addition to our line,” said Craig Kruckeberg, Minimizer CEO and chief visionary. “Nobody wants to have to grease the upper coupler plate, and with this product, you don’t have to.”
