Strick Trailers has announced the launch of the DuoPlug, a device that keeps debris out of the internal cavities of the upper coupler assembly while allowing moisture to escape.
Strick developed the DuoPlug with customer input and makes the device out of a high-density polyethylene material. Strick said it has thoroughly tested the DuoPlug to ensure durability.
A DuoPlug can keep debris, such as road grime, mud, salt, rocks, insects, birds and even larger animals, out of the upper coupler assembly. It is designed to be simple to install or remove while maintaining a snug fit. In addition to keeping debris out of the upper coupler assembly, Strick’s DuoPlug can "optimize the hose/wire routing system to virtually eliminate the potential for hose/wire damage."
The DuoPlug will be installed on all Strick trailers beginning in Sept. 2018.
