Protect your boat from theft this summer with Hitch Helmut

With the peak holiday boating season just around the corner, boat owners are reminded to ensure their boats and trailers are secured at all times to minimise the risk of theft.

While there are various versions of trailer locks on the market, the Australian-designed Hitch Helmet is a patented dual locking system that not only deters theft, but doubles as a safety device to prevent trailers from disconnecting while on the move.

Hitch Helmet covers the connecting mechanism between the towbar, towball, and trailer hitch, and simply locks around the trailer hitch when the trailer is not connected to the vehicle.

Manufacturer/distributor and Oceanic Trailers director Phil Peterson said Hitch Helmet was virtually indestructible.

'The locking strength and towing capabilities of Hitch Helmet have been fully tested by numerous automotive authorities and law enforcement bodies, including the Water Police, and received the best results of any trailer lock on the market,' Mr Peterson said.

'Providing a formidable deterrent for thieves, boat owners who use Hitch Helmet may also be entitled to discounts on insurance premiums and theft excess.'

As one example, insurance provider Club Marine supports the use of the Hitch Helmet as an anti-theft device. In recognition of this, individual policies may qualify for a waiver of the trailer boat theft excess.

Constructed from anti-corrosive material AS1831-500/7 and manufactured to AS/NZs ISO9002 quality, Hitch Helmet is an important piece of equipment to have on hand at all times.

With a RRP from $149, the Hitch Helmet is available from selected marine retail outlets or can purchased direct from the manufacturer, Oceanic Trailers – 1300 852 404 or www.oceanictrailers.com.au
