Curt’s TriFlex Towing Brake Control

08/13/2014 @ 6:45pm

When towing a large trailer, it is essential that the trailer is equipped with brakes and that the vehicle uses a brake control. Without a brake control, a trailer’s brakes won’t activate, creating a potentially hazardous situation. Curt Manufacturing’s TriFlex brake control significantly reduces a tow vehicle's stopping distance while ensuring a smooth ride.

The TriFlex is a proportional brake control that senses the inertia of the tow vehicle, allowing it to accurately apply the appropriate amount of power to the trailer brakes. The technology behind this control is a triple-axis accelerometer, located within the brake control. As the tow vehicle’s speed and momentum change, the TriFlex provides the exact amount of braking power needed for safe and smooth stops.

Using a brake control system will maximize the efficiency of trailer brakes by eliminating excessive braking and tire lockup. The Curt TriFlex brake takes less than 10 minutes to install and can be mounted at various angles. The sensitivity adjustment feature allows you to customize the brake control based on varying trailer loads or driving conditions. The control is compatible with advanced multiplex electrical systems, electric-over-hydraulic braking systems, and it can be used on trailers with up to four axles.

The 51140 Curt TriFlex Brake Control is available for $136.38.
