LOWELL, Ark., Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Purkeys, a company focused on providing electrical solutions for the heavy-duty trucking industry, developed the 5th Wheel Light to help drivers by illuminating the king pin lock-jaw position, which will help greatly reduce dropped trailers.
The 5th Wheel Light is a coupling light, or trailer-hitch light, that eliminates shadows on the locking mechanisms and removes the need for a flashlight. This tractor trailer light makes it easier for drivers and technicians to verify that everything is properly connected.
The 5th Wheel Light makes life safer and easier for drivers by freeing their hands and allowing them to easily see the connection when coupling truck and trailer. It is easy to install and use, as it works automatically both day and night.
This simple product can help drivers and fleets avoid expensive, catastrophic accidents by allowing drivers to visually inspect and confirm a proper coupling between the truck and trailer.
For more than 25 years, Purkeys has delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions for the electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets. They look at the electrical system as a whole, then strategically work to achieve the maximum return on investment while reducing maintenance costs and equipment usage. Their level of expertise has garnered more than ten U.S. patents and attracted the attention of fleets, OEMs, and other industry leaders throughout North America.
