Two new coupling systems launched at CV Show

Published:  06 January, 2012

Fontaine, a manufacturer of both pressed steel and cast fifth wheels is showing two patented coupling systems at this year's CV Show which are designed to guard against vehicle and trailer misalignment.

On the stand will be Fontaine'spatented fifth wheel Tech-Lock system which prevents “high hitching” and is designed to stop miss-coupling and significantly reduce the risk of a dropped trailer.

Along with the Tech-Lock system, Fontaine is showing its Two Position Slider with 150SP fifth wheel which eliminates the need for split coupling.

Its patented sensor system restricts the speed of the vehicle if the fifth wheel is left in the wrong position. In addition, there will be a 3-sensor fifth wheel, a low maintenance 3000 LM fifth wheel and a lightweight slider on show.
