SafeConnect from Maple is an award winning safe trailer coupling device, that ensures a trailers braking system is permanently applied throughout the coupling process, protecting the driver until they safely return to the vehicle cab and are in full control of the vehicle. Only once the driver has depressed the vehicle brake pedal, will air be released to the trailer brakes and in doing so return normal braking functionality. With no additional procedures to action, SafeConnect is a user friendly system that encourages drivers to follow their usual best practice coupling procedure, ensuring that your drivers are always safe from potential rollaway situations.
