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, according to the company, 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 company added.
“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,” according to Purkeys. “It is easy to install and use, as it works automatically both day and night.”
