Draw-Tite's Activator electronic trailer brake control begins applying the trailer's brakes electronically as soon as the brake pedal is engaged, unlike pendulum models which react to inertia created after the tow vehicle's brakes have already begun to stop. This economically priced brake control is 100% solid state and can be mounted in any position.

  • Not recommended for use with BMW X5 Sport Utility Vehicles.

  • Output - For ease of adjustment, the output control is located on the front of Activator. It has a slide adjustment and its output indicator is a red light, which illuminates when the brakes are applied.
  • Sync - The sync control is a slide adjustment located on the side of the controller to syncronize the braking between tow vehicle and trailer.
  • Manual - The manual control is activated by squeezing the trigger located on the front of the Activator. Its use will illuminate both the tow vehicle and trailer stop lights as required by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regulations.
  • Installation - Activator has no moving parts or pendulums to adjust, so it can be mounted in virtually any position. Activator also includes a Plug-N-Play port to accept Tow Ready brake control harnesses. Click Here to find a custom fit brake control harness for your vehicle.

Over fifty years and millions of trailer hitches later, our 500 dedicated employees put the same care and patience into every hitch we build today as Bill Whichello did fifty years ago. We also make use of technologically advanced equipment and the most experience in the industry to meet the challenges of tow vehicles.

The basis of our continued success is that our trailer hitches are custom fit for each vehicle. This makes them easy to install. A dealer simply bolts one piece, welded trailer hitches to the vehicle frame. Most installations take 30 minutes or less.

Our trailer hitches are covered by a Nationwide/lifetime limited warranty. We have over 10,000 dealers throughout North America. So wherever you live or travel, there is always a knowledgeable and helpful Draw-Tite dealer nearby. This is especially important when you consider nearly 100% of our consumers use their trailer hitch to tow outside of their local area.
