Lippert Wins Four Product Awards at 2021 SEMA Show
December 7, 2021
Eau Claire, WI – Lippert Components, Inc. (Lippert™), the parent company of Curt Manufacturing, LLC (CURT®), supplier of a complete line of towing products and a leading manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, and the owner of the LUVERNE® brand, a trusted name in truck, commercial van and SUV accessories, was honored to win four awards this year at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, including two New Product awards and two Global Media awards. This year was Lippert’s inaugural year at the SEMA Show, and several of its brands were also featured including ARIES®, LUVERNE®, CURT®, Ranch Hand®, and UWS®. A LUVERNE product and three CURT products were the recipients of the awards earned at the show.
The LUVERNE Impact shock-absorbing rear bumper step and CURT GM Multi-Pro / Multi-Flex Tailgate Saver were two of the winners of the 2021 New Product award. More than 1,300 products were submitted, and CURT and LUVERNE earned two of the winning spots. The Impact bumper features a reinforced heavy-wall steel tube construction that provides superior protection for work vans by absorbing rear impact up to 5 mph. The GM Multi-Pro / Multi-Flex Tailgate Saver is designed to save Chevrolet / GMC truck tailgates from costly damage by working in sync with the trucks’ electronics to prevent the tailgate from folding down and being damaged by the hitch accessory. Both products are engineered to take innovative steps forward in tailgate and rear bumper step technology.
CURT’s QuickPin Coupler and Echo® under-dash trailer brake controller were the recipients of two of the 2021 Global Media awards, which were selected through the votes of a panel of international journalists. The QuickPin Coupler features an innovative design that allows for quick coupling with just one 1/2” hitch pin: a revolutionary design that is unlike any similar products on the market. It was engineered to operate without a latch to make trailer hookup as simple as possible – so coupling the trailer is as easy as dropping the trailer tongue onto the ball and sliding in the pin, ultimately saving time and avoiding hassle. The Echo® trailer brake controller plugs into a vehicle and wirelessly connects to the user’s smartphone, allowing them to control and monitor all trailer brake activity right from their own device. It comes with a customizable app for Apple or Android.
