Description

A relaxing journey with the caravan

The AKS™ 1300 safety coupling noticeably and effectively suppresses snaking and pitching movements of the trailer – up to 1,360 kg total weight. The car and caravan can be stabilised more quickly in an emergency situation. The ride remains smooth and safe.

Our tip: To protect the AKS™ we recommend the weatherproof, breathable and colourfast weather guard. 

Your advantage:

Safety

  • Snaking or pitching movements are effectively suppressed before they become serious.
  • Relaxed and comfortable towing.
  • The caravan can be stabilised more quickly in an emergency situation.
  • Safety indicator shows whether the AKS™ is correctly seated on the ball.
  • Anti-theft device can easily be retrofitted.
  • Increases the critical vehicle speed (observe the legal speed limit).
  • Complies with ISO 11555-1 (100 km/h permit possible).

How it works

  • Activating the stabilisation handle presses two friction pads against the car's towball from the left and right.
  • The coupling and stabilisation handles are separate from one another, and each can be operated with one hand.
  • No complicated additional securing devices.
  • The AKS™ 1300 does not have to be entered in the trailer's papers in Germany.
  • Constant control of the friction linings, towball and coupling mechanism by wear control.

FAQ

The AKS™ 1300 fits almost all caravans. Please check the dimensions shown in the drawing in the technical data and pay attention to the total permitted weight (1,360 kg).

 

The AKS™ can easily be re-used on your next caravan (please note the permitted total weight of 1,360 kg). Simply replace the supplied coupling.

 

In some vehicles the towbar is coated with protective paint when new. Please remove the protective paint from the towball (using emery cloth and brake cleaner) before attaching the AKS™ for the first time.

 

If the pads are badly contaminated they should be replaced, particularly if greasy. If the contamination is light, from diesel fumes or a thin coat of paint it may be possible to clean with emery paper and brake cleaner.

 

The AKS™ 1300 is not faulty and can still be used without problem. To reduce the noise try cleaning the friction pads with emery paper and brake cleaner. Alternatively, please contact your dealer who will gladly help you.
