Honourable Mention
The AKS 3004 is an anti-lurch coupling for caravans and utility trailers that improves safety while driving. It works like this: once the coupling is engaged, an ergonomically optimised stabilisation lever is pressed downwards. This pushes friction linings onto the trailer ball, ensuring a constant and predictable handling of the trailer. The coupling features a dynamic shape, and the front side is equipped with a soft dock to protect the vehicle against scratches when hitching the trailer.
