The Motor Vehicle Act of 2018 requires sellers and manufacturers to test equipment sold in Australia.

The CRN on the Invoice is your guarantee of compliance with D.O.T. regulations.

For example, 10t Gooseneck coupling and heavy-duty tow ball are tested.  Therefore, D-Value and V-Value satisfy your engineer’s inspection requirements.

Pintle Hook Damage

Pintle hooks undergo rigorous testing to ensure manufacturing integrity.

As a result of extensive testing, we found that pintle hook damage, is caused for a variety of driver errors, they include

  • Reversing into the ring coupling causing twisting or breakage of the top locking mechanism.
  • Reversing at sharp angles causing the bottom of the hook to bend.
  • Coupling head weight in excess of 7%.

It is a great idea before installing a new coupling is to weigh your rig on a weighbridge. Disconnect the trailer to obtain the trailer weight. The trailer can then be configured to the correct head weight.

Vehicle Inspections

If there is any question from your engineer or Vehicle Inspection Officer, show the officer your invoice or call our sales team with your inquiry.

Furthermore, the Inspection Officer may need to copy your invoice to follow up non-compliant equipment. The easiest way to copy an Invoice is to take a photo with your mobile phone.

Finally, a range of towing protective covers to suit Anderson Plugs is now available.
