Important of Trailer Brakeaway Kits

Breakaway kits are crucial safety devices required by law for caravans and trailers. These kits play a key role in the safety of both the vehicle towing the trailer and other road users.

A breakaway kit consists of a few key components:

  • Battery
  • Switch
  • Cable/lanyard

The battery is typically a rechargeable unit, and the switch is designed to activate when the trailer becomes detached from the towing vehicle. The cable or lanyard connects the switch to the towing vehicle.

What do Brakeaway Kits actually do?

If the trailer unexpectedly disconnects from the tow vehicle, the cable is pulled, activating the switch, which in turn powers the trailer’s brakes, bringing it to a controlled stop.

The purpose of a breakaway kit is to prevent a runaway trailer. In the event of a hitch failure or accidental disconnection, the breakaway kit ensures that the trailer will not continue to travel uncontrolled, causing accidents, property damage, or harm to others on the road.

Instead, the trailer’s brakes are applied, bringing it to a halt and reducing the risk of accidents.

Legal Trailer Brakeaway Kits Requirements

Compliance with breakaway kit regulations is essential for anyone towing a caravan or trailer exceeding 2,000 kilograms.

This legal requirement aims to safeguard public safety and reduce the potential hazards associated with large, heavy trailers becoming detached from their towing vehicles.
