DuraSafe Locks Inc. launched three new and innovative lock products within the last year that resulted in a national award and a 200 percent growth spurt for the company.

Couple-Mate Self-Aligning Trailer Hitch Guide
Launched by DuraSafe last fall, the Couple-Mate was developed in Australia by Impulse Marine. Customers can back their trailer coupler directly over their hitch ball by placing the winged guide around the ball. No more scratches or getting out of the tow vehicle to make sure everything is aligned. The product has a retail price of $39 to $49.

T-Rex Transom Saver
with Prop Lock
The T-Rex was launched in June. The device is a combination transom saver and propeller lock that stabilizes the outboard while a boat is being towed and prevents theft of both the propeller and transom saver. The T-Rex was developed by DuraSafe and is the only transom saver that is available with a propeller lock. Don Frantz, president of DuraSafe, developed and obtained the patent for the product, which has a retail price of $59 to $69.

Marine Electronics Lock
DuraSafe launched the Marine Electronics Lock in March. The lock replaces the factory knob on brackets for electronics such as fish-finders, global positioning systems (GPS) and depth-finders to deter theft. The lock acts as a knob, but when locked,
spins freely. Because screw lengths and widths for electronics vary by manufacturer, DuraSafe offers nine different sizes. DuraSafe is preparing to launch a Marine Electronics Locks line for very high frequency (VHF) marine radios in three different sizes. The system was developed and patented by Frantz. The product has a retail price of $14.99 to $16.99.
