The two most frequent vehicle
accidents are getting:
Hit While Parked and
The Rear End Collision.
In today's economy you have to protect yourself more than ever – even on the highway. And here's just a few reasons why:
The average insurance rate will rise 40% if you make a claim. You just can't afford to make a claim anymore. That's why your deductable is so high. And you can say to yourself; “Well, in a rear end collision the other guy will pay anyway.”
SORRYToday in the United States, over 15% of the drivers are uninsured and it's getting worse. In states like California it's over 25%! They won't pay at all! And in states with no-fault insurance, your insurance company could end up paying for both vehicles.
The rear end collision is actually on the rise. With all the distractions – cell phones, text messengers, MP3 players, CDs, drivers with poor judgement, including senior citizens and teens, no wonder 80% of all rear end collisions were caused by driver inattention.
Did you know that almost ½ of the drivers that hit you in the rear are not even slowing down! They just hit you square on. That's why you don't need something very big back there to protect yourself.
What Works and What Doesn't
According to the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety, for a bumper to work effectively, you need a strong enough bumper beam and something to absorb the crash energy.
If you're going to try to protect yourself with one of the current “hitch steps” on the market today; they are neither strong enough nor energy absorbing – they're for stepping on that that's it!
And trying to protect your vehicle with your ball mount? Any “fixed or static” receiver hitch product will transfer all of the impact energy directly to the occupants. There's NO give. They will not protect you or your family!
And you can forget about crumple zones. 75% of all rear end collisions are less than 10 mph and on frame railed vehicles, auto manufacturers don't want any “global buckling of the frame” at speeds less than 35 mph.
According to the Federal Bumper Standard, bumpers are supposed to protect the “safety” equipment – headlights, taillights, radiator, etc from damage. And we all know what kind of a job they do. So... what can you do? Well..
Now You Can Fight Back!

I found it attractively priced and very well made. The simplicity of the spring action is ingenious. Instructions were clear and precise and the installation was very easy; a valuable product! Thanks again for producing a great product.
