EZ Connector Inc. (www.ezconnector.com), developer and manufacturer of high-performance products for improving the safety and reliability of electrical trailer and towing connections, has been awarded first place for “Best New Product of the Year” by the North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA).

EZ Connector’s EZ Recreational 7-Pin (EZR7) electrical towing connection system was recognized recently during the annual NATDA convention held in Louisville, Ky., according to a release from the company.

The EZR7 electrical connection system ensures that electrical components such as lights and brakes work every time a trailer or other equipment is towed. Available in several models including traditional and fifth-wheel versions, the EZR7 is designed as a universal configuration that can adapt to a variety of applications.

EZ Connector’s EZR7 was selected from more than 30 new products entered into this year’s competition. The products were voted on by a panel of judges from the trailer dealer industry.

“Our esteemed group of judges — all who know the ins and outs of trailers and towing products — found EZ Connector’s EZR7 to be a stand-out product based on its innovative and high-quality design, as well as its ease of use and safety features,” said Andy Ackerman, president of NATDA. “We believe that EZ Connector’s products are complementary to the high-quality trailers that our members are selling to consumers and businesses across the continent.”

“We are honored that the NATDA recognized us with its ‘Best New Product of the Year’ award, and believe that this award is a testament to the due diligence that our team has spent researching, designing and manufacturing innovative products for the light- and medium-duty trailer industry,” said Joe Cardoza, president of EZ Connector. “EZ Connector’s products give trailer owners and operators the added assurance they need that their important cargo is always safe. This safety assurance, coupled with user-friendly features and a water-proof, corrosion-proof design, are what make our products ideal for a variety of commercial and recreational applications.”
