luverne-new_tow_guard_pr-1Brandon, S.D.-based LUVERNE Truck Equipment, an American manufacturer of truck, SUV and work van accessories since 1963, has unveiled a brand new product in its mud guard and splash guard line: the Textured Rubber Tow Guard.

According to a press release, the tow guard is a protective trailer hitch attachment that mounts at the rear of the vehicle and shields a trailer in tow against mud, stones and other road debris. It features a universal design, simple use-as-needed installation and is made in the U.S.

The tow guard offers full protection for the trailer by creating a barrier at the rear of the tow vehicle. Spanning the full width of the vehicle, it easily deflects road debris that is kicked up by the vehicle’s tires. The tow guard also features powder-coated steel and 3/8-inch thick rubber flaps to protect the trailer against nicks, scratches and other unsightly damage.

The product is designed for fast, easy installation. It comes fully factory and can be installed or removed as necessary, using a heavy-duty U-bolt. It attaches directly to the ball mount shank and maintains full use of the hitch and any electrical components.

The LUVERNE Tow Guard is available in a universal width of 72 inches to fit most full-size pickups and SUVs. It also comes in two flap length options, including 15 inches and 20 inches, and can be trimmed for a custom fit. Models are available to fit 2-, 2 1/2- or 3-inch receiver tubes.
