  • Useful Towing Accessories

    There are quite a few inexpensive accessories that can make towing simpler and more hassle-free. Hitch aligners and interchangeable hitch balls can save time, and hitch lock boxes offer an additional way to use receivers. All three provide an economical way to get more out of your existing towing accessories!

    The Valley Hitch Aligner is a hitching aid for all kinds of trailers, including fifth wheel and gooseneck trailers. It quickly lines up your trailer without assistance, using heavy-duty magnets to attach the trailer and the hitch. With this accessory, you can get it right on the first try and avoid the annoyance of having to exit and reenter your vehicle multiple times to check on the alignment. This hitch aligner extends up to 42-inches and collapses down to 13.5-inches for easy storage. It has a nice chrome finish that resists rust and corrosion.

    With Valley's Adapt Hitch Ball Sets, you can change your trailer hitch ball size in seconds, without the use of any tools! They also feature a new design that keeps the pin inside the ball so that it can''t be lost. These sets have either two or three chrome balls with 1-7/8-inch, 2-inch, or 2-5/16-inch diameters. Shank diameters are .75-inch or 1-inch and shank lengths are 2-3/16-inch, 2.25-inch, or 3.25-inch. All sets have an 8,000 lb. gross load rating.

    The HitchSafe Lock Box System provides a safe and convenient place to store small items like keys or extra money. The lock box secures inside a 2-inch receiver and is retained by two hitch pins. It is easy to install and even easier to use, with the ability to choose your own combination. The box is made entirely of metal for extra durability and a rubber dust cover for the combination dials is included.

  • Get Your Truck Bed Organized

    Your pickup truck bed is meant for hauling cargo: tools, work gear, sports equipment, even groceries, your truck can (and does) carry it all. To get everything transported safely, securely and in a more orderly fashion, check out these great Truck Bed Organizer accessories. Highland's Cargo Bar is a universal bar that is available in three different styles. All three are designed for easy installation, prevent the shifting of cargo, and feature rubber end pads to hold bars in place without scratching your vehicle. The standard cargo bar adjusts from 40-inches up to 74-inches with just a twist. The ratcheting cargo bar adjusts from 40-inches up to 70-inches using a ratchet system to provide the right tensioning needed to secure heavy-duty loads. The cargo bar with net adjusts from 40-inches to 74-inches and features a cargo net that hangs down from the bar to keep smaller items securely stored.

    Loading Zone's Truck Bed Cargo Gate is a great accessory for securing cargo in your truck's bed. It features heavy-duty side brackets that allow the gate to be positioned anywhere along the truck bed. It has three horizontal bars separated by metal gridding, which cover a much wider area than a single bar. The grid holds the cargo securely while letting air flow through, and preventing more malleable objects from sliding through the open spaces between the bars. This cargo gate requires no additional assembly or mounting and is very easy to use: just lift, lock,and load! Multiple gates can be used to divide your truck bed into sections,keeping heavier items from mixing with (and wrecking!) more fragile cargo, or for easier organization. These cargo gates are made from non-corrosive aluminum and stainless steel and fit a variety of trucks, as well as some van and SUV models.

    Highland's Truck Cargo Net covers the area of your pickup truck bed, preventing cargo from falling out due to high speeds or quick stops. The net is very easy to install and holds up under extreme weather conditions. Some shifting of cargo may still occur, but rest assured that all cargo will stay safely contained in your pickup bed. The Deluxe model is 60-inches by 78-inches and has wide netting to prevent cargo from becoming tangled in the net. The Heavy-Duty model has a tighter woven net with smaller holes, adjustable straps that allow for a tighter fit, and an adjustable end section that folds up to fit shorter truck beds.

  • Hitch Steps Give an Extra Boost

    Hitch Steps are useful accessories that provide more access to some hard-to-reach parts of your vehicle. On trucks, hitch steps allow easier access to the truck bed and can also aid in the loading and removing of ladders from ladder racks. On SUVs and cars, they make cargo carriers, bike racks, and other roof-mounted accessories more reachable. Hitch steps can also be a great help when washing and waxing your vehicle, as you can cover more space, especially on roofs and upper windows. Phoenix's 3 Point Hitch Step is a great addition for any truck. It mounts virtually anywhere, and is especially suited for corners. It's movable, holding position at 0°, 90°, and 180°, so you can choose the right step up angle for your particular needs. The step also rotates out of the way,staying hidden underneath the truck bed when not in use.

    Go Rhino Xtreme Hitch Steps not only give you an extra step,they also alert you when your vehicle's rear gets too close to another vehicle or other object.

  • Keep April Showers Out with Window Visors

    Window visors, vent visors, wind guards, Rain Guards, all these names refer to the same product. They mount above your vehicle's side windows, allowing windows to stay open, and increasing cabin comfort. They are useful to have in inclement weather, as the visor will block the rain from entering your vehicle. On a muggy day or on a long drive, it's great to be able to let a little fresh air in while keeping your car or truck protected from rain. You can also keep your windows cracked when leaving your vehicle parked, reducing heat build-up. The visor blocks the open window from sight, so your auto won't be an easy target for thieves. Visors also reduce glare from the sun, providing a more enjoyable and safer driving experience. All of these benefits from one simple accessory: whether you call them rain guards or vent visors, they are definitely a worthwhile addition to your vehicle!

They are a dark smoke color, which looks great on all vehicles, or for a more streamlined look, they can be painted to match the factory color of your auto or truck.

    For a different look, try a gleaming Chrome Window Visor. These AVS visors have the original Ventvisor design with a shiny upgrade.
