Brake Controls

Why do you need Brake Controls?

We have several electric brake controllers, one or more of which are designed to meet your unique requirements for operational control, weight class, hauling vehicle capabilities, or other factors.

CURT Manufacturing

The CURT Brake Controls.

CURT Trailer Hitches – The FIRST Name In Towing Products. CURT takes pride in offering the widest selection of custom fit trailer hitches, fitting more vehicles in operation than any other trailer hitch manufacturer in North America. CURT’s focus on our customers has lead us to create the easiest to install, best looking trailer hitches made in America.

CURT Manufacturing focuses on being first-to-market with our new custom fit trailer hitch designs. CURT's high-quality powder coat finish is applied after sending welded hitches through multiple stages, including a shot blast, wash and preparation system creating a smooth, clean surface. Each trailer hitch is also dipped in liquid A-coat before it receives the powder coat finish. The two coatings cure together in the finishing oven providing the most rust and chip resistant hitch available.


Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches & Towing Accessories

Brake Controls - Draw-Tite

Draw-Tite is your one-stop source for electric brake controllers. Draw-Tite manufactures several electric brake controllers, one or more of which are designed to meet your unique requirements for operational control, weight class, hauling vehicle capabilities, or other factors. Draw-Tite electric trailer brake controllers are electronic devices that supply power from the tow vehicle to the trailer's electric brakes. Many styles of electric brake controllers are available that differ in how they look, and the number of brakes they can power, but all of them can be assigned to one of two main groups, Proportional Brake Controllers, or Time Delayed Brake Controllers.

Timed Brake Controllers

Draw-Tite Timed Brake Controllers are great choices for your basic, economical, and light-duty towing needs. These time-actuated controls have solid state electronics and can be mounted in any position - horizontal, vertical, even turned upside down. With a Timed (sometimes referred to as Time Delayed (or solid state)) brake controller, when you step on the vehicle brakes, a predetermined amount of braking power is sent to the trailer and then there is a delay as the unit ramps up to full braking power. A couple of major benefits of timed brake controllers are quick and easy installation, and its ability to easily integrate with the late-model OEM wiring harness under your vehicle’s dash.

Proportional Brake Controllers

Proportional-based controls offer a smooth braking response to almost any stop. Through the use of a sensing device, the brake control can determine the tow vehicle's rate of deceleration and then apply the trailer brakes to match. In other words, Proportional Brake Controls deliver power to the trailer brakes in direct relationship to the actual physical deceleration of the tow vehicle. Put another way, a proportional (or pendulum) brake controller senses how quickly the tow vehicle is stopping and applies the same amount of braking power to the trailer.

The benefits of a proportional brake controller are similar to those of a timed brake controller. Quick, easy installation reduces brake control install time. Proportional brake controllers also integrate easily with the OEM wiring harness installed in later model vehicles. An added benefit with Proportional Brake Controllers is when properly adjusted, the trailer will decelerate at the same rate as the tow vehicle, increasing braking efficiency and reducing brake wear.

Breakaway Kits

When discussing Draw-Tite Electric Brake Controllers, it is necessary to understand Breakaway Kits. These are designed to apply the trailer’s electric brakes in the event that the trailer becomes disconnected from the hitch while in motion. They are required in many States/Provinces.
