Karl Pratt of Granbury and the newly formed business, Safety Sentry Inc., is the inventor/owner of a Safety Device that will prevent your trailer from becoming detached while towing all types of trailers. Whether it be for work or pleasure or for Class 2 and up to Class 5 hitch applications, it keeps your trailer and vehicle together throughout your journey. Also included is a Locking Safety Device (Theft Deterrent) that allows you peace of mind while leaving your vehicle and trailer unattended for extended periods of time. We have a Safety Sentry product for all types of trailer applications from the smallest of utility trailer to the largest bumper pull RV Camper, Boat Trailers, and Horse Trailers as well as for your Commercial Trucks & Trailers that you leave at the job site. In June, he plans to market a Safety Sentry locking device for gooseneck trailers.
When boating in Lake Lewisville several years ago, he prepared to back up his pickup and trailer for loading but found that his trailer was missing. It was a custom-built one so not easily replaced. He had to pay for a docking slip, insurance deductible, and of course, a new trailer - a very expensive day at the lake. As a result of this misadventure, he decided to design something that would prevent this from happening again. He built a few for friends and associates but that was as far as it went back then.
Just recently he was inspired to update the design of the Safety Sentry for the added protection of lives as well as for the protection of property that was very affordable for the working man and without any costly modifications to existing trailer hitches. He did his due diligence in researching the facts about accidents due to disengagement of trailers, the injuries and those resulting in death of innocent victims, the number of reported thefts, obtained a patent, and built the current prototype in his garage. He’s been building a business and giving opportunities to protect life and property from there ever since.
In seven weeks he has expanded the marketing of his safety and security device from coast to coast, border to border, and beyond. The wonders of “word of mouth” and the internet! Hits on the website include viewers from Great Britain, South Africa, and Canada. www.DangerousTrailers.com compiles all the news reports of accidents related to trailer disengagement and communicates almost daily with Karl. Well-known trailer rental companies who reportedly lose about 4% of their trailers due to theft and another 4% due to unsafe practices have shown interest. In addition a lawsuit was just settled for 8.6 million dollars when a coupler device failed while in tow.
The Texas Department of Transportation, the Department of Public Safety, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are aware of the potential for saving lives and protecting property on the highways through the use of the Safety Sentry. Efforts are underway to elicit vehicle insurance reductions if Safety Sentry is used for trailer safety.
