AL-KO ATC system

The biggest innovation in caravan safety in recent years, the AL-KO ATC Trailer Control System is an emergency system which automatically applies the caravan brakes when instability is identified, safeguarding against many critical driving conditions, providing unparalleled level of assurance for caravan owners. This comprehensive video explains the theory and testing behind this innovative technology.

AL-KO and Milenco Hitch Locks

Hitch locks are an effective way of securing your caravan and preventing opportunist theft. Designed to lock over the coupling handle, and still enabling the stabiliser handle to be lowered, the hitch lock can be fixed in place when your caravan and tow vehicle are parked but connected (never travel with the hitch lock in place as this could hamper the emergency services in the event of an accident). When not coupled up, insert the safety ball within the coupling head before applying the hitch lock to prevent the caravan from being coupled to another vehicle. Al-Ko and Milenco are 2 of the most common hitch locks, both of which are recognised by most insurance companies and should entitle you to a discount on your insurance premium (most insurance companies insist on you using a hitch lock when the caravan is not hitched to your car).
See them in use in these videos.

AL-KO Wheel Lock

One of the most effective theft prevention devices on the market, the AL-KO Secure Wheel Lock attaches to the receiver, visible through the alloy spokes, which is permanently fixed to the wheel brake, to help protect against the theft of your caravan. With a wide variety of unique security features, the AL-KO Secure Wheel Lock is approved to Sold Secure Diamond Standard. Piran Top Tip: use a side jack when fitting to a twin axle caravan, to raise the wheels off the ground and enable lining up of the wheel and the receiver.
