Ever have that nagging feeling that your king pin might not be locked into your fifth-wheel hitch? Use a BedSaver with your hitch, and it will catch your king pin if it comes out. Bolt it onto your hitch and tow as usual - with added peace of mind.
Applications: Husky or Valley 5th-wheel hitch - 15,000-lb capacity
Note: This model of BedSaver will not work with aftermarket pin boxes.
A dropped fifth wheel can happen to anyone. Even veteran towers have found themselves with crushed truck beds. It's often hard to see a king pin indicator in the dark, so you may not notice that your pin isn't locked in. If you hitch up by lowering your king pin into your hitch instead of backing straight into it, you may accidentally "high hitch." That means your king pin is sitting on top of the jaw or latch mechanism instead of locked into it. To avoid high hitching, always back straight into your hitch to connect your trailer and tow vehicle.
With a BedSaver, a dropped king pin will fall into the specially designed channel and catch in the slot, preventing your trailer from dropping onto your truck bed and crushing its side rails. The BedSaver easily bolts onto your fifth-wheel hitch where the legs attach to the hitch head, and the black powder coated steel construction resists rust and blends with the color of most hitches. And you don't have to change how you tow - hitch up and unhitch as usual.
The Blue Ox BedSaver is an economical way to prevent thousands of dollars in damage to your truck bed and to keep your fifth wheel from rolling into traffic. Anyone can have an accident, but using a BedSaver ensures that it won't be a costly one.
