T he 2018 NATDA Trade Show & Convention brought over 500 dealerships to Indianapolis, Indiana. This year’s New Product Display sponsored by TRAIL-A-WAY had more attention than any other NATDA show. Its thirty participants, ranging from bungee systems to tire pressure monitoring systems, did not disappoint, either. Another first-time exhibitor, Eagle Hydraulic, took second place for its Super Capacitor, a battery capable of handling up to three full dumps at full charge. Filling out the award winners was Gen-Y Hitch’s Channel Mount Torsion Hitch, which marks the company’s third consecutive year that it has finished the NATDA Trade Show & Convention with an award. While experienced and lauded companies were in the running for the NATDA’s awards for best new products of the year, it was first-time exhibitor Link Lock that took home the first-place prize. Link Lock is a patent-pending trailer chain attachment system that allows trailer owners to adjust their safety chains to fit any vehicle. Thank you to everyone who participated in voting! 40 1st Place – Link Lock (Link Lock) 2nd Place – Eagle Hydraulic (Super Capacitor) 3rd Place – Gen-Y Hitch (Channel Mount Torsion Hitch) continued on page 42 NATDA Magazine
