BRAKE CONTROL EXCELLENCE

Part#: 47297
Product Name: InSIGHT™ Flex-Mount™ Brake Control

I had this installed on my 2009 Ford F150. It replaced another brake controller that was under my steering wheel that was very
difficult to use. When I used my old brake control I had to take my eyes off the road to read it and it was even more distracting
if I wanted to apply trailer brakes manually. The InSight controller is much safer because it has a readout near my line-of-sight,
a manual control beside my steering wheel, and the power box is far enough under my dash that I never have to worry about
banging my knees on it. As a trailer brake control upgrade, this is great. I have been very pleased to have it! - F. Weltha

I have driven now almost 3000 miles with a Hopkins Agility Brake Control. The setup was easy and

adjustment was simple. I would recommend this to anyone towing and needing a brake controller. I have used several

other brake controllers and this one is superior. - N. CLAAR

TAILLIGHT CONVERTERS

Electronic taillight converters adapt an independent bulb taillight system of the
tow vehicle to the shared bulb taillight system of the trailer. If the brake light
and turn signals operate from separate bulbs on the tow vehicle, and the brake
light and turn signals operate from a shared bulb on the trailer, then a taillight
converter is required.
