Curt, a supplier of a complete line of towing products and manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, launched an all-new towing solution for the GMC MultiPro and Chevrolet Multi-Flex tailgates. The solution requires no wire cutting or splicing on the truck. Instead, it uses a factory-style wiring harness to plug into OEM sockets.

The new Curt protective tailgate sensor helps prevent costly and unnecessary damage to the new GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado tailgates. Once installed, it prevents the inner tailgate panel from dropping down while a ball mount or other towing accessory is installed in the receiver, according to the manufacturer. It allows for full use of the truck’s cargo and towing capabilities without risking an expensive repair.

The Curt tailgate sensor is engineered for an easy, no-splice installation, while retaining full use of the truck’s hitch. The sensor includes a vehicle-specific wiring harness to plug into the factory connectors, and it requires no additional electronics or batteries to operate. The Curt sensor can be used with virtually any ball mount that fits the receiver tube. It also functions as a hitch cap to protect the receiver when not in use.

The Curtprotective MultiPro/Multi-Flex tailgate sensor will be available in standard 2-inch (#58265) and 2-1/2-inch (#58266) options. Parts are available for pre-order today and are set to be in stock near the end of December 2020.
