Innovative BetterWeigh™ Wins Best New Product Award at SEMA 2019

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - CURT, supplier of a complete line of towing products and the leading manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, won the Best New Product Award at the 2019 SEMA show in Las Vegas for its innovative new BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale.

The smartphone-compatible, Bluetooth-enabled device was entered in the Exterior Accessories category for this year’s SEMA New Product Showcase. On Tuesday, November 5, at the SEMA New Product Breakfast, the BetterWeigh™ was announced as the winner.

This now-award-winning product is a revolutionary new towing scale for the smartphone age. It simply plugs into your vehicle’s OBD-II diagnostic port and wirelessly pairs with your Apple or Android phone. Then, using TowSense™ Technology, it displays the weights of your vehicle and trailer, cargo, tongue weight, pin weight and weight distribution. The BetterWeigh™ also calculates trailer brake gain for streamlined brake controller setup.

“We are extremely honored to win this award,” said Jesse Bauer, Director of Product for CURT Group. “CURT aspires to lead the towing and electrical accessory aftermarket industry in innovation and quality. This SEMA new product award is an affirmation that we're on the right track with our focus on new product development. It's been a team effort, and we're excited to introduce the BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale along with many of our other innovative products in 2019 and beyond.”

The BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale #51701 is expected to launch December 2019.
