EZ Connector S77
This company makes electrical towing connections, including this new system. Like others the company makes, this one is waterproof, corrosion-free, and has a breakaway design. The new S77 also incorporates camera circuits in the same connector, so older trucks can use an aftermarket camera on the back of a trailer. It works with 2000-and-newer Fords and GMs, plus newer Dodge/Ram, Toyota, and Nissan trucks. Also available are T-connector versions for fifth-wheels and goosenecks. It uses neodymium magnets to hold the plug and socket together, not a latch.
