Brooksville, Fla.—August 30, 2013. AME International, a global tool and equipment manufacturer, and inventor Vern Schroeder joined forces to introduce the Hitch Hermit, a safe, convenient and affordable hitch storage system designed to store and harbor removable hitches.
AME International manufactures products and equipment for tire and wheel service, including a complete range of OTR tire and tire-related accessories and equipment. Rob Henwood, AME’s heavy duty sales manager, values the Hitch Hermit’s convenience and benefits all who drive vehicles with hitches.
“The Hitch Hermit is a convenient way to store your hitch when you’re not towing,” said Henwood. “It’s great for vehicles in states with laws requiring that hitches cannot protrude past bumpers when not towing.”
Ball hitches left in the back of a truck bed or SUV often become a projectile during an accident. AME’s Hitch Hermit prevents these accidents by securely storing the hitch under the vehicle when not in use. The Hitch Hermit also prevents individuals from walking into hitches left on trucks.
The Hitch Hermit also reduces the risk of theft and vandalism and saves users the time and frustration of looking for ball hitches and pins.
“I have owned a pickup truck for as long as I can remember,” said Schroeder. “After losing tons of ball hitches, bruising my shin countless times, one trip to the hospital for stitches, and having to continually warn children not to run around my truck, I decided to end this troublesome agony.”
AME’s president, Keith Jarman, is excited to add the Hitch Hermit to AME’s product list.
“The Hitch Hermit is something that we haven’t offered before,” said Jarman. “This [Hitch Hermit] allows us to extend our efforts to reach truck/SUV owners in general. We now have a little something for everyone.”
