LAS VEGAS, Nev. and TULARE, Ca. – November 2, 2011 – EZ Connector Inc., developer and manufacturer of high-performance products for improving the safety and reliability of electrical trailer and towing connections, today announced that its EZ Self-Closing 7-Pin (EZS7-02) electrical towing connection system won a New Products Showcase Award from SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association, at the 2011 SEMA Show, being held this week in Las Vegas. The EZS7-02 was the winning product in the Best New Van/Pickup/Sport-Utility Product category, and is being shown in Booth #32170 at the Las Vegas Convention Center through November 4, 2011.


The SEMA New Products Showcase recognizes the most cutting-edge automotive products either on the market or about to hit the market. This year, nearly 2,000 new products were submitted for consideration.  Criteria that ranked high on the judges' selection for the New Product Showcase Awards included superiority of innovation, technical achievement, quality and workmanship, consumer appeal and marketability. 


EZ Connector’s EZS7-02 electrical connection system is designed as a plug-and-play solution that leverages the innovative, patented design of the company’s EZR7, including face-to-face spring-loaded contacts, o-ring seals and magnetic hold.  The EZS7 features a new self-sealing cover to keep salt water and contaminants out.  Plus, the EZS7 is backward compatible with the EZR7, as well as to legacy connectors via EZ Connector’s 4-, 6- and 7-pin adapters for easy conversion. At only 2 ¼ inches deep, installation in the sidewall of fleet vehicles for 5th wheel and gooseneck applications is much easier.  The storage holder that mounts on the trailer to keep the plug clean when not in use, also has a self-closing cover to keep it contaminant-free while traveling on the road. 

“EZ Connector’s EZS7-02 is a great example of the industry’s innovation and technical achievement. Our judging committee selected EZ Connector’s EZS7-02 as a stand-out product from among many other products debuting at the SEMA Show,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP ov Events and Communications. “We are pleased to recognize EZ Connector with this award.”

“We are honored that SEMA has recognized our EZS7-02 as a winner in its New Products Showcase,” said Joe Cardoza, president of EZ Connector. “This award is a testament to the innovate design and advanced features of our EZS7-02. The user-friendly features and a water-proof, corrosion-proof design are what make our products ideal for a variety of commercial and recreational applications.”
