NARVA's 'Quickfit' Trailer Connectors Simplify Fitting

A re-design of the popular NARVA flat 7-pin trailer plug and socket is being hailed as a major step forward in simplifying trailer wiring and assembly.

The new ‘Quickfit’ connector design, which is just being introduced to New Zealand, utilises a threaded cap that can be simply unscrewed by hand allowing the top and bottom outer casings to separate to provide ease of access for wiring up. Also assisting the wiring process for both the plug and socket are clear, convenient circuit identification markings found within each unit.

The unit benefits from excellent sealing to protect against the ingress of dust, grime and moisture through use of a rubber grommet between the upper and lower casings, which is held in place by the threaded end cap. It also has four locking pins that secure the top and bottom parts of the connector, for a sturdier fit.

NARVA has retained the use of a screw-down clamp inside the plug to securely hold the cable in place should anyone pull on the wires. Another advantage is the use of brass screws that allow either a flat head or Phillips screwdriver to be used.

The new ‘Quickfit’ trailer connectors are manufactured to the highest standard using quality ABS housings and nickel plated brass terminals. Suitable for all trailers running a 7-pin wiring system, both the plug and socket comply with all relevant ADR regulations.

Available from leading automotive outlets throughout New Zealand, the new 7-pin NARVA ‘Quickfit’ trailer plugs and sockets come in attractive clam shell blisters or 20-piece bulk packs. The part numbers for the individual blister packs are – Socket; Part No. 82141BL and the Plug: Part No. 82042BL. For bulk pack part numbers simply substitute BL with /20.
