About

Hello Kickstarter! We're excited to introduce you to the 3D Hitch Cover. Are you one of those people who like to display their school’s allegiance on the back of your ride? Then the 3D Hitch Cover is right for you. Light up your truck or SUV !

What is 3D Hitch Cover?

It is a programmable 3 Digit Alphanumeric LED display designed for your automobile hitch receiver. The 3D Hitch Cover is designed with three super bright one inch tall alphanumeric LEDs. Once installed the 3D Hitch cover will illuminate and sequence every time you press your brakes. The sequence and speed of the LEDs are controlled by a Microcontroller .

The 3D Hitch cover is designed to match the dimensions of a standard 3”x 3” hitch cover.

3D Hitch Cover is patent pending.

Installation

Just tell us the 2 to 3 characters that you would like on your 3D Hitch Cover to display.

No programming needed!

Installs in seconds, easily plugs into your existing trailer hitch receiver.

Heavy-gauge wiring with plug-in, flat-four hitch connector.

Just plug in and go.

Risks and challenges

The only item that is not available is the red transparent lens cover. The current lens covers were fabricated by a local plastic supplier. We need Kickstarter funding to procure a snap-in transparent lens. Custom plastic injection molding can cost thousands of dollars.

The hitch assembly and circuit board will be assembled by a local board fabrication facility. We do not anticipate any roadblocks in bringing this product to mass-production.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Kickstarter project.

We appreciate your support.
