Capture Plates

A Capture Plate is a required component of the SuperGlide fifth wheel towing system. 

This plate is attached to your trailer's skid plate.  When you're hooked up into your SuperGlide hitch and ready to tow, it isolates the rotation of your trailer's king pin in the hitch.  Movement and rotation is then transferred to the automatic cam action of your SuperGlide hitch, moving it away from the cab along its rails to prevent the trailer from contacting the cab of your truck!  

We have created specific Quick Connect Capture Plates for your trailer's king pin box.  Most applications slip over the king pin and are held in place by a set screw; quick install and removal for your convenience.  For correct fit information, click here.  And, of course, if you have any questions, please call our Customer Service Department at (800) 443-2307.
