ABOUT DITCH HITCH®
The Ditch Hitch® is the only vehicle recovery system on the market certified by a Professional Engineer to be shock loaded. Used in conjunction with nylon recovery straps with eyelets, no metal fixtures, the Ditch Hitch eliminates the use of chains, slings with tail chains, tow ropes with hooks, shackles, trailer balls and pintle hitches etc. These items were never intended to withstand shock load forces. The Ditch Hitch System is fast becoming the industry standard for safe vehicle recovery. Some Ditch Hitch customers include Encana Corp., Husky Energy, Shell Canada and Nexen Inc. All companies that utilize the Ditch Hitch System have eliminated vehicle recovery incidents.
The Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation has been recognizing and supporting Canadian innovators of all ages since 1982. Canadians who have demonstrated recent innovative talent and successfully marketed their innovations may be eligible for one of four Awards from the $100,000 Principal Award to the $10,000 Innovation Award. Winners will be announced this fall.
