Scorpion® Trailer Attenuator

NCHRP-350 Tested for all mandatory and optional offset tests.


  • Successfully NCHRP 350 tested for all mandatory and optional offset tests
  • Only Trailer Attenuator, tested and approved when attached to a 10,000 lb host vehicle(caution - forward roll of host vehicle was 64' when impacted by a 4,500 lb truck traveling at 63.5 mph)
  • Single point attachment to standard 20 Ton (minimum) rated pintle hook is quick and easy
  • Requires little or no modification to host vehicle or additional mounting hardware (1/2" thick x 32" wide minimum pintle hook mounting plate required)
  • Telescoping Anti-Rotational System (TARST) minimizes Scorpion Trailer rotation during angled impacts and prevents trailer separation from host vehicle
  • The Scorpion's proven modular design crushes in progressive stages allowing quick and economical replacement of damaged parts
  • The unique curved design gives full width protection to the back of the host vehicle and protects the "coffin corners" of the truck
  • Rear axle placement improves trailer stability and prevents the tail from "bottoming out" on driveways or uneven surfaces
  • Overall length of Scorpion Trailer Attenuator is only 17' 5" - the shortest on the market
  • Integrated electric brake system comes standard on Scorpion Trailer - brakes are automatically activated in the event of trailer separation or hitch failure
  • Available in a shorter (12' 7") lower speed TL-2 (45 mph) model, which is ideal for congested city streets or where posted speeds are 45 mph or less
  • Optional Arrow or Message Board can easily be attached to Scorpion Trailer Attenuator
