Roadsafe has produced limited edition pink and blue 4WD packs of soft shackle compliant alloy recovery hitches and soft shackles to raise funds for Beyond Blue and McGrath Foundation.
Roadsafe will donate $5 per blue unit sold to the Beyond Blue Support Service and $5 per pink unit sold to McGrath Foundation.
Simple to install to an adequately rated tow hitch receiver, the versatile hitches are designed to create a rated recovery attachment point on the rear of the vehicle to enable 4WD enthusiasts to perform safe rearward recoveries.
All hitches are capable of a 5,000-kilogram working load limit with the soft shackle rope spliced breaking strain load rated at 12,500 kilograms. All are anodised for long term reliability and dual drilled for ease of fitment and use. Suited to 50mm x 50mm hitch receivers, the units are also NATA tested locally to ensure total quality.
“We are delighted to be able to show our support for the vitally important work that both Beyond Blue and the McGrath Foundation provides to the Australian community through this Roadsafe 4WD initiative,” said Roadsafe general manager, Tania Allatt.
“We look forward to many 4WD enthusiasts across the country taking the opportunity to provide their support and to show it with the easy fitment of these limited-edition pink or blue Roadsafe 4WD hitches.”
Beyond Blue works with the community to improve mental health and prevent suicide. Its support service provides counselling, information, advice and referrals to people experiencing anxiety, depression and those with an increased risk of suicide. Last financial year, Beyond Blue supported more than 300,000 people via phone, web chat and email. Almost one in two adults in Australia will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime, with more than four million living with anxiety or depression.
The McGrath Foundation raises money to place specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses wherever they are needed across the country, while seeking to increase breast health understanding. Approximately 57 people are diagnosed with breast cancer every day across Australia and some 20,428 women and 212 men have been diagnosed over the past year.
This makes it the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia for women, with one in seven women being diagnosed during their lifetime. McGrath Breast Care Nurses have supported more than 118,000 Australian families since 2005.
