EZ Connector Unveils New Electrical Towing Connection System at Automotive
Aftermarket Products Expo’s (AAPEX)

LAS VEGAS and TULARE, Calif., Nov. 2, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EZ Connector Inc.
(www.ezconnector.com), developer and manufacturer of award-winning,
high-performance products for improving the safety and reliability of electrical
trailer and towing connections, today unveiled a new electrical towing
connection system at 2009 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX), November
3-5, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nev. EZ Connector’s new EZ Self-Closing 7-Pin (EZS7)
brings together the high-quality, high-performance features of the company’s
award-winning EZ Recreational 7-Pin (EZR7) electrical towing connection system
— all in a more compact, plug-and-play design. EZ Connector will be conducting
live demonstrations of its water- and corrosion-proof electrical connection
system and adapters in Booth #1034 at the Sands Expo Center.

Like the EZR7, the new EZS7 ensures that electrical components such as lights
and brakes work every time a trailer or other equipment is towed. Available in
several models for bumper and fifth-wheel installations, the EZS7 is designed as
a universal configuration that can adapt to a variety of applications.

The new EZS7 is easier to install than the flagship EZR7 product since no
drilling is required to mount into the existing holes of Ford trucks.
Easy-to-install clips are provided to attach to GM and newer Ford vehicles with
no drilling required. A watertight plug on the back of the connector plugs
directly into the vehicle wiring harness for a no-fault connection. In addition,
the newer system includes a shorter socket, allowing for easier mounting on the
inside wall of the truck bed, which is particularly beneficial for fifth-wheel
applications. EZ Connector has also integrated an attractive self-closing lid,
thus eliminating the need for a dummy plug to keep out harmful elements.

“With our new EZS7, we have taken all of the high-quality, safety and
performance features of our flagship electrical towing connection system,
including a water-proof and corrosion-proof design, and made it even more
user-friendly from an installation perspective,” said Joe Cardoza, president of
EZ Connector. “We believe that the EZS7’s easy installation features, as well as
its self-closing lid and shorter body, will appeal to a wider range of users. We
look forward to bringing the new EZS7 to market in 2010.”

Unlike the common blade plugs available in today’s market, the patented EZ
Connector products, including the new EZS7 and EZR7, use spring-loaded
face-to-face contacts so that drawbacks such as arcing and contact abrasion from
use are eliminated. The combination of spring-loaded pins and fixed contacts
also allows for electricity to easily pass from socket to plug, and mitigates
problems such as voltage drop due to increased contact deterioration and
corrosion, and the resulting failure of brakes and lights. In addition, EZ
Connector offers the industry’s only vehicle-trailer connector that has been
certified lab tested to the Society of Automotive Engineers standard for
waterproof and corrosion-resistance when in use, given its built-in double
o-ring seals. EZ Connector uses neodymium magnets to hold the plug and socket
together rather than a latch. The sheer strength of these magnets provides
additional support for keeping the plug and socket affixed in a variety of
situations including vibrations, abrupt movements and bumpy road conditions,
while allowing for both plug and socket to immediately release in case a user
forgets to disconnect the trailer from vehicle. EZ Connector also offers
backward-compatible male and female adapters designed to connect the EZR7/EZS7
to legacy 7-blade RV connectors, thus enabling users to take advantage of the
EZR7/EZS7’s many benefits while converting their vehicles and trailers.

EZ Connector’s new EZS7 will be commercially available in the first half of
2010. For more information, purchase locations and selling opportunities please
