Sorry, my old eyes can't read that small print and blowing it up doesn't help either.

Same with my eyes BUT that sure looks like a claymore bumper hitch to me. Those who know what it is will sure stay clear.

Think I'll put a pair on each side as well and one on the rear of the trailer.

The 20mm canon works fine on the front.

I have found that my exhaust brake works quite well (it doesn't turn stop light on). When they realize your brake lights don't come on (especially @ slower speeds & lower gears) they back right off.

Cute, but I serious doubt if it would have any effect on most of the tailgaters on me even if really went off. Most of them are too busy talking on the cell phone to even recognize the car in front of them, let alone the hitch cover.

The real tailgater deterrent would be a rear facing harpoon that you could fire through their radiator. I just don't see how anything short of that is going to have any effect.

Don't know.. We do have a generation of people today who, for the most part, have never seen one of those... I only know what it is cause I read a lot.. I mean A LOT. I've never seen one for real.

You don't want to see a real one---will do ALOT of damage--was good to have at times though.
