LAS VEGAS, NV (11.08.2013) – The 2013 SEMA Show is in full swing and nowhere is there more innovation than in the New Products Showcase, which features more than 2,000 of the newest, most cutting-edge automotive products.

While many of these entries are aimed at enthusiasts, some appeal to the wider market of hundreds of millions of car owners who rely on their vehicles to fulfill their daily personal or professional needs.

Products like the McHitch Automatic Trailer Coupler, which takes the hassle out of hooking up trailers by making it a safe and easy one-person procedure.

For those who like to keep their cars clean but get frustrated when excess water in the side mirrors blows out and leaves water spots down the side of the car there’s The Mirror Drip Catch from TFP. By pushing the special material behind the mirror, excess water is absorbed before it can spray out and ruin a perfectly good cleaning.
