Announcing: The Robert Bourassa Performance Voyage

Welcome back to the Blog!

We hope you've been having a great summer. It's been an interesting one here in Ontario, a wave of harsh heat and some of the most intense rain the province has ever seen. However, autumn is nearly here and we couldn't be happier to announce that once again, the Trailer Blocks team will be packing up and hitting the open road to enjoy the end of summer and to put our signature aluminum lift/lowering blocks to the test.

This long weekend, we'll be installing our lift blocks to our trailer and then setting our sights on the Robert Bourassa generating station, a hydroelectric damn on the La Grande River in northern Quebec. This trip will be roughly the same length as our voyage to the Daniel-Johnson dam, a round trip that will stretch nearly 3,000 km long. The journey will take our 26' tandem axle test trailer through a number of different environments, allowing us the opportunity to truly test our block's ability to endure harsh terrains. We'll be collecting a lot of data along the way and studying the interactions of our heavy components. This will include our impressions of the trip and dam, before-and-after shots of the trailer's installation and gorgeous, high-resolution pictures of all the sights we see up north.

We'll be sharing the results of our second Performance Voyage in an After-Action Report and we can't wait for you to join in our experiences. Keep an eye on the blog and our social media channels for the latest updates and content uploads.

Update: New Kit Option

Welcome back to the Trailer Blocks Blog,

We have an announcement we'd like to share with you. Starting now, we'll be adding a brand new component to our range of signature lift/lowering block kits: Pressed Steel Tie Plates

Trailer Blocks kit with tie plate

When you visit our store, you'll see that we've introduced the tie plates as part of a new kit option. The kit will include our signature aluminum trailer blocks, U-bolts and tie plates, able to accommodate all appropriate sizes

Our goal in adding the tie plates to our kit lineup is to provide a high quality factory replacement when mounting a lift/lowering block to your trailer. We've been hearing from some folks that their current tie plates are bent, rusted or generally inadequate and we came to the unanimous decision that this simply won't do.

We hope this new kit will supplement your needs when customizing your trailer ride height.

Update: Heartbleed Bug

Posted by Blog Master in bug, Heartbleed, trailer blocks blog, Update

A quick update for you today regarding an important issue.

As some of you have read or heard about, a compromising leak in the infrastructure of OpenSSL known as the "Heartbleed Bug" has been discovered. As a result, compromised websites have been encouraging their users to change their credentials. After thorough inspection, we'd like to take this time to reassure our readers and customers that Trailer Blocks was not affected by the Heartbleed Bug at all. We take the protection of our customer's personal data very seriously and we hope this news is a relief to you.

Our first Blogs in Motion segment is coming along and we can't wait to share it with you. More in the days to come.

Same Blog, New Focus

Welcome back to the Trailer Blocks Blog!

It's been a busy week for us here and we're not slowing down anytime soon. This week saw the release of our long-awaited Photo Gallery (see for yourself) and we've taken the first steps towards uploading our performance test footage (more news on that soon) for you to enjoy. It is our hope that these pictures and clips will show you the reliability of our products both in the workshop and on the open road. However, as we continue to move forward, it's also important to take a look back and there's a matter we'd like to address.

It's been awhile since our last substantial entry and it hasn't been without cause. Over the last few months, we've been brainstorming the best possible way to showcase our product lineup and our performance tests while also providing an insightful and entertaining dialogue between us and the community. Although we remain committed to both of these goals, the blog in it's present form simply wasn't allowing us to do both of these effectively. We ultimately decided that the blog needed a bit more focus and structure in its presentation in order to deliver informative, engaging articles on a regular basis. After much deliberation, we've come to a decision on how to proceed from here.

In the near future, the Trailer Blocks Blog will be returning on a much more consistent basis. From now on, new entries will fall under one of three categories:

Updates: For all the latest news on our product line, content uploads and site improvements. Updates will be uploaded as appropriate.

After-Action Reports: For the hard details on our performance voyages and equipment tests. After-Action Reports will be uploaded in the days following.

Blogs in Motion: For community-driven topics, opinion pieces and the occasional "odd topic". Blogs in Motion is a brand new, bi-weekly feature that will be premiering soon.

Blogs in Motion is a new series that will give us a chance to share some of our thoughts and methods with you in a more focused format and it's our intention to release entries on a much more consistent basis, so keep an eye out for them. Although the Updates and A.A. Reports will be drawn from our own operations, the Blogs in Motion segment will cover a wider range of topics that we intend to originate from both us and you. We already have a list of topics we plan to explore, but we'd also like to hear your suggestions for future articles.

If you have any suggestions for topics you'd like to see covered, please send them and any blog feedback to: blogsinmotion@trailerblocks.com

We're very excited to be moving forward with this new format and we'll have more for you in the days to come.
