Round Post Coupler

Watch a crash test  See how durable it is

Promising to forever change the way Traffic Signs are Installed.

The round Break-Out is an easy to use alternative to conventional signpost breakaways which enables permanent anchor base installations in soil, asphalt or concrete.

Not just another breakable bolt or splice connection. Break-Out is the worlds only breakaway device in which the fasteners play no role in the breakaway feature.

The product is engineered to ensure maximum wind load capability of 120 mph (90% of the post bending moment).

For roughly the cost of a slip base or splice hardware kit (up to 75% less per complete installation) the Break-Out offers advanced features within a reliable user friendly design.

Gone are the piles of parts, torque wrenches and complicated installation/repair methods.

The Round Break-Out is currently available for 2-3/8" OD pipe or tube of various schedules or gauges. Other sizes are on the way!

Break-Out Firsts

  • Breaks away with a set, amount of force from any angle of incidence (360º), irrespective of speed of impact.
  • Allows simple low cost conversion of a round post system to a full Break-away.
  • Anchor is driven flush with grade and coupler shears level, eliminating the potential for pedestrian trip or falls, as the hole is plugged and no shards of metal remain.
  • Made of powder coated ductile material, the Break-Out will elongate (bend) up to 12% (providing for high wind load capability), yet shear upon impact from a vehicle.
  • Near 100% reusability of the anchor means that you will never have to replace it, saving thousands!
  • No special tools are required for installation, just a ratchet and a pair of pliers.
  • Wedge-Lock® feature securely and quickly attaches to the anchor.
  • Comes complete with all fasteners.
  • After impact the sign can be repaired in less than 5 minutes by removing the wedge from the anchor and inserting a new coupler.
  • Simple, with 3 components, you can say goodbye to complicated slip bases, straps, bars, breakable bolts and splices.
  • The Break-Out system makes it easy to change post types without the need for a new anchor installation. To use a U-channel or square post post in lieu of a round tube simply insert the correct version of Break-Out into your existing anchor and attach the corresponding top post.
