yes, the package installed by Mr. Coletti includes the new rules:

# TrippLite
#  e.g. TrippLite ECO550UPS  - usbhid-ups
ATTR{idVendor}=="09ae", ATTR{idProduct}=="1010", MODE="664", GROUP="dialout"
#  e.g. TrippLite SU3000LCD2UHV  - usbhid-ups
ATTR{idVendor}=="09ae", ATTR{idProduct}=="1330", MODE="664", GROUP="dialout"
#  e.g. TrippLite OMNI1000LCD  - usbhid-ups
ATTR{idVendor}=="09ae", ATTR{idProduct}=="2005", MODE="664", GROUP="dialout"
