Towbar Fitting Information
There are 2 types of towbar, one is flange type tow bar and the other is a swan neck towbar, named due to their shape.
Each of them come as a fixed version or a detachable version, the detachable version being more expensive than the fixed version.
So what towbar do you need for your car?
Choosing the right tow bar for your vehicle can be difficult but can depend on your car and its age because some cars can only take a specific type of tow bar.
The most popular type of tow bar is the flange type generally because it is cheaper and is versatile. To explain what a flange tow bar is like, is to say its tow ball is bolted to the tow bar with bolts.
It is versatile because it can be used with tow ball accessories like cycle carriers, bumper protectors and stabilisers, all mounted between the tow bar & ball.
So one way to choose the right tow bar is to think also about how you want to use your tow bar in the future.
