How to organise your tow bar fitting.

Tow bar Types

Standard (Tongue) towbars

Standard tow bar gooseneck Tow bar lug spanner

The standard towbar uses a tongue to mount the tow ball and are also known as gooseneck towbars. The tongue can be removed by undoing 2 bolts. The standard bar is ideal for towing lighter loads like small box trailers, tinnies, jet skis and many other single axle trailers. Ratings range from 600kg to 1600kg depending on the vehicle. There is also a large range of bike carriers that can be used with a gooseneck tow bar, see our bike rack page for details.

Hidden release (Tongue) towbars

The hidden release tongue bar looks like a conventional standard towbar but it has a hidden release shaft and pin attachment hidden behind the bumper. When the tongue is removed the rest of the tow bar is completely hidden behind the bumper.
