Types of towbars 

Fixed – Flange bolt on ball 

The most popular traditional form of towbar used in the UK, ideal for all towing needs and for mounting cycle carriers. A fixed towbar is usually the most reasonably priced and lasts the lifetime of your car. The Flange ball towbar is height adjustable, made for heavy duty work.

As more vehicles now have parking sensors fitted there is the chance that the parking sensors will pick up the flangeball. Ask for further details.

Detachable – swan neck

This type of towbar has a detachable neck which can be removed when you don’t need it and so does not protrude out of the bumper and once removed in most cases the towbar is not visible. Detachable towbars are the same quality as fixed in terms of strength and security and a locking mechanism ensures complete safety. 

Fixed – Swan neck

The swan neck towball is integral with the rearward-projecting part of the towbar. Traditionally used in Europe but are becoming more popular in the UK because they are neater, and more compact.

Please note Swan necks are not compatible with towball mounted accessories such as bumper guards and some types of cycle carriers. But they are compatible with Alko Stabilisers with no need to purchase a new Alko towball.
