"The Towbar you can adjust in seconds for the perfect towing set-up"

The Standard Adjustable Height Towbar range includes three different length frames, each pre-drilled with a range of hole centres for fixing to a vehicle or existing towbar, and includes pin, slider, rclip and a selection of fixing bolts. There is also a 2 pin slider version which provides a good heigh range in a compact unit.
