                  Confused by the towbar types, check out our guide to towbars.


Fixed flange towbar


​Traditionally the most used in the UK for all serious forms of towing and generally the most cost effective option. A 50mm towball is bolted to a two or four hole plate that also allows the fitting of a 25mm spacer so that accessories such as a towbar mounted cycle carrier can be used.

Tow and carry cycles at the same time (subject to nose load limits)
Bumper shields can be fitted
AL-KO towballs can be fitted
The towing height can be adjusted on commercial and 4x4 four-hole plate towbars
A choice of towing couplings and accessories can be fitted

Detachable Flange Towbar

Exclusive to Witter and only recently introduced this version offers all the versatility of a fixed flange bar whilst leaving very little of the towbar visible when detached.

The towball is removed when not in use preserving 'shins'
AL-KO towballs can be fitted
Won't trigger reversing sensors when not towing
A choice of towing couplings and accessories can be fitted

Fixed Swan Neck Towbar

Mainly used outside the UK. This type of tow bar is becoming more popular in the U.K. due to the appearance of the bar looking neater and with the bar being narrower it is less likely to trigger your parking sensors. This tow bar is compatible with Alko stabilisers as it has an extended neck.
 
Compatible with AL-KO stabilisers.
Less likely to trigger reversing sensors.
Slightly more expensive than the flange towbar.
Cannot be fitted with a bumper shield.

Towball colours may vary.

Alko towball

Bolt-on type 50 mm flange towball with extended neck to allow correct stabiliser articulation and clearances. If you have a ALKO stabaliser on your caravan (Red hitch) you will need this type of towball. The AL-KO stabiliser hitch is bigger than a standard hitch and cannot be used with a standard fixed flanged towball. A special extended neck towball must always be used with AL-KO stabiliser hitches, unless a swan-neck towball is used.

If you have a alko tow hitch you will need a alko towball.
The alko towball has a extended neck to stop the hitch fouling. 
The towball needs to be free of any paint or grease (we clean the ball for £5)
An alko Towball is £8 extra

If you need a ball and pin coupling we charge £50

Towball is removed when not in use preserving 'shins'
Unrestricted access to the boot
AL-KO and other friction type stabilisers can be fitted
