All towbars are covered by a manufacturers life time guarantee (as long as you own the car) Electric components are guaranteed for 12 months.
All towbar fitting is carried out in our well equipped workshop, with a fast turn around in fitting your towbar you could be back on the road again in a few hours.
Single Electrics, also known as 12(N), are fitted as standard.
They provide power from the towbar to the lights on a trailer or caravan. If you’re only going to be towing a trailer, this is all you need.
You can tow a caravan using only single electrics, but the interior functions of the caravan, such as the fridge, won’t have power to them.
If you will only be using the towbar for a cycle carrier, we recommend that you still have a single electric socket fitted so that you can power a light board over the bikes.
Twin Electrics, or 12(S) are fitted in addition to single electrics if you are going to use your towbar for towing a caravan.
The extra grey socket provides power to operate the interior functions of the caravan, such as interior lights, run the fridge and charge the battery while you are towing.
13 pin Electrics are standard in most european countries. They will slowly replace the separate 2 socket currently used in this country. The 13 pin socket is essentially the two 7 pin sockets merged in to one.
All caravans manufactured in the UK from 2008 will be fitted with an ISO 13 pin connector as standard. This system uses one socket with 13 pins inside, instead of the traditional two separate 7 pin sockets.
13 pin sockets are also used on some vehicles – especially with detachable towbars when there isn’t enough room to mount two separate sockets.
7 lamp bypass with programmed microchip controller, intelligent switching on all circuits makes the trailer lights work correctly at all times, however complex the car’s lighting control system.
The advanced relay uses logic to control the switching of the trailer lighting circuits. The ultra smart bypass, with its enhanced logic will work without adjustment on virtually all current 12v cars. It bypasses any vehicle bulb failure warning systems.
Used with twin sockets or a 13 pin socket for caravan towers.
This relay provides charging power to the caravan’s leisure battery and to the caravan’s fridge when the vehicle engine is running and the vehicles alternator provides enough charge.
The relay stops the caravan from drawing any power and flattening the car battery if there is not enough output or the vehicle is not running.
This is the most popular detechable style, and slightly cheaper than the Detachable Flanged
Slightly more expensive than the fixed flange towbar, but less likely to trigger the reversing sensors
This is the most popular towbar used in the UK, and the cheapest option
