There are 2 styles of towbar available. You can choose between either a flange ball towbar, where the towbar has a faceplate with the towball bolted to it, or you can get a swan neck towbar which has a one piece neck with the towball attached.
Either option can be available as a detachable option where the neck can be removed from the towbar when you are not using it.
Please note that not all styles of towbar are available for every vehicle. You can use our Towbar Finder to find the towbar types that are available for your car.
A Fixed Flange Towbar is generally the most cost effective option, and is the most commonly used in the UK. The tow ball is attached to the tow bar using either two or four 24mm bolts, and it can be used with tow ball mounted accessories ie cycle carriers, bumper protectors etc, which are mounted between the tow bar and ball.
A Detachable Flange Towbar is the newest type of towbar and works in a very similar way to the Fixed Flange Towbar. The towball is attached to the neck with 2 24mm bolts, however the neck can be removed from the bar using a lock and key. The standard towball is an Alko ball, so is compatible with Alko stabilisers.
Fixed Swan Neck Towbars are often used outside of the UK. They are the less adaptable than Flange towbars as they cannot be used with additional accessories. Cycle carriers are available, however they cannot be used whilst towing.
The Detachable Swan Neck Towbar is similar to the Fixed Swan Neck, this style was the first detachable type to be offered. It is mainly used in Europe, and although a cycle carrier can be used, but they cannot tow at the same time.
