Tow Bars

Tow Bars

If your business requires you to have a tow bar fitted on your pickup truck or van, let us know. We will arrange for the dealer to fit one to the vehicle before delivery.

Adding a tow bar to your business van lease

Also called a tow hitch, a tow bar is a device that can tow another vehicle or trailer. Tow bars are attached to the chassis of a vehicle and are commonly used in towing aircraft and caravans.

Tow bars often consist of a tow-ball which allows articulation and swivelling of the trailer being towed. If you need a tow bar on your new commercial vehicle lease, we can add this for you. Whether you need a tow-ball or a tow pin and jaw with a trailer loop, we'll ensure to fit this to your pickup lease or business van. 

Tow bars must all be approved by the European Union directive if in the EU, so consider where you are towing your commercial vehicle. We commonly see tow bars added to large vans4x4 vehicles, and pickups

Types of tow bar for your vehicle lease

ISO Tow-balls

The standard ISO tow-ball measures 50mm in diameter and has been adopted by most of the world. ISO tow-balls fall into two main categories - the flange fitting and the swan-neck fitting. The swan neck, true to its name, has an elongated neck fitting into the tow-bracket. This kind of tow-ball is generally removable. It is inconvenient to have a tow-ball protruding from a vehicle when not being used. Because of this, retractable tow-balls are now an option made by some manufacturers.

Single Electrics

When all that is needed are road lights, single electrics AKA '12N', are suitable. Single electrics are the perfect choice for using with a cycle carrier lighting board or a trailer.

Double Electrics and Relay

Double electrics are what is needed to provide a permanent live connection into something like a caravan. When aided by a relay, it is possible to use the battery charge facility and fridge in a caravan. The single electrics, plus another socket, are incorporated in the double electrics and relay. Double electrics also allow a reversing light to be wired in if it is needed.
