Horizontal Hitch Towbars (40mm or 50mm)

Say “Towbar” and this is the towbar that Australians will imagine. The horizontal hitch is what most people have in mind when they think about a removable towbar. By far the most common style of towbar installed on larger cars, the 50mm horizontal hitch is strong, neat, useful and adaptable. Less common than the 50mm hitch, the 40mm hitch offers a nice clean finish on cars where the 50mm is too large or heavy.

Vertical Hitch Towbar (50mm)

As car are continually modernised, one design trend is to see the bumpers wrap further and further underneath the car.  To avoid making a large ugly cut in the face of the bumper for the towbar to exit, vertical hitches allow the towbar to exit through an almost invisible cut in the bottom of the bumper and in doing so mimic European Towbars with a down first and then out mentality to remove.
