A fixed flange towbar is versatile and can also be used with tow ball mounted accessories, including bicycle carriers, bumper protectors and different types of stabilisers.
These can all be mounted between the tow bar and ball. What are the Benefits of a Fixed Flange Towbar? It's cost-effectiveIt is capable of towing and carry bikes at the same timeIt is compatible with a wide range of towing couplings and accessoriesThe tow ball can be upgraded to an AL-KO one (can be used with an AL-KO stabiliser)You can achieve different towing heights and clearances by using height-adjustable couplings, drop plates and spacers. The look of a fixed flange towbar is considered to be less aesthetically pleasing than other styles as the bolts are visible.

All is explained in detail on our towing guide pages, but here's the short of it.. Fixed flange towbars are the most versatile, at the cost of being bulky and are likely to trigger reversing sensors. Fixed swan necks lose the versatility of the flange type but gain a sleeker fitment, are less likely to trigger sensors and look better to suit. Detachable towbars are similar to swan necks but can be removed fully when not in use maintaining your vehicles appearance. Guarantees proper operation of reversing sensors.
7 Pin (12N) provides your basic lights except for reverse and is ideal for bike carriers, trailers and caravans where power feeds are not required. 12S and 13 Pin provide an ignition switched and permanent power feed in addition to reverse and is primarily used for caravans. Dedicated or VSK electrics are the recommended choice especially for DIY fittings as they include full instructions and provide a more professional fitment. Universal electrics are also an option but take more care to fit properly.
Fantastic service from them, once again very helpful when queried and always willing to assist with problems. Towbar was packaged really well for such a heavy item, and arrived on time too.
