Detachable swan neck towbar, where the neck of the towbar can be removed when not in use.
Detachable towbars avoid any issues with parking sensors picking up the towbar neck, so ultimately if your car has reverse parking sensors this would be the best option for you.

Single 7 Pin Electrics are fitted as default with a towbar installation.
They provide power to operate the lights on a standard UK trailer or cycle carrier.
If your trailer has reverse lights, or Alko ATC Control fitted, you may need 13 pin electrics.
Even if you are only using your towbar to support a cycle carrier you will still need these electrics to power the lights on the cycle carrier, or on a light board over the bikes.
This is a legal requirement because bikes on the carrier may obscure the lights on your car.
Twin Electrics (12S) Electrics are fitted in addition to the standard Single 7 Pin Socket if you will be towing a caravan built pre-2008 that has 2 power cables.
The 12S socket provides power for:
13 Pin Electrics are fitted when you will be towing a caravan built from 2008 onwards.
The 13 Pin socket combines the old style twin 7 pin sockets in to one.
The socket provides all the power needed to operate the road lights on your trailer or caravan, and provides 12 volt power to operate all the other functions of your caravan.
You can use a trailer or cycle carrier that has a 7 pin plug, but you would need an adaptor which is available in our Accessories section.
Universal Aftermarket Wiring is fitted to your vehicle using an interface relay to protect your cars electrics.
This type of wiring is available for older models where the vehicle is out of it's warranty, and does not have built in safety features that must be activated.
If your vehicle is still within it's manufacturers warranty we would recommend the fitment of Vehicle Specific Wiring.
Each kit is designed specifically for the vehicle that it is fitted to, and rather than soldering or using 'Scotch Locks' to connect the towbar wiring, which is the case with universal aftermarket wiring, these kits interface with the vehicle systems in the same way as the vehicle manufacturer intended.
If your vehicle is less than 3 years old, or is still within it's manufacturers warranty, you would need vehicle specific wiring to protect that warranty.
Other towing functions such as Trailer Stability Control that are available on your car would be activated when vehicle specific wiring is fitted.

"The fitter arrived on time and, having introduced himself, set about fitting the tow bar very quickly. The electrics took a little longer but it was..."
