Can I temporarily disconnect my fixed towbar?
This is possible in practice, as the ball (the visible part of the towbar) is fixed to the car with several strong nuts and bolts. However, we strongly advise against doing so. During installation of the towbar, the mechanic tightens these nuts with the amount of pressure prescribed by the car manufacturer. This pressure has been determined to offer a safety guarantee. If you remove the towbar, there is a chance the refastening is done incorrectly. Vibrations during driving could cause the nuts and bolts to loosen and fall off, with disastrous consequences
If you still want to disconnect the towbar, despite this warning, we recommend having a certified mechanic do so. Visit a garage to have the towbar refastened as well. That way, you are sure installation is done professionally. If you want to disconnect your fixed towbar more often, it might perhaps be better to exchange it for a detachable towbar.
