What is a retractable towbar?
A retractable towbar is a towbar solution that can easily be folded out of sight if you are not using it.
Ease of use
This towbar solution is very user-friendly and is ready to use within seconds. This towbar is as readily available as it can be tucked away behind the bumper again. This retractable solution has two great advantages. Unlike the detachable towbar, you will not have to dismount this towbar and store it in a different location. In addition, this towbar is completely invisible in almost every type of car when stored behind the bumper.
It is often thought that the fixed towbar is a stronger and safer solution than a retractable towbar. This is incorrect. The retractable towbar offers the same security and strength as the fixed towbar. The ball on which you connect your bike carrier, trailer, caravan, boat trailer or horsebox, always remains fixed to the car. This means it can never break loose during driving.
This towbar is not available for every car. The main reason behind the fact that this solution cannot be applied to every car has to do with the construction of the car. Not every car offers sufficient room behind the bumper to fold away the towbar.
If a retractable towbar is not available for your car, we are glad to help you look for another suitable towbar solution. You could choose between a detachable towbar and a fixed towbar.
