Brink Towbar Fitter overview

Mechanics’ choice

With our vehicle-specific towbars and wiring kits, we ensure technicians have access to a wide range of premium quality products. In addition, they are available for next day delivery and easy to install. We are also pleased to offer support, through training courses, clear fitting instructions and technical assistance during installations by our after sales team.

Developed in Holland

We are proud of the fact that we design, test and manufacture all our towbars in our own facilities. We do not have any production locations in so-called low-wage countries to save costs, to the detriment of employment opportunities in our own country. We trust the quality and flexibility of our own employees.

Car manufacturers’ choice

Brink is the first choice of many car manufacturers. Our collaboration is very extensive. We contribute to their innovation, design and construction process and guarantee they receive reliable and high-quality products that can easily be integrated into their cars. Brink is in liaison with many vehicle manufacturers during the design phase of a new car.

Innovation detachable towbar

You no longer have a permanently visible towbar on your car, but at the same time, you always have one handy when you need it. After placement, a detachable towbar is optimally prepared for the burden of both bike carriers (vertical load) and trailers, caravans, boat trailers and horse boxes (horizontal load). After the tow ball is removed, the original design of the car remains as intended. This results in system solution that is both beautiful and solid.

Ease of use

For all types of detachable towbars, the ball can be manually placed and removed extremely easily. It only takes a handful of seconds and a few clicks to get the job done. You won’t get your hands dirty, as no tools, lubrication or grease are required to lock or unlock the ball. Another advantage is that the detachable towbar is maintenance-free. A cover cap is included. You can place this in the sleeve after the tow ball is unlocked, completely covering the sleeve. This prevents dirt from accumulating in the sleeve. A third advantage of a detachable towbar is that your boot lid is better accessible. Because of this, it is easier to load your boot, as there’s no towbar in the way during loading and unloading. We provide a storage bag with our towbars. This ensures you can store the towbar in your car without leaving dirt.

Ergonomic operation

The dial on the ball of the diagonal and vertical detachable towbar both have an ergonomic design. The dial is comfortable to use as your fingers, hand, wrist and arm are in a natural position when taking hold of the dial. Because of this, you can ensure an optimal power transmission with a minimal exertion of force when unlocking the towbar. Unlocking the ball of the detachable bike carrier towbar is a quick and easy affair. This dial has arrows that show the two consecutive actions needed for unlocking the system.


The detachable towbar offers the same security and strength as a fixed towbar. The adjustable towbar can also make the most of the vertical axle load and the trailer weight as listed by car manufacturers. The locking system has been put through extensive testing for these maximum values and in the most extreme driving conditions.

Audible locking

The lock of the diagonal and vertical detachable towbars is very audible. As you lock the ball you can hear a clear click, thanks to ErgoclickTM. This confirms that the ball has been properly locked in place.

Visible locking

Whether the lock of the detachable towbar is in place is easy to see. The dial of both systems has a built-in colour indication consisting of colour codes. Green means a successful lock. Red indicates a new attempt is required.

Anti-theft lockTM

All detachable towbars are protected against theft. The ball has a permanent safety lock with a key. You can use this at the times you decide to leave the ball in the sleeve. The design of the lock is such that it is an integral part of the towbar.
