Your perfect fit!

Retractable towbar

Do you regularly use your towbar, value the design of your car and want the best ease of use? The retractable towbar offers this combination. If the towbar is put away, there is nothing to indicate the presence of it under your car and you only need one simple hand movement before it is ready to use again.


Your boot lid is easy to reach and your boot easy to load with a retractable towbar, as there’s no towbar in the way during loading and unloading. Another advantage is that the retractable towbar is maintenance-free. The ball is always connected to the sleeve, ensuring not dirt is left behind. Due to this, the retractable towbar combines all features of both the fixed and detachable towbars.

Brink has an extensive selection of retractable towbars. However, the system is not available for all cars. Not every vehicle has enough room behind the bumper to fold in the retractable towbar.

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 retractable towbar

However, with the retractable towbar, you will no longer have to store a ball in your boot while still having a towbar that leaves the design of your car intact. Therefore, the retractable towbar appeals to all your wishes.

Ease of use

It is really easy to operate the retractable towbar. The ball appears from behind the bumper by pulling a lever under the car. The ball of the towbar can be locked in place in with minimal force by gripping the top with your hand and gently pushing it in. During this rotation, the towbar moves slightly upwards until it locks with a click. You only need two actions to unlock the ball again. First, use your hand to turn the dial on the ball in the direction of the ball, then use your thumb to twist it down in one smooth motion to unlock the ball. Next, grip the ball of the towbar with your hand and turn it back in the direction of the bumper. The ball clicks in place behind the bumper in one smooth motion.

Ergonomic operation

The dial on the ball of the manually retractable towbar has 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. You can quickly and easily unlock the manually retractable towbar. This dial has arrows that show the action needed for unlocking the system.


The retractable towbar offers the same security and towing ability as a fixed towbar. The ball is always connected to the sleeve now too, ensuring it cannot slip loose while driving.

Audible locking

The lock of the manually retractable towbar is very audible. As you lock the ball you can hear a clear click, thanks to ErgoclickTM. This confirms that the towbar has been properly locked in place.

Visible locking

It is easy to see whether the manually retractable towbar is locked. The dial has a built-in colour indication consisting of colour codes. Green means a successful lock. Red indicates a new attempt is required.
