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.
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.
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.
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.
