Towbars Market: Applications and Global Markets

Press Release   •   Apr 13, 2018 08:19 EDT

Towbars are also known as trailer hitchers. Towbars are used for pulling trailers, carriers, or campers for both commercial and leisure purposes. Trailers, carriers or campers are attached to the rear of a vehicle by towbars and pulled forward. Towbars are attached to the vehicle chassis. They consist of a neck with a towball at one end which helps the towbar to pull the carrier or trailer. Towbars are used when engine breakdown occurs or if a vehicle is not in working condition and needs to be pulled to the service station by another vehicle which has a towbar attached to its chassis.

Fixed towbars are towbars which are integrated with a vehicle’s chassis and cannot be removed. They are permanently fixed to a vehicle. Fixed towbars are of two types – flange ball and bolt-on towbars. Flange ball towbars are generally used in commercial vehicles and bolt-on towbars are used in passenger vehicles. Detachable towbars are towbars which are not integrated with the vehicle’s chassis and can be removed from the chassis when the towbar is not required. Detachable towbars do not hinder the design of a vehicle. Detachable towbars are of two types: horizontally detachable towbars and vertically detachable towbars.
