What is a detachable flange towbar?

A detachable flange towbar refers to the shape of the towbar neck and plate and it fixes underneath the bumper of your vehicle. The towbar is attached to the plate with 2 bolts and can be detached when you are not towing, so only the part where the towbar attaches to is visible.

Why choose a detachable flange towbar?

If you are towing a heavy trailer or caravan, a flange towbar is a great option. However, if you want to make reverse parking easier or avoid triggering your parking sensors, then a detachable flange towbar would be more convenient. Additionally, when you detach your towbar, you remove the risk of knocking your legs against it when you access the boot.

The benefits of a detachable flange towbar

While the detachable flange towbar is not suitable for all vehicles, it offers a range of benefits for compatible vehicles. As well as being able to remove the towbar when not in use, it can be used with a range of accessories such as bumper protector plates, stabilisers and towbar mounted bike racks. Other benefits include:

  • Compact and discreet when not in use
  • Ideal for irregular towing
  • Flexible and versatile
  • AL-KO towballs can be fitted
