Are you planning a road trip moving to a new home, or have a trailer you want to tow with your car? If so, it’s time for a towbar installation – now made easier and swifter by Muffler Mart and Tyre! We are the trusted supplier for all kinds of tow bar fitting and installation in Penrith and Western Sydney. Our technicians will figure out the safest way to install these accessories on your vehicle.

Before installing towbars, it is necessary to figure out the most suitable type to meet your requirements. To do so, you must consider questions such as what you want to use the towbar for, how much weight you wish to haul, the make and model of your vehicle, and how much weight it is capable of towing.

Tow Bar Installation Penrith

Based on your answers, you’ll either need to install a Flange Ball Towbar or Swan Neck Towbar – the two types available in the market right now. After that, you can decide which electric kit suits your make and model best: 7-Pin, 7-Pin Twin, or 13-Pin. It’s crucial to make the right choice so you, your family, and your prized possessions can be safe on the roads.

You can perform these installations as a DIY project or have our professionals take a look. While certain towbars can be easily installed by the owner, other models require much more complex installations. This varies depending on the type of vehicle you own and the tow bar fitting style. For the best results, we also recommend a professional installation as it is much quicker and safer.

What Are the Australian Standards for Towbars?

Getting a towbar installation in Penrith and Western Sydney requires 100% compliance with the Vehicle Standard (Australian Design Rules (ADRs) 62/01-02) of 2007. The laws governing towbars state that:

  • Both the vehicle and attached trailer must adhere to all the relevant licensing requirements
  • The towbar and any couplings must not obstruct the vehicle’s licence plate or rear lights
  • Towbarsmust not tow more than one trailer at a time
  • When using a 50 mm tow ball, it must be fixed between 350 to 460mm from the ground
  • The towing vehicle must not exceed the speed limit in Western Australia or 100km/h, whichever is lower
  • The vehicle or trailer must not be loaded more than their individual capacities
  • All towbars and couplings must display the maximum load capacity as well as the make and model of the vehicle

What’s Better — Fixed or Detachable Towbars?

Fixed towbars, as the name implies, are permanent attachments that turn your car into a towing vehicle whenever you need them. Demanding little to no maintenance, they have a simple design and are therefore a cheaper option than detachable ones. They are ideal for frequent and commercial towing.

On the other hand, detachable towbars come with removable necks that are safe, sturdy, and of course, easy to detach from your vehicle once the job is done. A clever version of fixed towbars, detachable bars are available in three types: vertical, horizontal, and diagonal. As they offer varying degrees of invisibility, the detachable towbar is a great choice for carrying bicycles, towing things once in a while, or simply avoiding triggering reverse parking sensors when not towing.
