How do I find out what my tow bars noseweight is?
On most vehicles registered from 1st August 1998 (S Reg) onwards there should be an identification plate on or near the towbar fixings.
This will give you the weights you require.
For vehicles registered prior to this your vehicle hand book would have this information or you could contact your local towbar fitter.
I have an old rack that I purchased some years ago, can I still buy spare parts?
Yes you can, please contact us by phone or email and we will advise you of price and availability.
We can usually supply most parts no matter how large or small.
Can I purchase another mounting block for a second vehicle?
Yes, providing it is the same type of tow bar.
I have a swanneck/detachable tow bar, can i still tow whilst using one of your tow bar carriers?
My car isn't listed on the fitting guide, will any racks fit?
If you can't see your car on the fitting guide or are unsure about any aspect of fitting a rack to your particular vehicle please contact us by phone or email by clicking the "Contact Us" tab at the top of the page.
We will do our best to help you.
What are your office hours?
We are open for enquiries from 9am until 5pm Monday - Thursday and 9am until 2pm on Fridays.
Outside hours you may leave an answerphone message or email and we will try to get back to you ASAP.
My mounting block is not shown on your website, can I still buy one?
Unfortunately this item has been discontinued. The older 'Hang On Type' racks are not suitable for use with our current blocks, older wheel support racks may be suitable.
Please contact our sales office if you have any questions.
This type of mounting should not be used if the towbar spacer allowance on your tow bar is less than 50mm.
This will be specified by the tow bar maker.
