Detachable Flange Ball

Detachable Flange Towbars prove to be popular as the neck can be detached from the car leaving very little or, in most cases, none of the towbar visible.

David Murphy Towing in Northern Ireland stocks a comprehensive range of towbars from some of Europe’s leading manufacturers including Brink, Witter, Westfalia, Bosal, A1 and PCT. 

So how do you decide which one best fits your needs and your vehicle? 

One of the most popular types of towbar in Northern Ireland is the Flange Towbar. There are variations of fixed and detachable with both. 

To some degree, the choice will be dependent on your vehicle, as not all makes and models can support both types of towbar and David Murphy Towing can advise you on this. 

The Flange Towbar is one of the most commonly used in Northern Ireland and generally considered the most cost-effective towing option. 

The Detachable Flange Towbar has all the benefits of the fixed model - including the ability to use certain accessories including bicycle carriers even while towing and the capability to fit a bumper protector, as well as the additional options for adjustable couplings, bar and pin systems for towing plant trailers and generators, and the option to upgrade to use with a stabiliser. 

The Detachable Flange Towbar has all of this plus the ability to remove the bar when it is not in use. 

You will want to get the best advice before purchasing a Detachable Flange Towbar from David Murphy Towing and our expert fitters will help you check your vehicle for important issues such as parking sensors that may be affected.
