Alko and Standard Towbars

An Alko towbar has a slightly longer neck than a standard towbar. If you’ve got an Alko hitch, you’ll need an Alko towbar and at Cappa in Derby, we’ve got plenty in stock. Speak to our specialists here in the West Midlands and we’ll make sure you’ve got the right one. We're based in Derby and welcome clients from across Leicester, Coventry, Sheffield and the surrounding areas. Just give us a call and we'll get everything sorted - it's that simple!

Do I need an Alko or a standard towbar?

An Alko towbar’s neck is further away from the flange, which helps to stop larger hitches from fouling the rear of the vehicle. Please note that if you use a standard towbar to move an Alko hitch and there’s an accident, this could invalidate your insurance, so it's really not worth the risk. The last thing that we want is for anyone to lose their no claims bonus, so our team in Derby will make sure you've got the right type based on what you're towing, and ensure everything's fitted properly for you too.  Make sure you stay safe. Speak to the specialists at Cappa Tints and Towbars and let us take a look.
