If you want to use your vehicle to transport larger loads, boats, jet skis, bikes, trailers, or caravans, a tow bar is the key feature you require. Tow bar installations are a very common aftermarket upgrade. Our team has explained everything you need to know before getting a tow bar fitted.
Tow bar fitting
In the first step of choosing a tow bar, you should consider what exactly you need the tow bar for and how heavy the loads will be you want to use it for.
Once you have determined this, our ProSpark Auto Electrical team can assist you to find a suitable tow bar solution for your vehicle make and model. Every vehicle is different and may require a different tow bar design.
Your vehicle also has a maximum towing capacity which you will have to consider. The trailer, caravan or towing object you choose must not exceed that weight. Tow bars also have a varying maximum towing capacity. Overall, all these requirements influence the accessories you may want to consider.

Depending on the loads you want to tow, the additional weight will influence the handling of your vehicle in general. Adding a trailer may reduce your steering and braking capability. For this reason, it is very important that we check the weight distribution of your carrying solution to ensure that you can safely steer and brake.
Features such as weight distribution and sway control systems can make your towing experience safer.
We install weight distribution systems if your vehicle sags in the rear when towing. As it evenly distributes the towing weight over the axles of the vehicle and your trailer, it increases your overall steering and brake control.
If your towing load exceeds 750kg, you will require a brake controller. Our team will be able to give you detailed advice on this feature as well.
A trailer stability control system is an additional feature that complements that weight distribution system. It reduces and inhibits movements at the pivot point in between the trailer and tow bar of your vehicle.
Vehicles towing with automatic transmissions should also consider correct cooling when towing as they are under constant load. This can cause premature transmission damage. We can assist with this by adding aftermarket transmission coolers to suit every vehicle. This keeps the temperature down and prolongs the life of your transmission.
