Towball for Caravans and Trailers


If you have an AL-KO AKS Stabiliser fitted to your caravan, you need to ensure that you are using the correct towball. AL-KO supplies a black painted towball as part of every boxed UK stabiliser sold.

It may be an item that you need to purchase separately. A purpose made towball cover, to keep your towball clean and protect against rust formation. Towball cover for Alko AKS extended towball

Hitch Couplings for Caravans and Trailers


Unbraked or braked Ball Couplings for your caravan or trailer. It is important that you have been correctly advised and shown by your dealer how to couple a caravan to a tow vehicle. It is easier if the coupling is higher than the tow ball before reversing the car. Use the jockey wheel to adjust the eight. Carlton Light Trailer Coupling is an adjustable coupling suitable for all trailers not requiring brakes.

Break Away Cables for caravans and trailers


If your trailer is unbraked then you will need a secondary coupling, which usually comes in the form of a stout cable or chain connecting the trailer hitch to the tow bracket. It is designed to keep the trailer attached to the towing vehicle if the primary coupling fails. The length of cable or chain shall be such as to prevent the trailer hitch from dropping onto the road.
Trailers over 750kg must be fitted with brakes and these trailers must be fitted with a breakaway cable. In the event of the main coupling failing, the breakaway cable will apply the trailer brakes and then snap off.
TheSteel Breakaway cable is designed to apply the brakes on a trailer or caravan in the event of the trailer becoming detached from the towing vehicle.
