If you have a bad back or think you could have a bad back, these tow out bars are great.
Compared with the standard LS8 tail Dollie and tow out bar itís a great improvement. You avoid a nasty lift putting on the tail Dollie because of the handy u shaped tail lifting device. And there is no lifting to put the tow out bar onto the car. So thatís two lifts saved x 2 every time you move your glider ( two to attach to car and two to remove the kit.)
Another great advantage is you donít have to risk damaging the rudder by reversing the car right up to the tow out bar, thanks to the cleaver extension mechanism.
The only downside it it is a bit bulky for storage in a car boot or trailer. But the advantages outweigh that.
The alternative design weight bears on the tail Dollie wheel but I was nervous about my wheel being up to the job. And this heavy duty model gets the tail Dollie wheel off the ground and is cheaper than an optional £150 tail wheel upgrade.
Ollie at Nav Boys was very helpful as always.
Would I give it back for a full refund? Certainly not. A good investment to save the lifting.
