Type Approved according to 94/20/EC/ECE-R-55. Detachable ball without vertical tool. It is possible that the vehicle engine cooling may not be sufficient for towing. In this case, it may be necessary to replace certain parts of the cooling system.

We are happy to help you check if your vehicle has the necessary preparations, please contact us with the chassis number in view. All necessary screws and fixing parts are included in the delivery. Authorization from the Mines Service is necessary. Depending on the vehicle model. General operating approval (ABE) and ECE - product certification (Homologation).

Trailer hitches already approved according to ECE 55 or previously 94/20/E have already been tested according to European standards. They comply with CE directives, are tested and approved for the French market. It is not necessary to have the towbar approved by an expert or inspector after installation or to have it registered on the vehicle papers. What is the towable weight? The towable weight defines the maximum total weight allowed, with which a vehicle equipped with a suitable tow bar can tow a trailer.

Depending on the type and version of the vehicle (engine power), this may vary. You can find the maximum authorized trailer load for your vehicle on your registration document. Where can I find this entry in the vehicle documents? Depending on the age of the vehicle, you will find the value in the vehicle registration document. Take the value from zone F. 3 and subtract it from the value in zone F. In order to calculate the maximum authorized towable weight for the vehicle.

In exceptional cases, this value can be increased by calculation. Please observe the information on the vehicle registration document - especially for slope information. For the towbars we offer, you will find the maximum authorized trailer load of the trailer hitch in the technical data of the product view.

Important: If the maximum towing capacity value of the vehicle and the trailer hitch are not identical, the lower value always applies. Example: If a maximum trailer load of 1,500 kg is indicated in the vehicle document, but the associated towbar has a tested trailer load of 1,800 kg, only 1,500 kg can still be towed. Under certain conditions, an increase in trailer load may be requested for the vehicle. This requires approval from the respective vehicle manufacturer, for example Audi, BMW, Mercedes... The vehicle must then be presented to an expert. With the test certificate you receive from them, you can have the change entered in your vehicle documents at the registration office.

The authorized trailer load in kilograms can be determined as follows: Formula for calculating value D: (Total weight Towable weight 9.81) / (Total weight + Towing capacity). Towable weight calculation formula: (value D total weight) / (total weight 9.81 - value D).

Total weight calculation formula: (value D trailer load) / (trailer load 9.81 - value D). Static mass calculation formula according to the 4% rule: Towable weight 0.04 GF = (authorized total vehicle weight in kg) see vehicle registration D = (value D in kN) see hitch nameplate/installation instructions. What is a bumper cutout?

When cutting the bumper, a piece of the bumper is cut out on the rear part of the vehicle. It is important to note that there are bumper cutouts in the visible area and in the non-visible area. This depends individually on the bumper design. Trailer hitch brand manufacturers always strive to avoid bumper cutouts. If this is not possible, the cutout is limited to the bare minimum.

If the bumper must be modified, you can always find it in the respective installation instructions of the article. If a cutout is necessary, you will also find the dimensions or a template defining the desired cutout size. Tip: For cutting, use a jigsaw with a fine saw blade, as it allows you to work with plastic very easily and above all with precision. To ensure that the cutting edges are smooth again, you can gently heat them with a lighter.

Professionals can also do this with a Bunsen burner or a "Blue-Fire". But keep enough distance to shape perfectly. What is the static weight? The maximum weight that can be applied vertically from the top on the trailer hitch ball. The vehicle's authorized vertical load can be found in the vehicle manual under "trailer use".

The maximum static mass of each towbar device is indicated on the approval plate and in the installation instructions. Tip: If you want to mount a rear bike carrier with an electric bike on your trailer hitch, you must absolutely pay attention to a high static weight. Important: What if the vertical load values between the vehicle and the trailer hitch are not identical? Example: If the manufacturer has allowed a maximum vertical load of 75 kg for the vehicle and the trailer hitch has an approved vertical load of 60 kg, the hitch value is decisive. In this example, it would be 60 kg.

In this case, the lowest value always applies. This value of a trailer hitch is expressed in Kilo-Newton and serves as the basis for calculating the permissible trailer load. The value D is determined and checked once and remains unchanged.

Only the value D and the authorized vertical load are indicated on the trailer hitch approval plate. The indication of value D determines the bandwidth when receiving a modification according to § 19 (3) StVZO (German road traffic regulations).

It is for example possible to modify the authorized total weight by adjusting the towing load accordingly, without a new inspection. The required value D according to directive 94/20/EC can be determined as follows: GF = (authorized total vehicle weight in kg) see vehicle registration GA = (authorized towing load of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration.

What is a foldable socket holder? The socket is mounted on a support plate with a hinge and can be folded under the bumper. It is not mandatory, but simply an improvement in visual appearance. Many detachable and swivel trailer hitches are equipped with retractable sockets.

We even have some rigid towbars with this feature in our range. Info: The construction of a towbar device with a foldable socket holder depends on the presence of sufficient space between the cross tube of the towbar and the rear part of the vehicle.

Almost all trailer hitches in our range have an approval plate and are therefore checked according to the "94/20" directive. Such a towbar can be used on public roads without subsequent expertise. According to Article 27, paragraph 1 of the StVZO (German road traffic regulations), a towbar retrofitted with an approval plate should only be added during the "next vehicle registration document review" at the registration office. However, in accordance with clause 1a, any possible modification of the authorized towing load resulting from the installation of the towbar device must be reported without delay.

After fitting a towbar requiring an individual inspection to the technical inspection agency, we provide a certificate, with which you must have an individual inspection carried out after installation. You will receive a document with which you must immediately have the change entered in your vehicle documents at the registration office. National brand (M, F, N). The same terms as for the individual technical inspection procedure apply here. The only difference is that these trailer hitches have a permanently assigned approval certification.

Info: A towbar that has been tested according to EC94/20 meets the following criteria: - the trailer hitch has a valid approved plate with all necessary data - the distance between the ball and the bumper and the ground complies with regulations. The construction has passed the dynamic endurance test with 2 million load changes. All prescribed fixing locations by the vehicle manufacturer have been respected.

Important: Installation instructions must be included with the vehicle papers and must be in the vehicle! What is the installation time? The installation time of a towbar is indicated by the towbar manufacturer. This time is limited solely to the installation of the product. This time does not take into account, for example, the installation or attachment of the bumper.

Tips to avoid calculation errors, calculate the specified indicative values with a factor of two. Experience shows that this comes closest to the actual installation time. What is a socket support plate? The socket, whether 7 or 13 pins, is always attached to the socket support plate with 3 screws. Some trailer hitches are even equipped with a folding function.

What is an approval plate? Each towbar device must be equipped with an approval plate in order not to invalidate the vehicle's circulation permit. An approval plate must contain the following information: - Tow ball diameter - Approval number - Series or manufacturing data - Static mass kg - Value D in kN - Type Info: Feel free to ask us for the corresponding document.

When using a bicycle or a cargo carrier, it is necessary to install extension #190648#. Only then will the rear fog light of the vehicle automatically turn off, as required by law. Compatible with additional kit for more permanency. More permanent integrated, pin 9. Connection to the trailer socket. The socket allows connection to the trailer plug and ensures electrical connection between the car and the trailer. What does 7 pins mean? A simple connection that is sufficient to meet legal requirements.

Like all 7-pin harnesses, special functions such as a permanent power supply or reverse lights (on the trailer) are not possible. What does 13 pins mean? This is a waterproof connector with simple handling. In the meantime, this variant has become the standard for original equipment.

Signaling functions and permanent power supply or reverse lights can be transmitted without any problem. Additional free pins are also available and offer useful options, especially in the camping field. What is an original connector? Connections between the vehicle and the electrical kit are made using existing connectors, which eliminates any wiring errors.

What is a diagnostics tool required? Modern electrical kits are equipped with trailer control modules capable of exchanging data with the vehicle control units. Some functions, such as deactivating parking sensors, trailer stabilization, and deactivating rear fog lights, only work when both control units have learned to communicate with each other. A corresponding coding on the vehicle using a diagnostic tester is therefore necessary.

The current driving situation of the car is monitored by sensors installed on the vehicle. Once the trailer plug is connected, the vehicle recognizes the "trailer" operating mode and monitors all dynamic movements of the vehicle.

If the trailer is in a critical state, the vehicle's onboard computer assists the driver in regaining control of the situation. Info: - TSP, Trailer-Stability-Program - TSM, Trailer-Sway-Mitigation - TSA, Trailer-Stability-Assist Technical Note: Trailer stabilization only works if an electrical kit assists it. To do this, the electrical kit must be registered in the car's data bus system through activation. Vehicles without TSP as standard cannot be equipped with this function using a kit compatible with TSP.

What is a universal harness? A universal electrical kit is suitable for different brands and types of vehicles, but is not specific to any particular model. Key features: - Connection is made to the power wires. Each wire's functions must be identified.

The wiring must be shortened or lengthened if necessary. The installation instructions do not refer to vehicle-specific characteristics. Tip: Whenever possible, always buy a vehicle-specific electrical kit, as installation errors are almost eliminated.

What is a specific harness? A specific electrical harness has been specially developed for a particular vehicle. Before marketing a specific electrical kit, a test installation is carried out on the vehicle concerned to ensure its proper functioning. Typical properties: - pre-designed connectors - exact cable lengths - installation instructions describe all necessary work steps in text or pictograms to ensure correct installation.

Info: There are vehicle-specific electrical kits that also fit several vehicle models, as vehicles are often built on the same platform, regardless of the manufacturer! Advice: Specific electrical kits save installation time and therefore money. What does a pre-assembled plug mean? One end of the cable harness is already connected to the socket.

This facilitates installation and saves valuable installation time. What does a plug with screw terminals mean? The socket insert has connection slots for cable attachment, which make contact using a screw terminal. What does a plug with crimp terminals mean? In the case of a crimp plug, the wires are already installed in the contact carrier. This results in a gas-tight compression of the cable with the contact plug, ensuring an optimal contact connection.

What does deactivation of rear fog lights mean? When deactivating the rear fog lights system, the rear fog lights of the towing vehicle are turned off. It does not matter if the trailer has its own fog lights system.

Note: When using a rear bike carrier with its own lighting units, it is mandatory that the rear fog light of the car is deactivated (in Germany). The Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus technology is the technical term for a special type of data transmission in a vehicle. It manages the electronic network of a modern car and connects most control devices.

Info: A modern car contains up to 70 control units for exchanging data between them, which then enable the best functions. It is a bulb failure check that indicates to the driver, on the dashboard, by a visual symbol, a malfunctioning light such as turn signals, brake lights, etc.

What does a flasher relay or indicator relay mean? Flasher relays are also called indicator relays and are responsible for transmitting the flashing impulse to the vehicle's turn signals or, if applicable, to the trailer's turn signals. In case of malfunction, the flashing frequency changes. What does a trailer computer mean?

The trailer computer partially or completely regulates the trailer's lighting. The impulse usually comes from the vehicle's rear lights, which the control unit transmits to the trailer. What does trailer detection mean? Trailer detection functions to inform the towing vehicle whether a trailer or a bike carrier is attached. This is often done using a microswitch integrated into the power socket.

What does a C2 lamp mean? The C2 lamp is an additional green lamp. It must be placed on the dashboard, in the driver's field of vision. Info: On certain types of vehicles, a C2 lamp is already equipped to be operated by the flasher relay.

Practical: In trailer mode, the C2 lamp flashes at the same time as the standard turn signal lamp. Even without a trailer, it can flash up to three times, but it must then go out! What does a wiring diagram mean? In the wiring diagram of a 7- or 13-pole socket, it is defined which cable occupies which socket contact. Cable identification is done by colors.

The socket contacts are identified by numbers and letters. What does a microswitch mean? A microswitch is a small electrical switch that is integrated into the electrical kit's power socket. It can be used for different functions, for example: deactivation of the EPH, trailer detection, etc.

What does a central connector mean? Some vehicles are already prepared to receive a "factory electrical kit". In such cases, there is one or more central connectors, which are ready to serve as a connection point for the trailer cable set. What does a permanent power supply mean? The additional permanent power supply is a continuous 12-volt voltage that ensures a constant current to contact "no.

9" and is only possible for 13-pin trailer sockets according to DIN/ISO 11446. What does a charging cable mean? A battery in the trailer can be charged with a charging cable while driving. This works via contact "no.

10", a 13-pin socket according to DIN/ISO 11446. As soon as the contact is cut, the power supply is interrupted by a cut-off relay. More offers for this type of trailer hitch. We distribute articles from the following manufacturers.
