All necessary screws and fasteners are included in the delivery. Approval from the Mines Service required. Depending on the vehicle model.General operating approval (ABE) and ECE - product certification (Homologation). Trailer hitches that have already been approved according to regulation 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's papers. What is the towing capacity? The towing capacity defines the maximum total weight allowed, with which a vehicle equipped with a suitable towbar can tow a trailer. Depending on the type and version of the vehicle (engine power), this may vary. You can find the maximum allowed trailer load for your vehicle on your registration certificate. Where can I find this entry in the vehicle documents? Depending on the age of the vehicle, you will find the value on the vehicle registration certificate. Take the value from area F.
3 and subtract it from the value in area F. In order to calculate the maximum towing capacity allowed for the vehicle. In exceptional cases, this value may be increased by calculation.
Please follow the instructions on the vehicle registration certificate - especially for slope indications. For the towbars we offer, you will find the maximum allowed trailer load of the trailer hitch in the technical data of the product view. Important: If the maximum towing load value of the vehicle and the trailer hitch are not the same, the lower value always applies.
Example: If a maximum towing load of 1,500 kg is indicated in the vehicle document, but the associated trailer hitch has a tested towing load of 1,800 kg, only 1,500 kg can still be towed. Under certain conditions, an increase in the 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 recorded in the documents of your vehicle at the registration office. The authorized towing load in kilograms can be determined as follows: Formula for calculating value D: (Total weight Towing capacity 9.81) / (Total weight + Towing capacity) Formula for calculating towing capacity: (value D total weight) / (total weight 9.81 - value D) Formula for calculating total weight: (value D trailer load) / (trailer load 9.81 - value D) Formula for calculating static weight according to the 4% rule: Towing capacity 0.04 GF = (authorized total weight of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration D = (value D in kN) see towbar 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 visible bumper cutouts and non-visible bumper cutouts. This depends individually on the design of the bumper. Trailer hitch manufacturers always try to avoid bumper cutouts.
If this is not possible, the cutout is limited to what is strictly necessary. If the bumper needs to be modified, you can always find it in the respective installation instructions for the item. If a cutout is necessary, you will also find the dimensions or a template that defines the size of the desired cutout. Tip: For the cutout, use a jigsaw with a fine saw blade, as it allows you to work with the plastic very easily and especially accurately.
To make the cut edges smooth again, you can carefully heat them with a lighter. Professionals can also do this with a Bunsen burner or a "Blue-Fire".
But keep enough distance to be able to shape perfectly. The maximum weight that can be applied vertically from above to the towball of the trailer hitch. The authorized vertical load of the vehicle can be found in the vehicle manual under "use of a trailer". The maximum static weight of each towbar device is indicated on the approval plate and in the installation instructions.
Tip: If you want to mount a bike carrier with an electric bike on your trailer hitch, you must pay attention to a high static weight. Important: What if the vertical load values between the vehicle and the trailer hitch are not the same?
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 value of the trailer hitch is decisive. In this example, it would be 60 kg. In this case, the lower value always applies. This value of a trailer hitch is expressed in Kilo-Newtons and serves as a basis for calculating the permissible trailer load. The value D is determined and verified once and therefore remains unchanged.
Only the value D and the authorized vertical load are indicated on the approval plate of the trailer hitch. The indication of value D allows the determination of the bandwidth during a modification inspection according to § 19 (3) StVZO (German Road Traffic Regulations).For example, it is possible to modify the authorized total weight by varying the towed load accordingly, without a new inspection. The required value D according to directive 94/20/EC can be determined as follows: GF = (authorized total weight of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration GA = (authorized trailer load of the vehicle in kg) see vehicle registration. What is a foldable socket holder? The socket is mounted on a support plate with an articulation and can be folded under the bumper. This is not mandatory, but simply an improvement in appearance.
Many removable and swiveling trailer hitches are equipped with foldable sockets. We even have a few rigid towbars with this feature in our range. Info: The construction of a towbar device with a foldable socket support plate depends on the presence of sufficient space between the cross tube of the towbar and the rear part of the vehicle.Is an inspection at the technical inspection necessary? Almost all trailer hitches in our assortment have an approval plate and are therefore tested according to the directive "94/20". Such a towbar can be used on public roads without further inspection. According to Article 27, Paragraph 1 of the StVZO (German Road Traffic Regulations), a trailer hitch retrofitted with an approval plate must only be added during the "next vehicle paper consultation" at the registration office.
However, according to Clause 1a, any possible modification of the authorized trailer load resulting from the installation of the towbar must be reported without delay. After the installation of a trailer hitch requiring an individual inspection at the technical inspection, we provide a certificate, with which you must have an individual inspection carried out after the installation. You will receive a document with which you must immediately register the change on your vehicle papers at the registration office. National brand (M, F, N).
The same procedures as for the individual technical inspection apply here. The only difference is that these trailer hitches have a permanently assigned approval certification. Info: A towbar device that has been tested according to EC 94/20 fulfills the following criteria: - The trailer hitch has a valid approval plate with all necessary data - The distance between the towball and the bumper and the road surface complies with the regulations. The construction has passed the endurance test with 2 million load changes. All prescribed attachment points by the vehicle manufacturer have been respected.
Important: The 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 itself.
This time is exclusively limited to the installation of the product. This time does not take into account, for example, the installation or fitting 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 poles, is always fixed 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 registration. An approval plate must contain the following information: - Diameter of the towball - Approval number - Serial or manufacturing data - Static load in kg - Value D in kN - Type Info: Feel free to ask us for the corresponding document.
