Protective plug for the towbar

29. März 2016 um 10:47

protective plug Protective plugs used to be obligatory for towbars, those plugs used to be important parts of the towbar and prevented the pollution of the housing when the detachable towbar had been removed.

In the course of a product  innovation of our detachable towbar the housing H2 has been redeveloped. Housing H2 is responsible for the automatic locking device when fitting. Most characterizing for the housig H2 is that no protective plug is needed anymore. On the contrary, a protective plug would only promote the accumulation of dirt in the housing. Hence, the locking device would be disrupted.

How to recognize whether a protective plug is needed or not

If a protective plug is needed, a note will be published in the assembly instructions. All parts needed for your towbar are listed there. If no protective plug is listed there, none is needed for your towbar. Also, this can be seen in the operating instructions for the system 2020 and 2040 marked with a red cross.

Cut-outs for the towbar

cut-outsBefore buying a towbar, a lot of research is done. In an ideal situation, one finds a towbar which is not only convenient but also easy in handling, and at the same time matches the design of the car and fits perfectly. Many towbars require encroachments in the design of the car, such as cut-outs in the bumper or the like. This is different with MVG-towbars.


Retrofitting without cut-outs

MVG-towbars are designed without any cut-outs and do not interfere with the car design or the bumpers. On the contrary, every knee-joint bar as well as the system are flexibely adjusted to the car and can be installed without cut-outs concerning the car in most cases. This in due to the fact that MVG-systems do not collidate with the bumper but are constructed around the bumper.

In our video you can see an example of one of the few cars where an irreducable cut-out is needed. Normally, cut-outs are not needed for MVG-towbars.
