Cons: didn't fit!
" Bought this to tow a car that had no brakes- a Volvo V40. The connection is via a shackle bolt, and the towing eye on the front of the Volvo was too big to allow the holes to line up and accept the bolt. In the end I had to return it for a full refund, but that still meant I couldn't tow the car and I had the bother of taking another trip to the store to return it.
I would not recommend this product!

" I used this to tow my wifes car about 11miles along an A road keeping an ave speed of 40-50mph. The bar worked excellent easy to fit and easy to take apart. With a bar gives so much more protection than a rope! This bar helps with breaking which if the tow car is lacking you will need? "

" Bought to tow a Toyota Rav4 with a Golf. It fitted the Golf towing hook but didn't have enough room between the tow bar and it's fitting to get the Toyota Rav4 hook in. So had to return the product which was taken back without any hassle. "
