    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I had invested some credibility in the AA name/brand. However, when it came to assemble it, I had to file some of the holes to get the components to fit. Luckily I was at home, rather than out somewhere, or I wouldn't have been able to assemble it. A further heads up, if you have a towbar, make sure that the factory towing eyes haven't been removed in the towbar fitting process. Otherwise you have a nice door prop...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I didn't want towing charges of £100 plus for a 1 mile journey to my local garage. Having used a rigid tow bar in the 70s for many work vans i knew it would work. Being a VW Camper i removed anything not bolted down to reduce the weight to the legal tow vehicle requirement and 2 Tonne towing bar limit. Still at 2.2 tonne (not recomended) the AA rigid tow bar had no problems even a steep upward hill was light work. 15 mph was comfortable for 1 mile in traffic and i still felt we could of traveled faster with no traffic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is good for use The towing pole is good for short trips. I was planning to use it for a trip to my mechanic but it would of been a 2.5 hr journey as it was only able to go at 25kmp/h so ended up getting a tow truck instead but it will be handy to have for any future use

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for good price Easy assembly bag with sign"ON TOW" fits perfectly on rear wiperblade arm but like to flapping on strong winds.both drivers were happy with spring .Could benefit from opportunity to attach on someones tow bar.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made for the price I was dubious about this because it was so cheap, but it worked really well and it a strong steel

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bent on the first use Its made from weak thin 3mm wall tube and the pieces that keep the hooks on the car once bolted tight do not go full width of the hook so theres still a chance of failure. On the first use while towing my car home it bent under gentle braking down hill mostly the material quality and partially the damper doesn't really do alot so it was roughly £30 or so wasted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't get anything better on a Sunday afternoon. I needed a tow pole on a Sunday afternoon and this was easily the best option I had. If I could have waited a couple of days then I would have got a pole elsewhere as they can be cheaper. Didn't have any problems doing a couple of tows, one was about 20 miles at around 50mph. So, so, so much better than towing with a rope. Not convinced with the sprung feature. In my opinion it's not needed and may make the pole weaker than a solid one. Saying that, the pole's rated for 2 tonnes so no dramas. I like the bag that doubles up as an "On Tow" sign. Pro tip: Cut the box that everything comes in so it fits inside the bag. It stops it flapping about when on the back of the car.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you! Brilliant product, made a nerve racking task feel so much safer, literally all you have to do is steer. Having been towed previously on a rope that i not only ran over but then snapped, this was an absolute joy! Couldn't be happier. Was a bit fiddly to put it all together on the vehicles, but that was only to be expected. I would recommend this to anyone, especially to people with no experience of being towed or who are a bit nervous of it, it totally set my mind at rest from the word go. Well done, and reasonable price too!
