    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product Firstly, do not be put off buying this tow pole when you read the manufacturer's guidelines. I guess it's really supposed to be a 'local' recovery option, but it's far more than that. Our son broke down about 175 miles from home and all the recovery services wanted in the region of £600-£700 to get him and his car home. So we bought this tow pole in the hope it would get him home, even if it was only good for the one trip. The guidelines state that the maximum towing speed is 15mph but, with some gentleness and care during braking and acceleration we managed an average speed of 40mph over the journey from Northampton to Dorset. The lead vehicle was a 4x4 and the towed vehicle had the engine running (so had brakes/steering/indicators) and both cars seemed very stable throughout the journey. The tow bar is great quality all-in-one kit. It's safe and very simple to put together and use, worked extremely well and shows absolutely no signs of wear after a very long journey. It comes apart into three sections which store neatly in the carry bag when not needed. The only thing that this tow pole could benefit from is a small rubber 'bumper moulded around each of the hooks. That would prevent a lot of noise and would stop the cars' paint from being knocked off of the towing points during use. I don't think I've ever bought a tool that has saved so much money and been so useful in a difficult situation. I'd certainly say it's a very useful item to carry just in case of breakdowns on long journeys or to get a car to a garage for repair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For the Job Car was off road and needed to be taken to a mechanics but didn't want to pay for a recovery as they can be expensive. So decided to look to see what my options were. This towing pole was an excellent option, very well built and easy to assemble and attach. Once attached all you have to do is steer, the pole does the rest of the work for you, no need to break either, especially useful if the car being towed isn't starting (no brakes). Only thing I would say is to be careful when places it on the floor while setting it up, the paint can come away if you're not careful which would need touching up to prevent rust. Nonetheless a perfect solution for towing.

    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 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
