Much better than the original tow bar which slipped loose just about every time I tried to turn the nose wheel. Simple design, but it works.

The extra length of this tow bar makes moving my aircraft much easier. It moves the handle from underneath the propeller allowing for better vision and leverage.

Threw my 1967 original tow bar in the garbage after I received and tried out the new one. No more broken teeth from the old one slipping out of the holes and my face hitting the propeller spinner LOL

Use this with my PA-28 140 it fits perfect! I like that it easily locks in place to ensure no slipping and is just as easy to remove. I am 100% satisfied with this tow bar.

Happy to get this TowBar purchased during my busines trip in USA, even more I was happy that this was well fitting in my luggage so no problems to bring it home in Finland. Quality of TowBar looks good painting work can be bit better.

Great transaction, towbar was as advertised and came quickly. My only caveat is that for a Saratoga with wheel fairings/skirts, the adapter needs to be cut down as the prongs are too long and hit the tops of the fairings and would damage in use. Also, this unit will not fit into the factory mount in the plane, need to modify, we used velcro straps.

Fits PA32 steering connection securely and doesnt come off until you want it too! My particular item has a slight defect, probably manufacturing, the handle telescopes and uses a pin to secure in either, use length or storage length. Pin only fits through all holes when bar is oriented one way. I have marked it for quick reference now! I thought it was some sort of joke when I first got it and tried to insert pin with no success, then rotating inner pole 180 degrees it fit. Spruce CS referred me to manufacturer and manufacturer said Spruce has to make exchange because you bought it from them all this after extended time on hold which is when I figured out the error.
