Overall Length: 31.5"
Used on my 180 for 9 years. Works well. Can see to push into hanger because of additional length. Need to secure spring loaded locking mechanism before use or it will slip out. If I had wd 40d it instead of ignoring it, maybe it wouldnt slip😊
Functional, but a little short for comfort.
TOWBAR PIPER CHEROKEE SNAP-LOC
I agree with Bobs comment on the fit. Had to modify the claw to fit better for my Archer II. The upwards angle was too great and pins were loose in the nose wheels attachment holes creating side to side slop when trying to turn the wheel.
On the first unit received, the box was labeled wrong, A new unit was shipped to replace the incorrect one. The one received has to be modified to work correctly on our Archer with wheel pants on.
It’s way too short, wish I had gotten a longer one for my Piper Cherokee. Also it easily pops out of the holes it’s supposed to lock into, especially when turning. I avoid using it when possible.
