product took 6 weeks to arrive since it was out of stock. It had a very sloppy fit between handle and body that the manufacturer will remedy by sending a new tow bar made with the correct tubing size.

I bought for my Cessna 150, its work good. just perfect.

Good construction, great finish that does not scrape off when extending and retracting the handle. It is a few inches short for my 172RG though, about 6 inches longer would be perfect. Overall a very good quality product for the price and, if I ever lose this one I would buy it again, maybe a slightly longer version would be available by then.
