Hitching Up


Wirral Tourer

Recommended Posts

As far as im aware its ok to hitch up at an angle, i havn't seen any info saying otherwise. i always thought that the friction pads slide around the towball so after pushing the handle down and pulling away the hitch will square it self up on the towball

To be honest I havn't gave it much thought really when hitching up

I'm not aware of any requirement to have the outfit in a straight line when hitching up.

 

Most of my hitching at home is at an angle anyway so as i can get off the drive ok and I can't say that I've ever encountered a problem.

 

Surely it can't make any difference can it? As Oscar says, it's no different to straightening up after going round a corner.

:rolleyes:

It's often better to hitch at a significant angle. This makes the initial movement much easier if it's on a gradient or if traction is difficult.

IF YOU ARE DROPPING A SEMICIRCULAR CUP(TOW HITCH) ONTO A CIRCULAR BALL (TOWBALL) IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE IF THE CAR IS AT AN ANGLE
