David Bowyer of Goodwinch joins forces with Pete Yates of bak-rak to bring to you a super range of accessories to hang onto either the rear of your vehicle, front if you can fit a tow ball on the front bumper, or the head of a trailer.
With various options, you can secure portable winches from 1,000 lbs to 9,500 lbs. Ideal for keeping handy when venturing out with the Caravan or Motorhome should the weather change for the worse and a steady pull could be most useful.
If you need to mount easily a pole with a flag, PA loudspeaker or sign, we have a mount for that too. Also ideal for mounting a high level camera system onto. A similar mount is designed for commercial and amateur radio antenna bases, be it satellite dish, VHF or HF mast and whip aerials. Larger masts for static use only! Even a picnic or work table can be installed in a jiffy. In fact, the list is endless, there must be a limitless number of things you can hang on a tow ball, wherever it is fitted!
For instance, you could install a tow ball at the top of a ramp, driveway or slipway to winch up dead vehicles, caravans or boats on trailers.
These strong and easy to use accessory modules are all centred on a unique component that converts the sphere of the 50mm tow ball (both standard tow balls and removable or fixed swan-neck types) to a shape that locks into a specially made hollow enclosure.
This unique sprung loaded ‘Clam Shell’ is made of cast stainless steel which grips the sphere of the tow ball. For winch mounts, the ‘Clam Shell’ rotates to allow the winch rope to be pulled square onto its drum. For most other applications, a 12mm setscrew or locking lever secures the module solid onto the tow ball at the desired angle.
When the winch mount is installed, a ready made up for the vehicle wiring harness is supplied with quick disconnect fittings.
All these (and more to follow) modules are so east to install. Simply drop the ‘Clam Shell’ over the tow ball, followed by the appropriate unit, locate the lock pin or similar device to secure the whole unit into place, tighten the 12mm setscrew or locking lever to stop it from rotating as required and it’s ready to use.
Brilliant concept brought into the world by Pete Yates with further module and kit designs by David Bowyer.
