Tow bar to D-ring tabs

Can't find a tow bar that will mount to d-ring tabs, or even one that I can modify the hardware on.

Anybody have a tow bar that mounts to their d-ring tabs? Tell me how you did it.

Re: Tow bar to D-ring tabs

Thanks,

That might work if the spacing matches my D-ring tabs. Hopefully they reply to my e-mail.

Anyone have one and want to measure it?

Re: Tow bar to D-ring tabs

I have a Demco "Kwik-Tow" tow bar that I mount to my D-ring tabs. The width is adjustable and the arms fold completely together for storage. Because the tow bar has 1/2" holes and the tabs have 3/4" holes, I bought some flanged brass bushings with 3/4" OD and 1/2" ID to put in the D-ring holes and 1/2" bolts (grade 8) with nylock nuts and washers to bolt it together. Works great for me.
