Behind the Ball Mounting

Regular price £58.00

Spare Behind the Ball Mounting Block. The Behind the Ball Mounting Block is designed to fit between the towing bracket and tow ball of a standard two bolt flange tow bar.

The Behind the Ball Mounting Block is very strong, sturdy and secure. 

Please note that Behind the Ball and Ball Mounting racks are not interchangeable.

Towing may be possible whilst carrying bikes using a behind the ball tow bar mounting but this depends on which rack is purchased. 

 

The product descriptions will state whether you can tow with the particular rack.

 

If you are going to tow with one of our behind the ball racks fitted, we recommend that no more than 2 bikes are placed on the rack and you should always check that your turning circle will not interfere with the bike rack loaded with and without bikes before you set off on your journey. 

 

Please note that the block is supplied with fitting for an electrical socket. 

 

Choose the correct version to match whether you have single or double light sockets, we include a bracket for fitting them to the mounting block.

Ball Mounting

 

Will fit: Swan neck, detachable and Mounting standard 2 bolt flange tow bars.

A universal mount that fits around the tow ball and consists of two parts which are bolted securely together – the first part contains the sockets which the bike rack arms fit into and the second part is a back plate so the two components sandwich around the tow ball. Both parts are moulded inside to the shape of a tow ball to give a perfectly sturdy, secure fit. Due to the way this fits around the ball you will be unable to tow when the mounting is in place. 

Behind-the-ball Mounting

 

Will fit: Standard 2 bolt flange tow bars only. 

A standard mount that fits securely between the tow ball and towing bracket of standard 2 bolt flange tow bars. Ideal for people wanting to tow while carrying their bikes. Please read individual rack descriptions, as not all racks are suitable for towing. When towing with a Pendle Bike Rack we advise that a maximum of two bikes are carried and that individuals check their towing set-up and turning circles with the rack and bikes fitted, before setting off on their journey.
