Preparing work before towing a car

  • An 'On Tow'      sign must be displayed at the rear of the vehicle being towed. And you'll      be pleased to know that all Halfords tow ropes and towing poles are      supplied with an 'On Tow' sign that you can use.

  • Inspect the      tow rope or towing pole for any damage, defects or abrasion before you use      it. Do not use a damaged tow rope or towing pole.

  • On the towed      car, leave the ignition switch in the 'on' position to disengage the      steering lock. Vehicles with power steering and/or power-assisted brakes      (most modern vehicles) will require much more strength and effort to      operate when being towed if the engine isn't running.
