Research and Development
Over the years I have used many different types of tow bars. Some were good, some not so good. I found myself wanting a light but strong tow bar.  I searched for hours and could not find anything I liked so I decided to make my own. After making it several people liked it, made suggestions and we are marketing our current version. The price range we are looking at is $250.00-$350.00 depending on options included. 
It pulls a Cessna 210 with no problem
Because of the tow bar's light weight we have been questioned about it's strength.  We have thought about testing it however a customer beat us to it.  He exceeded the tow limit on his airplane and bent the bar and the attach bolt. Answered that question.
When Quality Counts
The final version. PN CA459-1 
For Now
A while back a brace thought to be important broke off due to a bad weld. After using it anyway with good results and the test by our customer we discovered it to be unnecessary.

Had an order for a towbar with the Piper and Beech adapters. Wondering if this would be a good way to keep up with them. Could come as a kit for existing towbars.
