Bogi-Bar Tow bar brackets for baggage bulkhead. All flanges, webs and hooks are printed solidly. Option to drill uppmost brackets for a retaining pin (suggested pin diameter .25 inch and McMaster-Carr P/N below) or choose your own pins or opt for no pins. The pin hole location is dimpled on the backside of the bracket to locate. Option to purchase with holes and pins included is available. Compact design, easy to install, easy to stow tow bar. The baggage area can be a busy place at times, the brackets were designed to be as snag free as possible and are robust. Material is UV resistant plastic. Mounts to the same screw locations as the bulkhead. Six AN525-832-R10 screws are included for installation. These parts are printed with a large nozzle for economy so the finish is not as smooth as our other parts but they are very strong. Time to install = 5 minutes.
There has been noted manufactured dimensional variation in the Bogi-bar free condition clamp end outer dimension by some users. A new tow bar average clamp end outer dimension on bars we have measured = 10.31 inch and deforms an additional .125 inch after two years of use. It is best to measure your bar and select the best range size. This range only affects the lower bracket design.
The clamp end outer dimension ranges are: (see photo for measurement location)
Normal clearance = 10 - 10.6 inch
Intermediate clearance = 9.6 - 10.75 inch
High clearance = 9.4 - 10.85 inch
The installed brackets side to side orientation can be reversed to orient the tow bar handle direction downwards, if desired.
