Blue Ox with a Protect-A-Tow

I had the support bar from the Protect-A-Tow jump up and land on top of the release lever on my Blue Ox tow bar. When I pulled into a rest ares one of the arms on the tow bar collapsed. It pulled the toad to one side. I shortened the loop that holds the Protect-A-Tow net up. I have been using it for 4 years and the elastic line must have stretched out. It was windy that day and that may have been a factor.

Thanks for posting, this is something else to check when getting ready to depart. Did anything get damaged?

No damage, the tow bar arm retracted just as I was parking. I as glad I found this in the rest area rather than a panic stop. I just happen to catch it at the rest area I don't know if it was doing this while driving down the road and then fixed its self.
