Blue ox parts

I have an old blue ox Alvena Lx tow bar system. It has a single tab that goes into the base plate on my toad. The hole the the pin goes through has worn to where it is a little sloppy. Not a real big deal but I would like to replace the end part on the tow bar that contains this single blade. Blue ox does not sell them any longer. Anyone know where I can buy some? Found some for the with the three prong end but don't know if they will work on my base plate. Thanks in advance for any help.

safe travels all

As a suggestion...I would not mess with Blue Ox tow bars that show ANY signs of wear. Trust me they DO break. Blue Ox no longer has parts for a reason, they no longer service that tow bar. Personally, I would never own another Blue Ox product after the way I was treated when mine broke. Loosing a toad while towing is not worth it. JMO

I don't know if it would help you or not,but I have an older blue Ox tow bar that has damage to the left hand fork end. It came loose during a tow,and drug on the road for a while. It is still functional and I replaced the bolt. The rest of the towbar is fine. I would sell you the whole thing for $100 Plus shipping if you are interested.

Just let me know via private message.
Thanks

Bill

Thanks for the offer. Blue ox said they make a 3 prong replacement for the old style single one. I ordered them but if something happens they don't work I'll let ya know.
