A Review:
“This is the 4th Brackett tow bar that Ive purchased over the past 20 years. Disappointed that the TH5B
was discontinued and replaced with the TH6. The TH6 lacks the sturdy feel of the TH5, especially
when the bar is opened wide. You can see the reasoning in the change: fewer parts, easier to manufacture,
cheaper to make. In execution however one gets the sense that they overpaid for the TH6, whereas the TH5
felt like a relative bargain. Will it work? Yes. Would I recommend it over a TH53 or a used TH5B? No.”


Willing to deliver for expenses.
