This genuine Roadmaster XL Series bracket is designed for solid towing performance with the ability to remove the visible portion of the bracket in seconds when you\'re not towing the vehicle. Simply remove the two hitch pins and remove the bracket to convert your car from towing to driving mode. This baseplate style accommodates Roadmaster tow bars and accessories (such as the Guardian Rock Shield) by utilizing the tow bar\'s crossbar and quick-disconnect system as a mounting platform. If you are using a Sterling or a car-mounted tow bar, you need this style of baseplate. This crossbar-style bracket requires a tow bar with a crossbar assembly. Roadmaster XL Series Tow Bar Brackets:

This design method uses powerful computers to simulate the stresses applied to the tow bar brackets and helps optimize the design to provide the best safety margin and performance. Each baseplate is also real-world tested to validate their safety and durability.
- Roadmaster tow bar brackets are custom made for specific vehicles to ensure easy installation and the best possible fit.
- Every baseplate is powder coated by baking particles of pigment onto the metal surface. This creates a glossy, uniform, and durable finish that will protect your tow bar bracket for years to come.
- Roadmaster is the fastest tow bar company at releasing brackets for new vehicles. They currently offer baseplates for over 2000 vehicle models.
