It works perfectly. I only suggest two tweaks...the upper an lower half should be a little tighter so it isn't so sloppy, and just above the connection points, it should have some padding to protect wheel pants in case of an accidental drop. Other than that, its great.

Useless for Cessna 177RG
The bar doesn’t open wide enough on a Cessna 177RG, so it’s useless to me

Pin holders don't line up
Despite reading reviews about the pin holders not lining up, I decided to make the purchase anyway. As I read, my experience is the same with the pin holders just a bit off. Still usable, and with a little adjusting seems to work good enough to get my plane in and out of the hanger. I'd still recommend the product, just know that you may have to make some minor adjustments to line up the pin holders.

Good, heavy duty tool
Nicer than original furnished w C-210. Could be a little stiffer spring in order to 'open' a little easier. Worth the $$.

Does anyone know how wide the tow bar spreads. I want to use this on an Capetown amphib that has a 6" aisle nut to nut??
A shopper on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes it should work
Does it have 5/8" holes or 7/8" ?
Danette B on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 7/8" holes
Would the clasps be large enough for the tailwheel nuts on a Cessna 180? I have a towbar that fits a Cessna 210 but the gripping part/tube is too small for the axle nut.
triggergapflyer on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't use it on a 180, on use it on a Cessna 182....I'm estimating here, I think it is a little narrow for what you are wanting to use it for- but I am not positive. The metal is lightweight also, if you were using it on something too wide, I think it would be hard on this tow bar (not good for the metal clasp).
