Towbar Wiring Socket
As a technician, having a reliable and high-quality socket is crucial for ensuring safe and efficient towing. Wiring sockets are an essential component of any vehicle's electrical system, allowing for the transmission of signals between the car and the trailer.
Electric socket types
There are various types of socket kits for vehicles available on the market, each with its own unique features and benefits. The 7-pin socket is used when essential light functions are required, for example, indicators. A 13-pin socket is required when further additional features are required, for example, reverse light and power for a caravan.
A towbar adapter may be needed to connect a 13-pin plug to a car with a 7-pin socket and a 7-pin plug to a car with a 13-pin socket.
