    Default Breakaway cable on detachable towbar

    I have the genuine Vx towbar on my Signum which is superb but unfortunately there's nowhere obvious to attach the breakaway cable to. Its not normally recommended to loop it round the towball itself. Does anyone know if theres any brackets that can be fitted to the detachable section to secure the cable to, or does anyone know of any other solutions?
    Cheers,
    Decho

    I have this trouble on my fixed towbar. Still haven't found a suitable point on the car. Tried using a tie down loop (for transporters - or can be used with a rope to tow a car), but couldn't find one / reach anything.

    Bit poor IMO. Wasn't long enough either to loop round the towbar cross member and not the hitch

    I have the Genuine Vauxhall detchable towbar on my Signum, there is a bracket welded to the tow bar itself to the right of where the ball attaches.

    This is I beleive for the breakaway cable. It is where I attach mine anyway, just had to used another small cable as an adaptor as I don't think the stanard cable gives enough length.

    Do you have twin electrics? on mine this bracket is used for the second socket, which doesn't swivel like the first - stupid really as otherwise this is such a neat towbar.
