Al-ko® Jockey Wheel Manoeuvring Handle
Al-ko® manoeuvring handle suits all 48mm OD jockey wheels.
The two-piece Al-ko® jockey wheel handles grip screws together, clamping snugly to all 48mm diameter jockey wheels.
This handle is essentially a European design that is picking up popularity ion Australia.
Couplemate recommends lowering the jockey wheel before re-positioning the caravan or camper. The higher position acts as a fulcrum and tends to bend the stem.
Lower manoeuvring handle positions are more successful, however, if your rig is set up with a stem stabiliser like the image above then the fulcrum effect is negated.
Personally, I would love to install a manoeuvring handle on my 60mm auto retract. Sadly, the stem OD is too large.
Ideal: the perfect complement to the jockey wheel
Uncoupled trailers are more comfortable to move using the Al-ko® handle. Furthermore, this handle also prevents loss of the jockey wheel when towing in case of a loose locking bar.
The maneuvering handle fits all Manutec, Ark and Alko® jockey wheels with an outer tube diameter of 48 mm. Measure the width of your jockey wheel before ordering.
- Prevents the jockey wheel slipping while driving and secures against loss
- Simple fitting on the outer tube of the jockey wheel with four screws
