Changes to ADR Tow Balls
It is not practical to change ADR tested tow balls due to the high compliance cost. Tow balls must ve re-tested once changes occur.
It is wise to purchase your tow ball and then design your gooseneck setup.
The gooseneck coupling that suits this ball is the CM520.

Coupling installers need to consider the strength of the towbar or bedplate and the rating and certification of the coupling before installation. Towball collars are available to strengthen the bedplate.
When you purchase from Couplemate Trailer Parts, your CRN identification number is on your Invoice. The CRN on the approval letter will be the same CRN on your Invoice.
Show vehicle inspectors this invoice during inspections of your trailer or vehicle if required.
Furthermore, if you are buying a similar product without a CRN and your trailer or vehicle is older than July 2009, therefore, it is not legal to use on Australian roads.
