We have a witter detachable tow bar and the latest stabiliser hitch and it works perfectly - we were never told to get anything else.
BUT remove the paint from the tow ball before you first tow - and don't be tempted to grease the tow ball but I'm sure other will advise as well

That's quite right but just to add as well that an Alko towball has extra clearance directly under the ball to allow the hitch to swivel and the detachable towball also has that as well so is 100% compatible to connect up with a stabiliser hitch.
Hi Anne, I have posted a Youtube link with reference to the application and removal of the Witter 'Quantum' towball which may be identical to yours. If it's a different model the fitting should be somewhat identical. Hope this helps.

I have the Witter detachable swan neck and they can stick sometimes. I have had to get a pair of pipe grips to get just a little more pressure to turn the lock release other times it's quite easy. A lot of it is just getting the hang of it. If leaving it on the car after unhooking make sure you lock it on with the key, they are quite weighty and an easy way of getting some scrap money !
