Safety Alert: Bolt-in Tow-Eye Security results in changes to COF B inspections

NZTA has recently released a Safety Alert about the security of Bolt-In Tow-Eyes.

This Safety Alert relates to the need to monitor the security of the Bolt-in Tow-Eye used on a drawbar connecting a trailer to a truck. These will come under greater scrutiny during a compliance inspection and are more likely to fail. In addition, they will need to be replaced rather than tightened should they come loose.
