Lowering the stabiliser handle presses two special friction pads onto the towball from the left and right. The contact pressure effectively suppresses oscillations or pitching.
The coupling and stabilising handle are separate from one another and both can be operated using one hand.
CORRECT COUPLING PROCEDURE
1- Using the coupling handle put the AKS 1300 onto the towball. Push the silver handle down and check the green indicator button is visible.
2- Turn the handwheel in the direction of the arrow until it starts to 'ratchet'.
3- Press the red stabilising lever down. The AKS 1300 is now ready for the road.
