|The STIFFY is a spring loaded, reversible, one-way ratchet that delivers tremendous power. It will allow the wheel to continue rolling in the direction it is being levered, but it has to be "unlocked" in order to allow movement in the other direction. Traction on the tire is supplied by "teeth" on the "friction pad." It also works well when wet.|
The basic system consists of 2 pieces (special one-piece tow bar and the STIFFY mechanism). An optional POWER TOW ADAPTER is available to pull the plane with a Go-Cart, Tractor, and etc. The Stiffy mechanism will work with our existing BE-3 tow bar with no modifications. Weight 4lbs., Fits in baggage area.
