A more forgiving tow bar for toad?

Hello all,

In today's post "Maneuvering with a Toad", Bob Byrne of FROG replied "With most tow bars (there are a few out now where it doesn't matter), unlocking the arms of the tow bar is extremely difficult if the car is turned, creating a bind on the arm locks.

All of us who tow a toad knows this all too well, but does anyone know of the "few out there now where it doesn't matter" that he mentions? Anyone got a brand and model or a website to share?

I use a cheap old school a frame setup. I can hook amd unhook from any angle. For the sake of marriage, I back the mh to the toad using the camera. Usually one shot, sometimes two.

Of course, the a frame would be a pita if i had to store it, but I can flip it up, secure it, and leave it on our Jeep (aftermarket bumper with tow rated d ring connectors).
