Default "Travel" tow-bar for my HRII

This is a "knock down" tow-bar I made for my Rocket when traveling. 1lb - 12oz total weight.

I made a collapsible one for my non-RV. The tubes telescope, so instead of disassembling, it's merely shorter. To retain the pins, their rings slip over the tube so they can't get lost. There are no loose parts; it's an assembly either extended or shortened.

In its extended form it doubles as a control lock and has the safety feature of blocking the pilot seat. Can't get into the plane with the controls locked.
