Recharging a Witter Detachable Neck

What to do if having trouble loading a Witter detachable neck.

If you find you are experiencing problems loading the Witter detachable neck into the receiver it is usually found that the mechanism is in a discharged state. To identify this please follow the procedure as detailed below.

Step 1 - Identifying the Mechanism Position
Discharged state
Inspect the part that is inserted into the tow bar receptor. If the pin with the gold surround is protruding approximately 3mm and the silver plunger is visible beyond the end of the housing then the mechanism is in a discharged state, it will not load and will need to be recharged, go to Step 2.
Charged state
If the pin with the gold surround is protruding approximately 8mm and the silver plunger is hidden within the end of the housing then the mechanism is in a charged state, it is ready to load, go to Step 4

Step 2 - Ensure the Handle is Unlocked
If the key slot is perpendicular (at a 90° angle) to the handle grip, then it is in the locked position and must be unlocked.
Insert the key and rotate 90° clockwise.
The key slot should now be in-line with the handle grip, now remove the key. Continue to Step 3.

Step 3 - Charging the Mechanism
Place the detachable neck on the floor with the handle facing upwards. Push down on the handle.
Keeping the handle pressed, rotate clockwise until a click can be heard.
Once the handle clicks and stays in position, the mechanism is now in a charged state and ready to load.

Step 4 - Loading a Charged Neck
With the key removed and keeping clear of the handle. Insert the detachable neck fully into the receptor then push down for horizontal systems or pull the ball towards you for vertical systems, to activate the mechanism.
The handle will spin anticlockwise to show green in the inspection window.
Once the handle clicks and stays in position, the mechanism is now in a charged state and can be locked by turning the key 90° anti-clockwise.
