    I need to take my tow ball off. When I put it back on should it be to a known torque setting or just as tight as hell?
    Many thanks.

    Just checked with a mate who used to fit towbars. From memory he says 210nm.

    Just be careful of over tightening capscrews, if you go past the elasticity point of the capscrew, it will fail at some point, by failure i mean snap.
