I have two bikes set up for a tow cart with the pictured hook up. It shows a square insert:

cart hook up

We want to buy a kid cart that uses the same fitting. Can anyone identify a manufacturer that has a same fitting?

  • Is there any brand info on the carts that fit the piece? (I presume you already have carts that fit, and you're just looking for another.) Commented Jun 28, 2021 at 22:24

    If you buy a new trailer it will come with a hitch. Additional hitches are usually not expensive.

I think I've found it

It looks like a Croozer but you might want to check the dimensions.


The cost of a new hitch is far less than the difference in price between different trailers. Fitting is trivial, you do it every time you take the wheel off to fix a puncture, so even swapping between hitches isn't too onerous.

It's far better to get the trailer you want given your budget, and get a spare hitch to fit that if necessary - one should come with the trailer. I paid £/€/$10-20 for my spare.

The only exception would be if you really need 2 trailers both to fit 2 bikes, and already have one. If you've already got one, it should have a brand on it, though admittedly brands come and go. Even if the brand has ceased to exist, searching for spares for that brand might tell you what else they fit.

A round hitch is far more common (Hamax style) IME, or the Burley style, but that's more expensive
