The Demco 9523041 is required to be used for safety reasons. We show that when using the stock ends of the tow bar you can run into issues such as the tabs bending because there is no support on the outside of the tabs when making turns and can cause them to bend. Blue Ox doesn't recommend towing without an adapter and there isn’t a warranty on the baseplate if you don’t use an adapter.
