I didn't get any response to this but, to follow up... I went with the Wag Aero ball hitch unit. It works perfectly. It was so nice not to have to pull the plane out of the hangar, uphill.

Universal tow bar for lawn tractor/tug. was created by Ken Thompson
I bought a JD garden tractor a few months ago to be used as a tug. My hangar sits at the bottom of a slope and it's a bit of a challenge pulling it up the hill to my ramp. I need a tow bar that will fit the Ercoupe. My "manual" towbar has 7/8 inch cups that fit over the axle nuts. I would like to find a tow bar with a ball hitch. Wag Aero has one but has pin type connectors , not cups, to connect to the plane. Sporty's has a "universal" towbar with the 7/8 inch cups that will fit the plane, and a drop pin connection to the tug.
Sporty's, apparently, does not offer the same type bar with a ball hitch.

Sportys drop pin tow bar.

Wag Aero Ball hitch towbar

I can live with the drop pin bar but would prefer the ball hitch.

Any thoughts? Thanks!
