Accessories for towing 660L and 1100L bins

Directional lock tabs for steering

Warning: Never tow with four swivel castors.

Towing bins with four swivel castors will cause problems with trailing and 'fishtailing'–cutting corners, rather than following the unit.

For safety purposes, directional lock tabs are fitted to your bin's existing rear swivel castors to enable controlled steering and towing in a straight line.

Order code



  • For use on Sulo bin castors.

  • Improves steering and manouverability. 

  • Enables towing of bins in a straight line. 

  • Fitted between castor plate and base of bin for reliability and safety.
