I was just unsure whether the whole leg needed to be covered (ie by orange bag) to meet the requirements of the law. OR if these were in fact usable instead of an orange bag for towing in the UK.
Thanks for your time replying though - I just obviously did not make my self clear as to what I intended to use them for in the first post.
I meant remove the prop when towing, and just have the bag covering the leg.. If the prop made contact with the road, or any other surface, I agree the plastic things would offer more protection than a bag, but not much more.. Also, if the prop is raised, (well duh..
,) when towing, how much of the reflective strip would be visible to the following motorist?
