Many of the Matchbox Kingsize and Superkings trailers have a plastic eye, this often gets broken off so this article is for a quick and easy fix without major work or special parts.

Here is our example, a good condition farm trailer but missing the plastic towing eye.


Underneath you can see the remains of the white plastic, this need to be carefully prised out.


Using a small metal eye found in many hardware stores, this is supported in place and a small amount of epoxy resin glue such as Araldite is applied and allowed to run into the recess.


Allow to set for ten minutes and your ready to roll.
