Tow hook and parking help incompatibility

My father installed a tow hook (Tow-Trust from another B-Max) on the B-Max, but ever since he installed it the parking help constantly beeps that he's close to hitting an object in the rear end. What should I do?

most of the tow bars for bmax have a removable 'swan neck' which would solve the problem
I think the towbar wiring relay/module disables the reverse parking sensors, fog, and reverse lights when the trailer is attached.

thinking about it, do you have a cover on the tow ball, or a cycle mount or similar? because these might be 'seen' by the parking sensors
