Towbar correct driving position?

Recently purchased second hand Oris detachable towbar which unfortunately did not come with the key. I want to be sure it is locked closed. There is a red and a green position. Can anyone tell me what it should be?

Thanks! David

Please explain...

I have the stock oris towbar with the key (I have the P/N of you need it) and whenever the lock is "locked", the key can be removed and the lock will stay in place.

When you unlock it, the "detachable" part (tumbler, I think) will come out with the key as one unit!
