For added safety the tow hook has a spring steel retaining clip, to prevent straps from falling off during a recovery.
Caution: a tow ball or vehicle tie down point is not designed as a recovery point. These points DO NOT have sufficient load ratings to handle the loads exerted during a recovery. Failure to attach recovery straps to a correctly rated recovery point may result in a failure and the strap, tow ball or other item used in the recovery may become a missile and could result in serious injury or death. Roadsafe tow hooks are made from 1045C hardened carbon steel, with Working Load Limits set at 4500kgs. Safety Latch and hardware is included with each kit.
