When properly secured, tow hooks provide an ideal recovery point. Most 4WD vehicles are equipped with rated recovery points and to find the location simply refer to the owners manual. 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.
