    A:  Yes, it is a 3/4 inch D-Ring.

    by|Jan 22, 2018

      A:  I think so as the 10,000 rating exceeds the 4000 rating for a 1/2 in Dring

      by|Jan 19, 2017

      A:  You will need a minimum 2 inch diameter ring to slide over the eye of the clevis.

        Q:Why is a TOW ring not recommended for towing?
        by|Nov 10, 2016

        Answer This Question

        A:  It's not intended for towing a trailer or actually towing anything on the road. This is an off-road accessory used to attach a tow strap to pull a vehicle (yours or someone elses) out of a bad spot.

          A:  Usually a ball mount is used for towing. This is like a huge link attached to the pipe that fists into the truck. It would be ok for dragging a big tree limb out of the field or other coarse work but it can't give stability to a trailer like a ball mount can do.

          A:  It is likely ment for off road towing and or off road use only. The manufacture and/or Home Depot likely state it is not recommended for towing (specifically on-road) to mitigate any liability that could occur with a failure of the tow ring, etc.

          A:  Possibly manufacturing liability since any slack may cause the chain to uncouple. I've used a tow strap and did not have any issues

          by|Jul 25, 2021

          A:  This ring can tow up to 8,000 pounds.

            I just purchased a pickup truck to handle some light construction tasks around the house, as well as to handle snow and trips upstate. Part of those tasks will inevitably involve towing a family member home or pulling some shrubs out of the ground. This tow hook is perfect for the job. Construction is heavy duty, the ring is a good size, and the bolt unscrews from the ring so you can fit a tow ring around it if it doesn't have hooks. It's a very simple design but the simple designs are the ones that last.

            Awesome! What you see if what you get and does exactly what you want really well. This high tow ring is really handy for any sort of recovery of either your vehicle or another vehicle (or whatever). The unit is all pure steel, including the mount, ring and ring screw. The screw easily unscrews after several turns so you can put in a tow strap, chains or whatever you need. Lastly, this thing just looks sweet on the back of my 4Runner. Highly recommend!

            Perfect for the farm truck. This two-inch receiver mount tow ring is a great addition to my towing arsenal. Using a chain wrapped around a trailer ball was always inconvenient and chancy. The chain seemed to fall off at the most inopportune times. This tow ring is heavy duty and the case hardened pin has yet to break on anything I've pulled or towed. This is a heavy duty ring that should last without failure. I trust it a lot more than just a chain attached to a trailer ball. ..

            This 2" receiver mount with tow ring is heavy duty and is solid as opposed to a typical tube style receiver. The 8000lb rating will by far exceed my intented application. It seems well built and very hardy. I plan to use it on a diesel utility vehicle to drag pipes, dead trees, etc on my rule property. Something I have noted with these style of tow rings is that on some application that shake a lot, like use with most diesel equipment and/or diesel utility vehicles, is that the pin holding the tow ring could back out with continued vibration. This hasn't happened with this tow ring, but it has happened on a much larger tow ring that I have on a backhoe. In an effort to avoid the tow ring pin from turning, I used a zip tie as in my picture.
