The hitch itself is manufactured from high strength mild steel, finished with a zinc coating to keep it durable as well as ensuring a clean finish. The hitch can be turned both directions with the shackle hole horizontal or vertical to avoid shackle binding.
Appropriate recovery points are essential to conduct the safe recovery of vehicles. It is recommended that all vehicles planning to go off road should have at least one recovery point at the rear. Do not confuse factory tie-down points with recovery points. Factory lashing points are for transport of vehicles only and are not designed to recover a stuck vehicle. You should never ever use a tow ball for recovery purposes, they are not rated for the loads applied when performing vehicle recovery.
