Rear tow strap help

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

can someone confirm based on the below picture is that a rear tow point? It’s on the passenger side tucked up to the left of exhaust mount.

 

secondly, if it is a tow point, does anyone have any tips on how to securely fasten the tow strap to this?

 

thanks,

James

I have my rear tow hoop connected there. Mine is a solid metal bracket with hoop on the end, it fixes with 2 bolts and washers through the hole On your pic and it has been used twice to pull me out of the gravel traps so whether its a legitimate toe point or not it certainly can be used. 
for what you have there you are gonna need a long bolt and nut with 2 square plate washers either side of the hole.

Just to be clear.

 

It could be used as a temporary tow point and will serve for light recovery, but best to stick with the OEM tow point.

 

Who would want to drive around with a strap flapping in the wind unless you are a :drive1

There you go, as per alex. For the purpose of track days or sprints it will serve the purpose of having a visible toe point for recovery but i wouldnt ever use mine to tow another car or such like, i would always use the correct point, i take it this is more for looks though, yes.
