Video Transcript for Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Receiver Tow Hook Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Tow Ready forged receiver hitch mounted tow hook. This offers a ten thousand pound weight capacity. The part number on it is TR63044. As you can see this is a solid one piece shank design, very solid, very durable. It is a forged steel construction, has a nice black powder coat finish that's going to stand up to the test of time. The overall length is going to be right at 11 3/4 of an inch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the inside bend of our hook, you've got about 9" there.

From the center of our hitch pin hole to the outside of our hook right here, about 10 1/4. You can see this does connect to our vehicle using a standard 5/8ths pin. That 5/8ths pin is sold separately so if you don't already have one at home, pick one up. It's part number is PC3 and it goes right in to any 2 by 2" trailer receiver hook. This is a full one piece design, very rugged and very durable. Now that we've gone over the features, that will complete today's look at the Tow Ready trailer hitch receiver mounted forged tow hook, part number TR63044.

Tow Ready by Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch and Reese Forged Tow Hook


Loved the selection etrailer,com has over the regular/normal hitches !
I was impressed with the quality and Solidness of this product also !


I don’t think you could ask for a heftier, stronger tow hook. This thing is a monster, weighing in at over 9 pounds, forged from solid steel (NO hollow sections). Your hitch receiver will probably fail long before you break this slider. I have yet to see a better or stronger tow hook that will fit in a standard 2X2” receiver. You will not be disappointed! If you need a comparable tow eye, take a look at its sibling, #TR63045. I bought one of each. Both are incredible. I keep the hook stored in my Xterra along with a heavy tow strap so that I’m always prepared to rescue a stuck vehicle or provide a short tow.


Having a tow hook fail under load, usually a nylon strap or rope for recovery is a major concern for serious injury. If the hook fails then you essentially have a rubber band effect with a substantial piece of metal traveling at hundreds of miles per hour until it strikes something or someone. Several other units I ordered from another company, although rated at 10,000 pounds, seemed flimsy with it welded construction and light weight. These units, the forged tow eye and forged two hook, are solid with no welds or tubular construction. I was impressed, suspecting that the 10,000lb rating is probably a safe working load limit and not the ultimate load limit. Usually the safe working load limit is 10% of the ultimate load limit. These units should not fail and in a recovery or tow operation; you want the strap or rope to fail before the metal hook, tow eye or any metal part to fail. Highly recommended.


Well built and heavy duty!


The product shipped the very next day and I received two notifications that is was shipped. The tracking details were provided the very next day and they even upgraded my shipment at no extra cost.

If the Blizzard would not have hit Illinois that day I would have received it in 2 days. None the less the package showed up after the adverse weather conditions had passed.

The product (hitch hook) is better than expected and very heavy duty. I intstalled it as soon as it arrived and love this hook it will more than serve it's purpose.

Thank you I will definately be back for other products and I highly recommend to anyone in need of your products.

I've been looking for a tow hook for a long time and was about to purchase a 3-way ball mount with hook when I dicovered that the hooks on those mounts ONLY have a 500lbs rating.

So I researched some more and Found this little gem! I looked forward to using it in the field.




Tow/recovery hookThis is an item I had been looking for, for quite some time. Found the website and was very pleased. Item was shipped promtly and was as exactly as described. Customer service was outstanding. Customer service e-mailed me when order was placed and order was shipped. I recieved order on time. This is one of the finest companys I've ever dealt with on the internet. I would definitely buy from this company agaiin. Thanks for the great service!!


Needed a heavy duty solution to hook a tow strap up, and this fits the bill.. Nicely made product, would recommend, and would buy again. etrailer's customer service was top notch, with questions I had.. Would order from them again as well.


This is a solid piece of equipment, however it does require a connecting hook or D-ring larger than can typically be found at a home improvement/hardware store - at least in my area in eastern PA. Great service from - phone ordering was professional and efficient. The product was shipped the same day and arrived UPS ground two days later. I'm more than satisfied.


Solid piece. Great for the emergency kit!I haven't had a chance to use it... Yet... But checked for figment and quality. Can't beat it for the price and even trying to make one from an existing ballmount you'll spend more than you think. It's there when I need it and my experience with etrailer has been nothing short of excellent. Great job guys!


Hook arrived as advertised. They guys even up[graded my shipping at no extra charge. Highly recommend them and all their products.


very strong looking, works great for a chain, cable, or tow strap


excellent, very heavy duty should work fine for what I need it for!


was what i wanted quality is excellant


Nice rugged hook looks even bigger and more robust on the truck pictures don't show just how strong this hook is. I am very pleased

  • What is the Difference Between a Tow Eye and a Tow Hook
    The Tow Eye, like # TR63045, and Trailer Hitch Receiver Mounted Forged Tow Hook, # TR63044 are both used a lot in vehicle recovery and winching operation applications but are not the safest option for other towing needs. The choice between using a tow hook or a tow eye will mostly depend on what exactly you need to recover the vehicle. If off-road and you get stuck, you could use a winch and pulley block and connect it to a tow eye so it cannot slip off. But if you were pulling a vehicle...

  • Do the Tow Hooks on a 2000 Ford Explorer Need to be Removed to Install a Hitch
    The Draw-Tite Hitch # 75096 that you referenced will require the removal of the tow hooks on your 2000 Ford Explorer. Basically all of the hitches available for your vehicle will install the same way and would require the removal of tow hooks if your vehicle is equipped with them. If you do not want to be without a tow hook on your vehicle you could get a Hitch Mounted Forged Tow Hook # TR63044 and keep it in your vehicle at all times so that when needed you could install it in your hitch.

  • Do the Tow Hooks of a 2014 Jeep Patriot Need to Be Removed for Hitch Install
    The tow hook cannot be re-installed once the hitch is installed on the 2014 Jeep Patriot, but the good news is the hitch can be used in the same purpose as the tow hook if needed. The safety chain loops can be used as hooks, or you could get the part # TR63044 and install that in the hitch. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Do Tow Hooks have to be Removed on a 2006 Jeep Commander to Install a Front Mount Trailer Hitch
    According to the installation instructions for the Curt front mount hitch # C31056 which I have linked for you, the tow hooks will be removed and not be reinstalled in order to install the hitch. It is not exactly the same but if you wanted a tow hook you could use # TR63044 and put it in the front mount hitch.

  • How to Use Tow Hooks With 2019 Ram 3500
    There are no tow hooks for a Westin Bull Bar on your 2019 Ram 3500, but there are still tow hooks that you can use. The only options are bolt-on like the Curt Bolt-On Tow Hook # C22411, or a hitch-receiver mounted tow hook, the Trailer Hitch Receiver Mounted Forged Tow Hook # TR63044. I have added a link to our entire selection of tow hooks for you to check out.

  • Hook Recommendation for Front Hitch 65028 For Use with Recovery
    In an emergency situation the holes on the lower brackets of the trailer hitch part # 65028 could be used as a recovery point, but a better solution would be to use a hook like the part # BDW20017 or # TR63044 in the hitch opening of the # 65028.
