Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Curt tow strap loop for two and a half inch hitches. It has a 13,000 pound maximum line pull. Now this tow ring right here will let you attach recovery straps, cable, or rope to be used in agricultural, industrial, or recreational application. It is a hitch mounted design, ensures quick, simple installation and removal. It's a sturdy steel construction. You can see it's a solid shank right here.

Has a nice, durable carbide black powder coat finish on it.Now, when you do install this into your hitch, it does require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock to put this through the hole here. Those we do sell separately on our website. Again, the application for this is a two and a half inch by two and a half inch trailer hitch receiver. Weight capacity again is 13,000 pounds maximum line pull.Now, I do want to just show you the tow ring itself. If you just unscrew the pin right here, that's how you can remove it from the shank.

So, once you get it all the way out, then you can remove tow ring, and then to install it back, just line it up with the hole, put the pin all the way through, and then just go ahead and tighten your pin all the way down to hold it into place.Now, a few measurements I want to give you. The hitch pin hole, which if you can see there is it goes in this way. There's a hitch pin hole there. If it goes in this way, there's a hitch pin hole at a different distance. They're about one inch apart center to center, so what I'm gonna do is measure from the front here to each hitch pin hole.

So, let's do it from here. Very front to that hitch pin hole center is six inches. If we turn it this way, and you install it this way, from the front to the center is seven inches. So, again, one inch in between each hitch pin hole.But that should do it for the review on the Curt tow strap loop for two and a half inch hitches with a 13,000 maximum line pull.

Use this heavy-duty, hitch-mounted shackle as an attachment point for strap, cable, or rope. Powder coated steel resists rust. Hitch pin and clip sold separately.


Excellent little tidbit to add to the new truck for pulling the random Prius out of the snow. After upgrading the truck, it was nice to be able to find some recovery gear for the 2.5" receiver. The nice thing about this piece is that it is drilled for installation with the clevis pin horizontal or vertical. This prevents side loading of the clevis pin when pulling loads that are not directly behind the truck.


etrailer was awesome in getting my D-ring receiver hitch to me in short time ordered it twice from another company and both times it got canceled thanks etrailer this is my third order from etrailer great company awesome support.


I like that this shackle can be mounted horizontal or vertical. The working load of 13,000 lbs is pretty common for a shackle this size. Don’t be misled by more expensive brands that post max load instead of working load.


After 18 years finally time for a new truck and a 2019 Chevy 2500 was it , the newer trucks come with a trailer receiver hitch that accepts wider tow bars . I always like having a towbar with a ring in case I have to pull someone out during the winter . The E trailer C45831 towbar with ring looks great fits great and I am sure it will do the job if I need it this winter.



Wow, larger than pictured, solid steel, very heavy.

great, it will out live me!
