What is the Function of the Ring on the Draw-Tite # 24947 Trailer Hitch?


I noticed that some trailer hitch end have an extra ring around the hitch, and some does not. What does the ring do and can a ring be installed separately? It is a ring around the tube at the point where the hitch bar attaches to the hitch.


Expert Reply:

The ring that are around the hitch like the one on the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24947 are designed for attachment points for cables. These are especially helpful for roof-mounted accessories or towing a trailer/flat-towing a vehicle. Some vehicles have factory tow hooks at either the front or back (or sometimes both). It is commonly covered by a plastic tab. We do carry weld-on safety chain mounting loops like the Safety Chain U-Loop for Trailer Hitch - Weld-On # 362ChainLoopU that will allow you to mount mounting points to your vehicle.
