Roadsafe Tow Points

Off road driving demands strong, reliable recovery tow points to cope with a huge variety of recovery situations. The purpose of a recovery tow point is to provide a safe and secure point from which to recover a stuck vehicle. There is much confusion amongst4WD’ers regarding tow points. Unfortunately, this has been exacerbated because many modern vehicles are fitted with generic tow points. Generic tow points are not vehicle specific, and while rated to 10,000lbs (4.5t) or similar, mounting them is often done by the vehicle owner, who is not in a position to ascertain whether the mounting location can handle the loads exerted during a recovery.

Depending upon how and where these points are mounted, generic style tow points can be unsuitable for recovery situations, and have been seen to fail during recovery operations. Roadsafe Tow Points undergo considerable research and development. The new Roadsafe GU4 point was designed based on the actual vehicle, with CAD drawings and 3D printing for test fitting prototypes.

This allows for any bugs to be ironed out prior to any actual manufactured prototype for vehicle fitment, destruction testing, and finally on-vehicle testing in ‘real life’ recovery situations. An Equalising Bridle is designed to evenly distribute the load on the vehicle during the recovery operation when connected to the two recovery tow points. The Roadsafe Equalising Bridles are designed in 2.5m x 8000kg minimum breaking strength, with a movable protective sleeve in the middle and black reinforced eyelet protectors.

Most Roadsafe Tow Points have been designed for use with a 4.7t Bow Shackle. When bolted to the chassis, the use of Roadsafe Tow Points, in conjunction with an Equalising Bridle attached with an adequately rated Bow Shackle, creates a safer vehicle attachment system for recovery situations. In order to encourage recommended use, Roadsafe have kits available including the tow points, bridle and shackles to suit. Setting up this system is straight forward, secure one eye of the Equalising bridle to one of the installed Roadsafe tow points, pass the other end through the eye on the end of the snatch strap intended for use during the recovery operation. Then, hook the second end of the Equalising bridle to the other installed Roadsafe tow point. Line the Equalising bridle up with the direction of pull intended and locate the protective sleeve on the Equalising bridle in the snatch strap eye. Roadsafe 4WD recommend fitting Roadsafe Tow Points as a matched pair, bolted to the Chassis, and used in conjunction with each other in all recovery situations with use of an Equalising Strap (Bridle).
