Pair of load rated tow points to suit 150 Series Toyota Prado.
RoadSafe Tow Points
Off road driving demands four 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 amongst four wheel drivers 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 10,000 pounds or 4 ½ tonne 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 recovery.
Depending on 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. Road safe tow points undergo considerable research and development. The new RoadSafe Prado 150 point was designed based on the actual vehicle, with CAD drawings and 3D printing for test fitting prototype. This allows for any bugs to be ironed out prior to any manufactured prototype for vehicle fitment, destruction testing, and finally vehicle testing in real life recovery situations. 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 equalizing strap or bridle.
Most RoadSafe tow points have been designed for use with a 4.7 tonne bow shackle. When bolted to the chassis, the use of RoadSafe tow points, in conjunction with an equalizing bridle attached with an adequately rated bow shackle creates a safer vehicle attachment system for recovery situations.
All RoadSafe tow points have been destruction tested during development, to ensure they have the ability to cope with a variety of potential recovery situations.
