Off road driving demands for strong, reliable recovery points to cope with a huge variety of recovery situations
Brand :Roadsafe Automotive
Always demand genuine Roadsafe Tow Points! Roadsafe Tow Points are FEA Tested during design and Destruction tested
during development to establish Working Load Limits.
Tow Points have been designed as matched pairs, supplied in LH/RH for vehicle specific fitment. Your purchase will include high tensile bolts and any additional vehicle specific mounting hardware required to ensure secure fitment to vehicles. Correct fitment of these components is critical for your and others personal safety.
Each pair of Tow Points is supplied with vehicle specific fitment instructions. These instructions should be followed during fitment to ensure all steps are taken for correct installation, so when required, the points will be at their optimum Working Load Limit (WLL) as stamped. Tow point fitting instructions can be found here.
Always use Tow Points as a matched pair with an equalising bridle. Failure to use tow points correctly can result in Tow Point fatigue and bending and voiding your warranty. Never use a single point combined with a side load/pull.
The Tow Points are easy to install. It is recommended that Tow Points are fitted by a qualified mechanic with specialist 4WD knowledge who understands your vehicle, including weights carried, the style of Bull Bar, general usage, etc. In some circumstances, these Tow Points may not be suitable for your vehicle. Incorrect selection or incorrect installation is not covered by warranty.
Tow Points have been designed on vehicles without Bull Bars. In some circumstances, the bull bar mounting bolts/brackets may utilise the same chassis holes that are utilised for Tow Point fitment. Most of the time, there is a fix around this - however, in some instances where Bull Bars have been fitted, it precludes the opportunity to fit the Tow Points without major modifications. Where possible, we maintain a list of Bull Bar fitments which can be found here.
Additionally, if a bull bar is fitted, modifications might be required to the bar bracket, and additional hardware might be required (longer bolts etc.) To facilitate fitment. As there are so many combinations and potential bar model combinations, we are unable to include every potential bolt required in the kit – this would make the kits ridiculously expensive. We have supplied the kits with the bolt options identified to suit the majority of applications. Unfortunately, if your vehicle/bar/tow point combination falls outside of those applications, you will have to purchase additional bolts (from a local bolt barn or similar) to suit your required application. We recommend grade 8.8 or higher and tightening to appropriate bolt torque specs.
It is the Tow Points themselves as supplied that have been tested to the WLL advised. It is at the vehicle owner’s discretion for fitment, ensuring that the chassis is adequately designed, constructed and rated to suit this application.
These Tow Points have been designed and tested for straight-line pull. The Tow Points have not been tested for lifting purposes and should not be used for lifting. The forces applied to differ between lifting and straight-line pull-type recoveries.
The standard points on the front of a 4WD are primarily designed for tying down your vehicle during transit. Some vehicles come with a stronger point on the front but this still hasn't been tested by the manufacturer and rated for recovery or towing purposes. All Road Safe tow points have been destruction tested and give a Working Load Limited (WWL). In most cases the points were destruction tested up to 18,000Kgs+ to ensure they have the ability to cope with a variety of potential recovery situations. These points are designed to work with 3.25T bow shackles.
All of our tow points have the following features:
Destruction tested and rated (products vary)
Hi-vis yellow paint as required by mining regulations
Made from 10mm thick SS41 carbon steel plate
Hole for mounting of bow shackle
Easy fit - no cutting or welding required
Bolts and nuts and crush tubes are included
Also included in the kit is:
8,000Kg rated equaliser (bridle) strap
2 off 3.25T bow shackles
For best results and safety, it is advised to have two of these points fitted and use a bridle / equaliser strap to even the loads through both points. When using the bow shackles with this point, ensure the "bow"of the shackle is attached to the point and the pin of the shackle has the strap attached to it. This will then enable the shackles to rotate to different angles as your vehicle is towed. The equaliser strap supplied has a sleeve in the middle to ensure the strap you attach to it doesn't damage the equaliser strap.
