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 which to recover a stuck vehicle. There is much confusion amongst 4WD'ers regarding tow points. Unfortunately this has been exacerbated because many modern vehicles are fitted with generic tow points.
Roadsafe tow points undergo considerable research and development. The new GU4 Point was designed based on the actual vehicle, with CAD drawings and 3D printing for test fitting prototypes. This allows for 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.
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 the use of an Equalising Strap (Bridle)
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 and an adequately rated Bow Shackle, creates a safer vehicle attachment system for recovery situations
