It has been reported that these points have had fitting issues when an ARB Steel Bull Bar is installed. Please check that you can access both mounting holes for fitment, if you have a bull bar, prior to ordering these tow points.
When you hit the tracks you need to have reliable recovery points that are built & tested tough!
There is alot of talk out there about using the Factory recovery points on your vehicle.....DON'T!!!
These are factory tie town points used when the vehicles are shipped from the manufacturer & are not designed for Recovery situations.
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 yours & 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.

It is the Tow Points themselves as supplied that have been tested to the WLL advised. It is at the vehicle owners discretion for fitment, ensuring that the chassis is adequately designed, constructed and/or rated to suit this application.
It is recommended that Tow Points are fitted by a qualified mechanic with specialist 4WD knowledge, who has an understanding of your vehicle including weights carried, the style of Bull Bar, general usage etc. as in some circumstances these Tow Points may not be suitable for your vehicle.
These Tow Points have been designed and tested for straight line pull. The Tow Points have not been tested for lifting purposes & should not be used for lifting, the forces applied differ between lifting and straight line pull type recoveries. Roadsafe Tow Points are FEA Tested during design and Destruction tested during development to establish Working Load Limits.
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/or bending, and will void your warranty. Never use a single point combined with a side load/pull.
If a recovery is to be performed, it is imperative both Tow Points are utilized, with the use of a bridle strap. This will share the load through the front of your vehicle, giving increased strength and safety margins, the use of a bridle strap will also keep all components tethered in the case of a failure, reducing the risk of serious injury or death.
Always INSPECT the Tow Points and shackles before each use. Do not use if there are visible signs of damage or wear (including cracking or elongation). Do not exceed the Working Load Limit (WLL) of the shackle or Tow Points. Always STAY A SAFE DISTANCE away from the recovery area – at least 1.5 times the length of the recovery strap. Incorrect use of recovery equipment can result in serious injury or death.
Always ensure that adequate PREPARATION for the recovery, to minimise the strain on either vehicle, has been undertaken i.e. Digging, Rock placement etc. If you do not understand how to use this equipment safely or are uncomfortable with your abilities in the use of recovery equipment, please complete a course that specialises in four wheel driving & 4WD vehicle recovery.
