I believe Blue Ox sponsers this forum.

I think it curious that they are not responding to this discussion.

We sell the Blue Ox product and have heard of some baseplate's detaching from the vehicle. As for the exact cause we do not know, but what we have found is that many people do not realize that you need to check and maintain their baseplate. To many people think that once it is installed they can forget about it. It is a bolt on item and it needs to be checked periodically to verify that the installation hardware is still tight and secure. And that there is no signs of metal fatigue in the baseplate or the vehicles frame.

Most people use common sense when towing their vehicle and keep speeds reasonable and their driving conservative. But if your out on the highways hauling butt and the toad flying back and forth who knows what can happen. And believe me I have seen people driving that way.

The safety cables came about as one more way for Blue Ox to keep things safe.

And I concur with IrishBear, Blue Ox is definitely one of our best vendors when it comes to taking care of customer issues no matter how old the product maybe.

I absolutely agree with everything you say.

MY POINT IS: If Blue Ox feels this is important enough to send me a letter, they should just send the parts so I can put them on.

This sounds like it should be handled like a safety recall, like the automobile mfrs. do.
