Tow Hooks

Here's my problem just finished hooking up a Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar to my 2001 Honda Crv, but the tow hooks on the safty chain will not fit into the holes on my 1998 National Tradewind receiver. What I want to use are two quick link screwables on the motorhome receiver and then hook the the safty chain hooks into them. Anyone know of any reason this can't be done or may not be allowed? The quick links will fit into the motor home receiver holes by the way.

That's what I did on my first Mh with the same problem and it worked fine. There are no requiremenst for how you do it, just that you do it.

Have a nice day!

Shouldn't be a problem ! I do the same on my hook-up. Just get beefy enough screw links and you will be fine.

Use them on the CRV - I have the beefy safety cables with large hooks. Sure makes hooking/unhooking easier.

Iv used them before and worked good.
Id also recommend squirting wd 40 on the threads once in a while to keep the threads operable.

When Blue-OX re-did my tow gear.. That is exactly how they did it, Two screwable quick links in the hooks on the car.

I see no reason why it should not work provided the quick links are big enough

I have tested my tow gear (The original, nto the re-done) and found the safety cables worked as advertised.

I do not recommend testing them however (Cost me over 2 grand to fix the damage to the towed.. NO damage to the RV, thankfully)

Home is where I park it!
