Would depend on the paticular clubs how hook policy, I only use a pintle on the back of my truck and prefer it to hooks, the strop cant fall off when it goes slack and being a heavy truck it makes a more even pull distrubuting the load more evenly accross both chassis rails..... oh yeah and stinky reinforced my back cross member with a great big piece of channel :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Just out of interest, if anyone has one and is a 4wd club member, how did you go with the standard "no tow ball tow" rule. Just real curious on how club safety officers see these. I think they are safe as personally.

apart from the thickness of the pintle part thingy

looks dodgy to me

It is a rated towball, look at the thickness of the mounted towball compared to the one next to it. Somewhere I have a box for one and it stipulates that non factory towballs cannot replace the factory ball

My 10c

The Pintle and towball would appear to have a rating overall of 5 Tons , assuming this is metric that equates to 11023lbs, which is a bit more than a rated 10000lb hook, the "towball" on it is thicker than a standard one, the non towball ones are rated to 8 ton / 17636lbs

Most strops are rated to 8000lb/3.628 ton, The strop will give way first

some recoveries I've seen are people trying to pull the f..k off the hook or break the strop, if a gentle or good strop will not work then its maybe time to consider winching the stuck vehicle out or digging it a bit rather than "excessive stropping".

Mounting of these needs to be considered into the equation as these do not let go like the rated hooks do...., no point bolting it up to the back of your truck if you are using small/factory unrated bolts or there is not enough support behind it......with both my LJ's Stinky reinforced the mount and behind it to support it properly.

Like anything including rated hooks and strops if correctly fitted and/or used these are safe.....
