Video Transcript for MaxxTow Off Road Accessories - Tow Hook - Loop - MT70029 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the MaxxTow Tow Strap Loop for two inch trailer hitches. Has a 10,000 pound weight capacity. Now this tow ring will let you attach a recovery strap, a cable or a rope to be used in agricultural, industrial or recreational applications. Now those items we do sell separately on our website. This is a hitch mounted design so it ensures quick, simple installation and removal. It is a nice sturdy steel construction.

Has a nice corrosion resistance black powder coat finish. Does require a hitch pinning clip or a hitch lock to install this into your hitch receiver. Those items we do sell separately on our website.Again, the application for this is two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. Weight capacity is 10,000 pounds. Give ya a few measurements on this.

The overall length from the back to the very end of the loop is gonna be right at about 10 inches. The opening on the loop itself, the inner diameter, is gonna be right at one and three quarter inches. If you needed to take that loop off, what you can do is just unscrew this pin right here and once you unscrew that far enough it'll come out. The loop will come off if you need to attach it with the loop off. Otherwise, you can just go ahead and insert it back in and then just tighten this down to hold the loop to the shank portion.I just wanna show you I have an example here is what a two inch hitch receiver opening would look like.

You got your hitch pit hole right here, all you have to do is slide that in. Line up your hitch pin hole, put your hitch pin and clip or lock through there and you'll be all locked and ready to go. Have your loop right at the back of your vehicle.But that should do it for the review on the MaxxTow Tow Strap Loop for two inch trailer hitches with the 10,000 pound weight capacity.

MaxxTow Tow Strap Loop for 2" Trailer Hitches - 10,000 lbs - MT70029

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (88 Customer Reviews)

Use this heavy-duty, hitch-mounted shackle as an attachment point for strap, cable or rope. Powder coated steel resists rust. Hitch pin and clip sold separately.


For the price, this little slider is an OK value. I just wouldn’t trust it for anywhere near its rated 10,000 lb. capacity, especially if any lateral forces are involved. This is because the nice, beefy clevis loop is mounted to two relatively thin pieces of stock with space between them. In addition, the inside edges of the two pieces are not welded to the faceplate of the slider tube (see my photo). A far better design that would have added only a couple of bucks to the manufacturing cost, would have been to use a single piece of 1” solid stock (instead of the two thin pieces), welded to the faceplate along all four edges. Unless you absolutely need a detachable clevis loop, take a look at the TR63044 tow hook or TR63045 tow eye sliders. They are one piece, forged solid steel, incredibly heavy and strong, and not much more expensive. They are probably stronger than any receiver that you would mount them to.


After installing the hitch receiver there was no way to use the OEM tow eye, so if our Touareg ever needed to be pulled from behind we were out of luck. Though the listed tow eye and tow hook here at were nice they each had their disadvantages: D-ring may not fit, tow strap could come off when slacked, etc. When I saw the tow strap loop @ 10K pounds I knew I found the right product to replace the OEM unit.

Anyone who installs an after-market hitch that doesn't have tow points needs to seriously look into alternatives. For the VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne this fits the bill perfectly. It even stores nicely (wrapped in a rag) in the extra compartment in the spare tire well!


I’ve only used this for a couple of small pulls so far, certainly nothing near what it’s rated for yet. It seems pretty solid. I’m happy with it.

Still working as designed it’s a loop, kind of hard not to.

I have looked high and low locally for this item, and have been continually disappointed. I turned to the internet and found exactly what I was looking for. Not only did it ship promptly, it arrived exactly on schedule, the price was reasonable, and best of all, it fit.

Everything that I purchased from you has been working just great. Dont have one complaint at all. Thanks for being interested in what your customers are buying, and using. Have a Great Day!!

Nice quality. I only wish this was sold as a package with the pin.


it's a really snug fit, I had to use a mallet to get it far enough into the receiver to lock in, but over all it's solid, and exactly what's shown. The general construction is well done with clean welds and even paint, at least until I pounded it into my hitch receiver. But until it gets put through its paces this winter pulling cars out of snow banks I can't speak to the accuracy of its weight rating


That was Super Fast delivery and it all works and looks great! Thank you very much for the great products and service!


After adding the hitch I wanted to get one of these to keep in the trunk so my wife can come to my rescue and pull my car out of the snow...
Haven't used yet but it is very solid.


This is a great idea. When I've given a couple people a hand getting unstuck I don't even think about the eye of the tow strap coming off. I also pull logs off the beach and down hill sides. No more straps coming off. This is solid and I'm sure it will be in my truck for years to come.


Its great! Painted the shackle red to match the hooks on my gmc at4


Simple product, sturdy and well-made. Welding seems high-quality and there are no apparent flaws in finish. I keep it in my recovery tool box for use when needed.


Great part that works well with the 12 inch receiver extension.


Seems very well built for the price. Very heavy. Haven't needed to use it yet. Just tired of putting my tow traps on the ball of my other hitches. Seen the ball snap off because they were not designed for it. This should do the trick when it's needed.


Durable enough for most minor pulling situations. The convenience of using the shackle with tow straps is wonderful.

Hello Brian W, Thank you for purchasing our item and we are glad to hear that the unit meets your standards. We are grateful for your business. Best, Team MaxxHaul

works well, with the D-L winch we purchased from for the rear receiver hitch on our travel trailer.


Looks like they’ll work


This is my second order from etrailer. The products are fantastic and the prices very competitive. What is absolutely amazing is the service you receive, from the super friendly website to all the notification and follow up of the order. I got my order faster than I expected and the cherry on top was the last email personalized for me with all the instruction I may need. Thank you George, great job!


Love this extra recovery point and it looks great as a hitch plug on the back!


I ordered the Erickson Tow Strap, MaxxTow tow strap loop, and the pin and clip to carry in my new to me 4Runner in case I need to assist or need assistance while off road wheeling.
Delivery was quick and packaging was good.
If I ever need to use these items I'll post my feedback.


Very nice product, exactly what I was looking for and for less than everywhere else on the internet. Shipping was amazingly fast. Thanks etrailer guys! I will return.


Great accessory for hitch receiver for those who go offroad occasionally . Great price for quality product. Fast shipping ! Thanks for such a great site.


Talked to Derek in Customer Service very helpful. The Strap Pull arrived in 2 days with free shipping. Seems very well built for the reasonable price. Very satified with etrailer. Just hope i don't have to use its on my CO elk hunt next week.


Came in a timely manner. Looks like it will work for what I needed it for.


The MaxxTow Tow Strap Loop is well made and as described. It will find many uses.


Haven't used it yet, looks sturdy and fits the receiver well.
