Hi all,

I am looking for RING type (rated) recovery points for the front of my 100 Series Petrol IFS Landcruiser.

Does any one know where to buy these?

Cheers

Dave

Dave,

I think that you are asking about "eye bolts". Sometimes found on the front of trucks.
Engenerring supliers should have them or try a truck supply shop.

Not sure what is the max ratting is on them, but you would need at least 3.25t

Most better bolt/nut shops have a supply of eye-bolts. A point to note is that if rated, it is usually for lifting/supporting personnel. If my memory serves me well this involves a Factor of Safety of 12, whereas towing horizontally has a F of S of 4.

Hence you may find a 12mm eye-bolt is stamped (rated) for about 0.4T SWL whereas the same item is good for 1.2T for towing.

As I said, all based on memory ... and I don't wish to be embroiled in the old "snatch load" debate.

If you put a large thick washer inside the bullbar they will serve very well in controlled recovery situations, however I would not recommend them for snatch type jobs.

I have a pair on the back of the fender which are fine for the small jobs. When called upon to save toys and trools I use the hitch .... ;-D

Cheers

Using a ring or eye-bolt means use of a shackle. I have no problem with using a shackle, I have to with the RA Rodeo as that is all they have (eye's).
If you can engineer in the correct device that does eliminate the use of a shackle, wouldn't that be the better way too go?

Dude on the melbourne list is selling them.

They are typically $25 ea in lots of 100, but if there is enough demand I may be able to get them cheaper. I had to buy 5, so have 2 left over if anybody is interested.

You may wish to consider these, LBG Omni-Directional Threaded Ring Bolt. They rotate through 360 degrees self-aligning in the direction of the load/pull.

I put two on the rear of the troopy.
