The Tug tow hook is a lightweight, fully functional, track-ready tow hook for your WRX or STI. Form and function come together to create a stylish tow hook with tons of pulling capacity. Tug is designed with the ball-detent system so it easily flips from vertical to horizontal attitude, and stays there.
The Tug tow hook is compatible with Raceseng's other accessories, including the license plate holder and GoPro camera mount. Construction is of 7075 T6 aluminum and stainless steel for long life.
This isn't just a decorative hook, either. The diameter of the ring is 2", which is the minimum required at most tracks. In testing the Tug was able to pull a car on flat ground WITH THE TIRES LOCKED. (We don't recommend this. But the hook did survive.) Note, though, that the hook is only intended for towing in a direction directly in line with the shaft. Do NOT apply any sideways force or tow at an angle; the tow hook and/or your car could be damaged. When in doubt, use the factory tow hook, or better yet, have a tow truck professional take care of it.
The Tug tow hook is available for the front or rear with selectable anodized ring color options -- bronze, gunmetal, orange, red, or blue. Fits all 2008-2014 WRX and STI. Includes hook plus mounting template.
Note that the nature of anodizing means the colors MAY eventually fade from the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. Red is especially susceptible to this. We will not accept warranty claims based on color fading.
