See how the mounting tab will cause the strap to pull straight against its bracket? This is exactly what you want. I already had a slot in the front bumper for the old tow hook (which was a piece of garbage that would get bent out of shape any time it was pulled on). The strap would just pull through the slot after the bumper was installed. Easy!
As you can see, this bracket also keeps the strap pulling in the direction of its mounting plate. While we could have just mounted the strap to the holes, the edge of the chassis was in the way, and cleaning it up probably would’ve taken just as long as cutting this bracket out.
Now I have a fully legal car, with properly installed and certified seats, new belts, and a tow strap both in the front and in the rear.
What’s next? Some well-deserved track time, I hope!
