Most off-road vehicles come with tow bars on the rear because they are helpful. However, many do not come with recovery points, so before you head off on your next adventure, it is essential that you have one. A recovery hitch will bolt itself onto your chassis, so then, you can tow anything you need to.
The biggest reason for having one is because you are most likely going to get in trouble at some point. There is no point in saying that you won’t because everyone does at some point, so it is better to be prepared instead of just hoping that it doesn’t. When buying a recovery hitch, you should know that it goes on the rear of your vehicle.
A recovery hitch is a big lump of steel with a rated shackle, which will slide into your tow bar and be secured with a pin. These are incredibly versatile and also happen to be fantastic for all your off-roading needs. Except, before purchasing your recovery hitch, look at your tow bar and make sure that it is in good condition.
If your chassis looks like it has seen better days, get a professional in to look at it because you do not want to rip the entire thing off when you need to use it.

Recovery Gear FAQs
Can’t I Just Recover with a Pin?
Technically, you can recover with just a pin, and many people do, but there are more advantages to having a hitch with you when you’re stuck. A hitch is stronger and can help prevent your pin from bending. If you end up bending your pin, you will have a hard time getting it out afterwards, so it is better to just not rely on it if you don’t have to.
Are Recovery Ropes Better Than Straps?
Recovery rope is more durable than straps, so they are less likely to fail. Additionally, recovery ropes are more convenient to pack away after using them. However, the most significant advantage of recovery rope is that it is softer than straps, so there will be less damage or strain on the vehicle and recovery gear.
Can I Order My Recovery Points in a Different Colour?
No, they are only available in red, but that makes it easy to see when you need them. Also, there is little demand to have different colours available, so if you want to have your recovery points a different colour, you will need to paint them yourself.
