There are always some factors on the road you cannot control -- an irresponsible driver, adverse weather conditions -- but one thing you can control is the type of towing equipment you use. Just because there are threats out there, doesnt mean your towing adventures need to be dangerous. CURT offers a variety of towing safety products -- including safety chains, safety cables, hooks, links and more -- to make sure you have confidence to Bring It and trustworthy equipment to Bring It safely. CURT joining links are made from 1038 steel and can be used to connect chains, cables, ropes and more. This particular 7/16" joining hook features a raw finish to be welded and painted as needed (welding required). Joining links should not be used for lifting applications.
