i've had to pull a couple civics and 240's out of the ditch a few times using these

its really nice since they are usually brightly colored and easy to spot on the bumper.

track ones are usually mounted horizontal so the dont snag stuff..and they dont come in such gay colors. (not that is it a bad thing)..just poseur stuff on a car like a civic for the street.

trying to look "track".

Yeah, they're actually not bad for towing small things in a pinch. And I bet me and Robert will probably end up using it to tow something again in the future.

A ton of turds around seattle and Tacoma put carabineers on the back of their POS civics. I think its a cool thing like plasti dip to us Tacoma world nerds.

Yep. I could tow away half the folks at Alki Beach on any given night by one of those things.

It's a simple Tow Hook.

In some cases that part is required for race cars and allows easier access to have a towing vehicle pull the race car out of the way in case the car has a mechanical problem. The bright colors allow easy finding of the tow hook.

Rice rockets have taken it to the next level and put it on for show, I doubt they have any load rating on them or have some kind of disclaimer so the company doesn't get sued.
