    I need a catchy product name for a recovery shackle mount that fits into a 2" receiver. It's made of solid 2" stock, has a hole for the pin drilled through it and another piece welded on where a 3/4 shackle bolts onto it. I am currently exploring options for a one piece design that is machined down to my specs. Despite the fact that it's welded, it was done by pros and if you are able to break this thing, you probably have bigger problems to worry about! Here are some pics, and I'm looking to get a test video put together in the near future.

    So anyways, catchy product names... GO!

    Not very clever with names BUT I would love to see one of the recovery devices that locks the shackle in. I'd love to just be able to keep it in and not worry about dirty thieves.
