The towing eye must always be carried in the vehicle.

CAUTION:
The screw-in towing eye has a left-hand thread. Turn it anti-clockwise to install it. Use the wheelbrace to make sure that the towing eye is fully tightened.

Note: On vehicles with a tow bar, the towing eye cannot be installed at the rear of the vehicle. Use the tow bar to tow a vehicle.
