Sooner or later you'll get hooked!!

Article written by Joe "Jeepin' Joe" Linert

Date Added: 06/10/2007

If you wheel your rig, then you?ve probably at some point needed a tug with a strap.

There are many ways to hook a tow strap to your rig. Some include D-rings, single hooks, or a single hook in a receiver, or even the ball of a trailer hitch. Each device has its advantages and disadvantages as well as some dangers. Safety should be the most important part of wheelin?, and ones equipment should be used with safety in mind.

One of the main problems with a tow hook is that the strap can fall off while pulling a vehicle over uneven terrain. To solve this problem, we turned to one of the new products revealed at the Off-Road Impact Show in Las Vegas. It is something most of us have probably seen more than once in a slightly different form, but this one is just a little different ? the ?Double Trouble Recovery Hook?. Double Trouble may not sound like something you want to get into, but this recovery device may just get you out of it.

The Double Trouble Recovery Hook is made of two hooks welded back-to-back, then welded in a square tube that fits into your receiver. The hooks are even welded inside the square tube of steel for added strength and durability. The Double Trouble is rated at 20,000 lbs, and it is extremely easy to use.

Double Trouble comes in three different colors. There is your basic black, silver vein powder coat, and for those who like a little bling, there?s chrome.

Final Thoughts

Since we picked up this device in Vegas, we have set out to put its durability to a thorough test. After running the Double Trouble for the past four months, we can honestly say it easily meets all of their claims about its longevity. No matter what the terrain or angle of the pull, a strap never slipped off the Double Trouble. Even wheeling with it in the receiver hitch during Easter Jeep Safari, and numerous times smacking it on rocks, the only ?damage? is some slightly scratched powder coat. The Double Trouble can easily be stored in the back of your rig and is ideal for someone who doesn?t have an aftermarket bumper with tow points.
