Towing pintles are the only products designed to tow trailers fitted with the military 3 inch towing eye.
Towing Pintles are hooks designed to rotate up to 360 degrees to allow the trailer to rotate independently of the towing vehicle when off-road. This is particularly important when towing at high speed, which is often a military requirement.
The Towing Pintle is suitable for normal on-road usage as it can be locked in a fixed position when necessary.
