Shackle Size Question

Random question. When doing vehicle recovery on stuck cars in snow and you use that eyelet bolt on the car, what size D-ring shackle fits? I'm thinking normal big off-road ones won't work. I'm not trying to get killed by a tow hook, and last time I had to rig something up with another tow strap threaded through the eyelet because my thick nylon recovery strap obviously doesn't fit through those. It wasn't ideal. Just want to keep one in the vehicle in case I ever need to pull someone out, but not sure what size to get. I'm only used to pulling out other vehicles with recovery points while off-roading. Thanks.

Yes, I'm not worried about my truck. I have one of those hitch shackles. I'm talking about to a car tow eyelet (typically stored with the jack) that screws into the front bumper of a car or SUV. Wondering if they're big enough to fit the thick shackles or if I need to get a smaller one. :)

Sounds like that would be the best option. Thanks. They actually work? I know they should, and they list a 7500 lb weight limit, but it seems weird the only thing holding them on is that "knot" at the end.

I have the same reservations, but there's lots of people using them for recovery and really like them. Some I've seen are rated up to 30k!

I personally like metal over synthetic, doubles as a weapon when things go wrong also (lol)

Check out the brand "All-Top 4x4" on amazon. They make some nicely priced stuff.
