USA made D Ring Receiver shackle

Recommended Posts

Trying to find a vetical / horizontal D Ring Receiver shackle for the 1500. Leading contenders

 

Viking Multi-Hitch (possibly original Ultimate Trail Products, UTP) 100525

Rigid Hitch TSM-22-D 7/8" shackle pin!

Metalcloak Hitch & D Ring Recovery Kit

http://www.metalcloak.com/Hitch-D-Ring-Recovery-Kit-p/3964.htm

 

Leading contender appears to be the Metalcloak product.

 

I was looking at the Bulldog BDW20037, but I can't see "Made in USA" anywhere.

I just send them a question. Like the looks...

2TGL is a good company that is made in the USA.

Not made in USA.

From a review on Amazon:

By K. A. S.on April 12, 2017

Size: D Ring Tow Hitch|Verified Purchase

This product was made in China but has a finish, appearance and feel like it was 'Made in America'. Very solid. Was well packaged in a form fit box of its own. Don't get me wrong, I'm an 'American Made' product type of guy but this would compete with the best of them. Just couldn't justify spending 2 1/2 times the money I spent for this one for 'American Made' for the Polaris Ranger UTV. I also like the fact of the holes drilled for both a horizontal and vertical axis movement of the shackle when attaching to receiver. Very pleased with this purchase.

If you want a true Made in the USA hitch, go to your local welding and machine shop and have them custom build you one that YOU designed.

There is an item on flea buy, seller is "rigid_hitch"

 

Rigid Hitch Inc. TSM-22 Tow Strap Shackle Mount For 2" Receivers

 

https://www.rigidhitch.com/products/Enhanced_Tow_Strap_Shackle_Mount_For_2__Receivers,TSM-22-D

 

"Pin holes are cross drilled giving you the option to use the shackle in a side to side or up/down option. Hitch pin and clip included."

 

Best I can tell it is made here. There is a difference between the flea buy image (horizontal pin only) and the drawing (cross drilled). Rigid changed the design in 2017 and added a vertical hitch pin hole...

 

Waiting on an answer... OBTW, it has a 7/8" shackle bolt. At this point, it -MAY- be slightly cheaper to buy this on flea buy from Rigid... Might...

It came a few days ago, and I finally opened the boxes and pulled out some American steel. As expected, slid right into my 1500 OEM hitch.

 

Rigit TSM-22-D

2017 production, hitch pins vertical and horizontal. Nice black powder coat.
