Lightbulb Get hooked on with rear TOW HOOK!!! DIY...

Okay everyone, since a lot of poeple have problem wondering how the heck people can install a tow hook. It is pretty simple. I myself got stuck it for a while until I keep staring at the hook and the stock hook, wondering how the heck would I get this thing on...

You will need 2 wrenches, socket 13/16 and 3/4 for DATUM1 Towhook kit.

On the this hatch, the hook bolt on the existing stock hook so there is no need to mod...
First check out my rear hook on my hatch. Very stock huh??


Take a look at my tools and hook supplies.


Now this step might be import, you must place the 2 bolt in and tighten firmly to adjust your alignment on the hook.


Tighting down your last bolt and firmly push. By pushing, rocking to see if your hook is not stable. iF it does not rock, then your done.... This how it looks like...


This how it looks like when I was done with it.

It shouldn't bug your rear lips when you have the hook on... It should be fine with the rear lip, actually makes it better. Try looking at http://ww.datum1.com and see some various colors availible.

It offers less of a chance of tow trucks messing up your lowered car if the need for a tow ever arises.

Most theives won't have access to a tow truck.... but he is in a highly populated area known for problems with theft so his chance of getting towed anyway is pretty high compared to many other parts of the country. Then again, they could tow it without the tow hook.

The tow hook just being there just means it's going to be a flashy little piece on your car that would be relatively easy for someone to walk away with it.
