Robert's Autosports Racing Tow Hook

[4/14/2006] Reviewed by: Joel Scott-Herridge

Applicable to: '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

Racing Tow Hook that attaches to factory tie down location, that complies with SCCA regulations, and is available in either a silver or red powdercoat finish.

Quality of the product is very good, good solid construction, and the hook actually feels like it can support the vehicle when in tow. If you lost the original bolts for the tow hook a 3/8" bolt will line up perfectly, just make sure you have some WD-40 to spray down before you install to remove any rust from the threads.

Glen at Robert's Autosports was extremely helpful in getting me this product, as well as shipping it. He quoted me $12 to ship to Canada, which I was fine with, and ended up charging me only $6. Great customer service, keep up the great work Glen.

Roberts Front Tow Hook

[1/25/2003] Reviewed by: Steve Jackson -

Applicable to: '90 - '97 '99 + 1.6 liter 1.8 liter

Silver powder coated tow hook replaces passenger side front factory tie-down hook (better known as "baby teeth" to Miata owners). It looks identical (except for color) to the Okuyama tow hook, but is priced much lower. ($49.95)

The Roberts tow hook is of the same high quality as their other products. It fits perfectly and has an excellent finish.

This tow hook`s mounting holes match the factory holes. It uses the same 14mm bolts as the factory tie-downs. I had previously removed the factory tie-downs and also have a Roberts Grille, The only modification I had to make was to cut 2 inches off the top grille bar in order for it to clear the hook. I cut the bar w/ a hacksaw and finished the edge w/ a file. Installation took about 35 minutes. I now have a means to pull my Miata onto the road, etc., if, God forbid, the need ever arises. The tow hook is also a good conversation piece, although it is not intrusive looking and doesn`t spoil the looks of my Miata. It may also serve as a tie-down if the car is ever trailered.
