By making this shackle hitch receiver out of drop forged steel, we’re able to get the most out of the mechanical properties of the steel. This is done by not compromising the grain direction of the steel, resulting in one of the strongest, most reliable products you’ll find on the market. While other brands are forging or machining their D-ring hitch for you, we’re relying on the time-tested drop-forging method. Not only is it the best method for making a shackle hitch receiver, but it sounds pretty rugged too.

I think it would be fine for a lite recovery, I've had to use that method winching a guy out of a snow bank(he had no recovery points). I don't see how much more different it is than using a receiver slug set up with a shackle. But I guess it depends on the quality of the pin. I too have seen it demonstrated as what to do instead of using the ball.
This hitch works by mounting it directly to the frame of the vehicle behind you, allowing the two vehicles to work almost as if they were one. However, keep in mind that you should not tow heavy-duty weights or vehicles with this vehicle. Since there is not a clear weight capacity with this hitch, it is best used for loads that are lighter than the vehicle you already use.
Every off-road vehicle breaks down from time to time. If you don't want to have a bolted-on tow hook on your off-roader, a D-ring hitch placed in your receiver will provide the high-powered towing you need. You can keep them in all the time like a regular ball hitch receiver or simply have it available when needed. Tow your new rig to your house or the shop or simply have it on hand as part of your recovery kit. Tow straps easily work with the tow hitch shackle. Simply unscrew the bolt then place the loop of the strap and bolt back together. Hand tightening should be all that you need to do to keep the strap in place. Don't turn the shackle when towing because you could bend the metal. Keep the tow strap on the flat part of the D-ring and keep you and your vehicle safe.
We are going to do follow up posts on all three of these straps. We are going to go get stuck on purpose and then feel what each of these straps can do and cannot do. For the most part, I have a feeling most of these straps will be the same in terms of towing but the Rhino Strap and ARB Recovery Strap might be a little more forgiving when yanking another vehicle from being stuck. Follow along and check back to see how these straps compare against each other for off-road recovery and general towing.
Thoughts: I posted some pics so you can see the workmanship as well as the fit on my Tacoma. This is not tubed metal; it's casted and is solid (weighs about 9lbs). D-Ring fits perfectly within the block... no wiggle yet can freely spin. No paint chips either. Cannot wait to write a follow-up after my first use and am confident this will be a vital piece of my recovery kit for a long time.

Features: Tow ring lets you attach recovery strap, cable, or rope (sold separately) to be used in agricultural, industrial, or recreational applications Hitch-mounted design ensures quick, simple

Like many others on here I took a chance on a small company I had never heard of. I was expecting good quality but was actually amazed at the fit and finish on these shackles. I don’t need a set of shackles that can support the weight of a fully loaded semi, but I have them. I purchased these to attach their 20’ and 30’ straps together if I ever needed to. ( be prepared right? ) if it says Rhino on it you can believe it will be good quality. Every piece of recovery gear I carry from my shackle hitch to the shackles that may be wrapped around your axle or frame says rhino on it and if it’s you sitting in the ditch you will be glad it does.
