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.

Most people who are looking for a hitch will typically get one of three different types of hitches: shackle hitches, ball mount hitches, or receiver mount hitches. People who simply want to have the highest weight capacity will normally purchase a shackle hitch since they have impressive towing weight capacities. However, if you would prefer the design of a ball mount hitch or receiver mount hitch, they are all viable options which are equally as easy to use once they are installed.

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.
Just got my shipment in the mail today. I got the Recovery Tow Strap, Shackle Hitch Receiver, Premiu...m Bungee Cord Set, and 2 D-Ring Shackles. Every piece of equipment feels super solid, and I can’t wait to put them to the test with my Z71 Silverado. As an added bonus, the shipment came incredibly fast, and the shipping was free! I highly recommend this company and their products.
Considering a hitch pin is meant to be loaded in shear vs the bolt in tensile plus the larger minimum diameter of the pin...I'd go with the pin. The actual block depends on what brand you buy. I think my Smittybuilt is a solid chunk of (Chinese) steel that I really doubt is going to fail before something else. The shackle on the other hand, you'd be better off not getting the Smittybuilt Chinese version.
Their yields are 92 ksi and 130 ksi, so a hitch pin would be 27,600 lbf and 39,000 lbf before leaving their elastic region. Where the difference in grade 5 and 8 comes in is that grade 5 has min tensile yield of 120 ksi and grade 8 150 ksi, so each could potentially fail at 40,000 lbf or 50,000 lbf respectively, so obviously there is a broader region where a grade 5 bolt would bend (from 92 to 120 ksi) compared to a grade 8 (from 130 to 150 ksi). But notice that the grade 5 bolt fails before the grade 8 even hits its elastic limit.

Third, think about whether you want one hole or two through the receiver block for the hitch pin. The advantage of two is that it lets you insert the shackle hitch with the bolt either horizontal or vertical. The difference depends on whether there's any height difference between the two vehicles. If the vehicle being rescued is down in a ditch for example, it may be helpful to insert the shackle with the bolt horizontal to get some vertical movement.

I’ve had this 20 ft strap combo for about 10 months now just in case I ever needed it. I was waiting till I actually used it to give it a review. I used it today to pull my brothers lifted f250 with it. The shackle was real heavy duty and easy to take the hitch off and put the shackle in. It gives you that peace of mind that it won’t come off the ball hitch. The Strap is built tough and durable. I do like the double loop ends on the strap because I feel like that’s sturdier than the metal hooks straps. It was actually my first time pulling a vehicle with my truck and the 20 ft strap was actually plenty long for the speeds we went. We had our phones on and constantly communicating so we could be on the same page when breaking. I traveled 3 miles pulling a heavy f250 at no more than about 35-40 mph. The 20 ft strap was plenty room for braking at that speed and enough to give u peace of mind of not feeling like the vehicle your pulling is gonna slam into you. I like the bag to keep everything in. Mine fits perfect underneath the back seats of my ram. Great buy. Pulling my brothers truck one time paid for itself in not having to get a tow truck.
