We learned this trick a decade ago on our S197 Mustang - strapping cars down through the wheels sucks - it is time consuming, can scratch the wheels with the axle straps, and We made some of these bolt-on "tie downs" and as soon as we started towing our C6 we made a modified version of these and they worked GREAT. People have seen us tie down with these and wanted some of their own, so we're releasing them for the C6.
This makes strapping your C6 down into a trailer take "seconds" instead of "minutes". We don't know of a better, more secure, faster way to strap a C6 down in the rear than this.
Vorshlag makes these stout, 1/4 inch thick, CNC cut, steel tow loops in-house. These are easily mounted to the lower rear suspension mounting holes on the rear axle housing. These are highly visible and offer much easier access to hook your tie-down straps to directly, with much less hazard or hassle, getting your car loaded and tied down to the trailer in seconds. These C6 versions are angled 90 degrees to line up properly for "crossing the rear straps" in an X pattern, to hold it rearward plus side-to-side.
- 1 Pair of Tow Loops
- 1/4" Thick Steel, Laser Cut
- Quick Access Point for tow hooks to strap a car down at the rear, to your trailer
- Pre Bent for better alignment when crossing the rear tow straps
- Powder Coated Bright Red for visibility for you or track safety crews - these can also be used for "off track extraction, if you let the tow truck driver know where they are.
We have used these on the rear of C6 Corvette for dozens of trips in the trailer, and on a few customers cars as well, before making a production run and releasing then to the public. Shipping weight is 2.0 pounds.
During installation we recommend using a drop of blue Loc-Tite and "paint marking" the bolt head, to visibly see if it has moved. Check these marks, as with any suspension bolt torque/position marking, during your pre-track inspections before every outing.
