Actually, they're not tow hooks. They're subway train hand rings. And they are definitely not gonna hold up if you intend to tow your car from them. :lol:

The fact you're calling them tow hooks is probably why no one is responding- they have no clue what you're talking about. :lol:

hahahaha. They serve no purpose really (excpet to show how low your jtin is). And unless you stole it like the bosozoku who started the trend (to show how "badass" they were, lol) then they don't symbolize anything special either, just get a towe hook!

That would be interesting.. a subway hanger from an American subway train. Could be the start of a new trend if you pull it off. Represent the home town and all that.

I'm wondering if the DART trains even have hand rings, every subway or small train I've ever been on has just had steel bars to hold on to from the ceiling, I think the hand rings may just be an oddity in themselves. :shrug:

the way you described it in the first post I thought you were talking about the weld on triangle tow hooks you can buy from tractor supply (yes I am a redneck) like the one we put on my "convertible" 4 door Lumina. (yes that big of a redneck)
