Default Pacific Aero Tow Hook

After long discussions with the manufacturer I purchased the new and improved Pacific Aero tow hook. The components arrived yesterday and I was quiet impressed with the design and quality of the hook. This hook has been designed so that the connecting ring cannot slip forward which would allow greater forces required to release the mechanism. Overall the quality of the release is superb, I will be doing several test release attitudes to determine the load force required for release.
