The Piper J-3 Tow Hook Kit is designed for safely hand propping your airplane. This allows you to attach the tie down rope to the tow hook release and to a ground tie down position. Start the engine, remove your chocks, climb into the cockpit, and release the rope by pulling the release ring located inside the cockpit. The J-3 Tow Hook Kit eliminates that unsafe moment when you untie the last tie down rope and remove your chocks then hurry into the cockpit before the plane starts rolling away.

FAA approval can be obtained for the complete tow hook and release system by following the guidelines in FAA Advisory Circular 43.13-2B, Chapter 8, titled, "Glider and Banner Tow-Hitch Installations" and the included tow hook installation instructions. Tow hook kit is not STC or PMA approved.
