For those of you that don't know the Model X comes with a tow hook - apparently this is for the front of the car should it need to be towed for various reasons. The tow hook is over 13" long and 3/4" diameter cold-rolled steel with a steel loop on the end - this is common on german cars to have a tow hook in the car - makes things easier on the side of the road.
playing with it the other day - working to find a solution for mounting the front plate without drilling the bumper - I've used tow hook mounted plates on my other cars to avoid doing damage to the front bumper covers…
Well the Model X's tow hook is reverse threaded!! You turn it left to the tighten instead of turning it right…no judgement here - just a fun fact!
that is all!
enjoy your X's people!
