    Default Lunette ID?

    I found an inexpensive one at a yard sale today, to add to my hitch collection.

    This is a strange one. At first it looks like it was made to fit a common receiver, but the shank is only 1 3/4 square, and the pin hole (3/4 inch) is vertical instead of horizontal.

    Anyone have an idea what its intended use might be?

    I modified an internet photo, attached below.

    It fits snugly into a scrap 2 inch tube I have, and I can drill a 5/8 horizontal pin hole.

    Might that be the end 'eye' to fit a trailer or hay wagon pull pole or arm? and meant to hook up to a pintle hitch?

    bcp,

    That is a tow eye for the front bumper of either a Freightliner or Volvo big truck. They are usually stored in the side box of the truck. When needed, they are inserted through a square opening in the front bumper and attached to the front frame with a pin. If the truck needs to be towed, this is the lift point for the wrecker to hook up to the semi tractor.

    Thanks for the ID. There was some other big truck stuff at the sale, too.
