I was concerned about pulling on or with the loader so I made up a frame mounted pull / tie-down point. After machining the eye and adding an oilite bushing, it was welded to a piece of 1/2" plate. Attached using 4 new 14x1.5x40mm 10.9 bolts.

I have a similar setup on my Bobcat CT122.

I like it. It's similar to towing from the drawbar, (which is the only recommended tow point for tractors - based on their technical manuals), for obvious reasons, to those with common sense. (y)
It is WAY better from a strength and safety standpoint than bucket hook(s) or using any part of bucket/loader.
