Reviews

Looks like the perfect solution to protect that tie down ring. A good value for the cost.

We install these on all of our customers airplanes. Our Cessna 150 has one. Well worth not tearing your tie down ring off and causing bulkhead damage.

Installed this on a Cardinal as my son is using the plane for flight training. The tie down ring bolt was too short to re-install, so I used a straight bolt and a few washers to install it. Fits great and will prevent a tail strike as the spring steel hits the ground prior to the tailcone.

Just what I needed for my planes. Tired of seeing the tiedown ring worn away because instructors want students to keep the nose up. Kinda tight, but a bit of rolling works great.

Nicely made, hole was too big for my eyelet, needed a washer and the radius was too small to fit around the eyelet. Bent it the way it needed to be and put a washer on it and works good.
