For a while now I've been after a tow bar, with the intention of using it to tow a small utility trailer in the near future and a caravan in the distant future. One popped up locally on ebay for a good price.
So I grabbed it, repainted it and fitted it. Just waiting on somebody or a good tutorial and some bravery to tackle the wiring.

I will be replacing the standard ball with a ball and pin hitch soon (because I think they look better, I do already have an alko tow ball I can use for towing a caravan when required)
I do have a couple of questions I'm hoping somebody can help me with -
I'm looking to purchase some recovery gear, realistic worst case scenario would be getting stuck on a field in mud/wet grass or snow. Most liable vehicle around here to get pulled out by would be a landrover or similar.
Currently I have a kinetic strap that can go around the tow bar or through the front recovery eye, it has hooks on both ends as can be seen below (if I'm using the wrong terms)

I would like to purchase what would be required to help a kind passer by pull me out.
I'm thinking a couple of soft shackles, some D rings and a strap, what's the consensus on this? Any recommendations?
Researching recovery seems to take me down the route of being very stuck, needing winches etc. (BTW I do carry a military folding shovel and a form of home made recovery boards)
