Built these tie down hooks for trailering. Just used a thick wall angle iron and angled the edges.

Do you use a slip hook then or a clevis?
I use 4 10,000 lbs double hook ratchet straps on the tractor. Then I have two 1.5 inch 3000 lbs sex straps I use to secure the attached implements.

The brackets will hold, my only comment is the two bolts holding the bracket are shorter by the thickness of the angle iron and not using the full depth of the threaded hole. Just my .02
