I am trying to find a tow hook to fit to a 2.6m FlyFly DG1000 glider. Any ideas who sells them? TIA

I guess I described it incorrectly... I am after a fitting which I can connect to a hi-start line, so it would be mounted under the airframe just a bit forward of the CG. I think both of the ones you suggest are designed for aero-towing instead.

What about a small piece of ply and a modified cup-hook? That's what I always used to use.

easy

buy a box of 1" x 5/32 bolts cut the head off bend at 90 deg's and put a nut at the end of the thread and an anchot nut on the end just like the photo that way you can have as many as you want.
