I would suspect that is to make it harder to use a non-Tesla supplied part and potentially cause damage. No towing eye on mine, so I never realized that. Or perhaps that's some kind of standard. I've never looked at the towing eye on the cars that I've had that had them.

I suspect it may have to do with the normal twisting direction of rope to avoid the hook unscrewing as the rope tightens.

FWIW, my last car, a VW wagon, had reversed threads on the tow eye as well so I think that's unique to tow eyes, not Teslas.

so that's what that dam thing is, I found it in the charge cable bag and have no idea where it goes, thinking it goes under the nose peace up front for pulling the car onto a flat bed or maybe a seat belt hold down for a very big person:tongue:

Sounds like a look in the manual is suggested.
