Hook from Sherman tank
http://the.shadock.free.fr/sherman_m...ine_doors.html

The Ordnance Department directed the installation of trailer towing pintels on Shermans starting in April 1943. However, it was found that on M4A4s, many bent up in service, causing a misalignment of the rear engine mount, and making it impossible to open the engine access doors. Consequently, "It was immediately burnt off as many new tanks M4A4 as possible," and further installation was suspended. The Brits mention that 15 - 20 M4A4s "slipped through" Lend Lease with the pintels. This would have been the first or "long" type towing pintel. It is thought that this problem wasn't limited to M4A4s, and led to the design of the "short" pintel, installed on second generation series Shermans. The British were unsuccessful in their request for the US to manufacture and install their leaf spring towing design on Lend Lease Shermans.

Hook from Sdkfz 250
The Sd.Kfz. 250 (German: Sonderkraftfahrzeug 250; 'special motor vehicle') was a light armoured halftrack, very similar in appearance to the larger Hanomag-designed Sd.Kfz. 251, and built by the DEMAG firm, for use by Nazi Germany in World War II. Most variants were open-topped and had a single access door in the rear.
