I'm talking about the metal shaft that runs from the plate back to screw into the frame. My concern is that if it's anywhere near as solid as the tow hook itself, any reasonable bump would be passed straight through to the frame. I was wondering if there was one that used a less solid construction, stable enough to hold the plate steady at speed, but soft or brittle enough to give in a modest impact.
