In the very near future, I will be replacing my 2011 Rav 4 with a 2016 Rave xle (Canada), on the 11 I was able to screw the tow hooks into the front bumper . I am wondering does the 2016 have the same option? I used the hooks to tie down my canoe, and would like to do the same. I tried to search for a good picture of the front bumper area, beside the fog lamps, as well as the under body in the front to see if there is a tie down place for my canoe. If anyone has pictures they can post that would be great. Thanks.

Sorry for the poor mark-up. See the red dots. Does this help?

Are there ones that pop off like on the 2011 that you can then screw tow hooks in? Or is there a spot on the frame underneath the front bumper where I can tie the canoe to

Unless things changed from the 2011, it is only one. I figure I can find one at a scrap yard or somewhere else.

Tow Hook

Can you please post a Photo of the Tow Hook already installed in your 2016 Rav4?
I am planning to install a Red tow hook on my 2015 Rav4 Limited edition.
Can you give me the website where you bought the Tow hook?

Can you post some pictures on tow hooks installed on a 2013 - 2016 RAV4 since I have a 2015 Rav4 Limited.
There are no tow "hooks" for the 2013-17 Rav4, just a tow eyelet, you can see it and pics installed in this 4.3 thread, they're pretty much the same, they screw into holes behind the two removable plugs in the front bumper cover as shown in the owner's manual on about page 605.

tow "hook" one comes with the spare tire in the back, you just need to screw into one of "two" holes provided for the 2016-2017 Rav4 on the lower grille.

Tow Hook

Did you have tow hooks installed in your RAV4?

I want to install those Red colored Aluminum Tow Hooks that you can buy on eBay.
Want them just for looks, one at the Rear and one at the Front bumper passenger side.

I wish someone can post a picture How it looks like on a 2013-2016 RAV4 once a tow hook, or strap looks like?

Thanks.
