Tow pulled off my Frint Bumper!!

Quick question. How much of a load can the tow hook handle? Say someone got stuck on snow would you be able to pull then out with it? Or is that too much of a load?

the key is not to jerk the tow hook

but finally - depends on how stuck the car is (meaning immovable) and the angle being pulled

The OP had a quick snapping action - thus the instant removal
