Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer Towing Question...

I have been checking my reference books and photos to try to find what towing shackles were used on the Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer.
The only reference which I can find states ".....On the rear left mudguard there was a box containing 15 grousers....and two stirrups with connecting screws for attaching the tow cable....." but I cannot find a photograph of the type of shackle used.
Does anyone have conclusive information, preferably a contemporary photo which shows what type of shackle was used?
Thank you in advance for any help in this matter.
