Crazy Pic and Story of Recovery Accident

Check this out... A good lesson for the experienced and inexperienced... some of you may have seen this else where.

http://www.southernhighrollers.com/tips/articles/a_near_miss_from.htm


Just read another article where a guy last october wasn't so lucky in an identical situation!

Do you have to worry about the same thing with just a single strap situation? What if you have no choice but to double up straps?

Thats why you only use straps with loops and when you need to join 2 together you loop one through itself after passing it through the other straps loop.

Here do it like this

Clevis hook! Holy poop. That's pure insanity.

Not just a clevis hook, but also how they attached to the other vehicle. It sounds like they just put the hook on the strap into whatever they could on the frame.

Anchor points people, anchor points.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.

I like to loop it onto a mirror myself, or sometimes I just hold the strap in my hand if I am feeling lazy.

I keep thinking of this

I have laughed dmy ass off watching the snow tow video.....

I personnally like to hook my straps around the driveshaft or transmission, i mean those aren't really something important that you need on a daily basis...

If you're going to attach multiple straps together, you may as well just make it long enough to wrap around the entire vehicle...
