Use common sense and ALWAYS KEEP SAFETY THE TOP PRIORITY and ensure your application is verified for proper sizing prior to use. Remember knots in a rope or the use of a nylon rope while it is wet will have a negative impact on the rope’s strength.
- Avoid abrasive surfaces and any sharp edges.
- Use shackles of an appropriate strength for the rope and consider switching to soft shackles for increased safety.
- Always check the splice before and during attachment to each vehicle.
- Test before use. Try light pulls to test attachment before pulling at maximum force.
- Keep spectators out of the tow zone.
- A Bowline knot is recommended if the rope must be knotted. This will undo most easily after use.
- A knot can reduce a rope’s strength by as much as half.*

- Crawl: the first stage is a simple traction extraction put pressure on the rope and seeing if the stuck vehicle moves.
- Walk: The second stage is a walking pace of 2-3 mph that’s actually a lot of force!
- Run: Third Stage is a run about 5-6 mph. This speed will exert a tremendous amount of force!
- Make sure your attachment point is up to the task and use only with rated frame-mounted recovery points.
NOTE*MINIMUM BREAKING STRENGTH (MBS) IS THE MINIMUM FORCE NECESSARY TO CAUSE A PIECE OF RECOVERY GEAR TO FAIL.
Working Load Limit (WLL) is the maximum working load designed by the manufacturer. This load represents a force that is much less than that required to make the lifting equipment fail or yield.
