Handy hints when using your strap

Line up the rescue vehicle as directly as possible in front of the trapped vehicle
Fully uncoil the strap and attach one end to the trapped vehicle's tow hook. Attach the other end to the rescue vehicle's tow hook. Be sure the strap is not going to interfere with any of the vehicle's working parts when tension is applied. Avoid sharp objects that may cut the strap. Never use a strap that is badly damaged - they do wear out and it is not worth the risk of sebsequent damage or injury.

Never tie knots in the strap.

When the area between the two vehicles is safely cleared, take up the slack with the rescue vehicle. Back up approximately 2m and take a running start. The amount of slack required will vary according to the amount of traction available. If the first attempt isd unsuccessful, try again using a rocking motion with the rescue vehicle.

If, after several attempts the vehicle remains trapped, consider pulling from the opposite direction if possible. If the vehicle is severly trapped, a winch may be necessary.

When finished, ensure the strap is dry before rolling it up and storing. The strap can be cleaned using mild soap.

Doubles as an excellent towing strap - but avoid dragging.
