    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Thanks ET, I think I will have to set one of these up to really understand the failsafe. Is there a purple strap doubled on itself thru the eye of the two straps to the vehicle and then thru the ey of the tow strap? How are the thin blue tethers secured to the straps - simply tied?

    Hiya Cobber,

    There aren't two straps to the vehicle, it is a standard equaliser bridle setup

    The anti-recoil tethers are sewn onto the respective bridle or snatch strap approx 1 metre back from the rolled eye.

    The 'purple' on the equaliser bridle is a protective sleeve that you can slide to the appropriate point.

    Setup is simple, you just attach the anti-recoil strap eyes to a separate point from the 'snatch' anchor point/s.
    I use soft shackles preferably.
    If the anti-recoil strap isn't long enough for some reason you can use rope or a sling or whatever to lengthen

    Takes all of 30 seconds and no need to rrse around with dampers
