    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

    If you use the hook beware you don't tip load it IE make sure the load is inline with the winch cable pull.
    If you use shackles then use D for Chain and Bow for Straps
    If you attach your winch line to the shackle pin then you may want to pack the shackle pin so the line is centered esp if it is a metal thimble
    A lot of unknown vocabulary here for me. Can someone help me understand these?

    "If you have a moused hook..." What type of hook is that?

    "If you have a hook that is attached by a clevis pin..." I kind of think I know this one, but I'd rather confirm... Is this that pin that is locked by an aluminium wire similar to castle nuts locking pin?

    "If you use shackles then use D for Chain and Bow for Straps" This one I am completely lost.

    "If you attach your winch line to the shackle pin then you may want to pack the shackle pin so the line is centered esp if it is a metal thimble" What does he means with pack the shackle pin?

    Thanks!
