I was wheeling with a few guys this weekend in deep snow and we had to connect two tow straps together.
One guy went into the back of his jeep and got a small wood dowl rod and made a special knot with the rod. He explained that you never want steel in the system if something breaks and also if you need to remove tension you can pull the wood out like a pin. it all made sense to me.
Here is the question does anyone have a picture of how you make this safe knot. I would like to get the extra bits and pieces and put it in my off roading kid but if I cant make the knot it wont do any good.
