YouTube algorithms have landed this in my lap and I immediately thought of you guys and gals. I'm sure I've simply "been lucky" many times in my life by setting myself (and a buddy) up for this kind of tragedy. It's a decent video that, in my opinion, needs to be seen by everyone towing and/or 4 wheeling.

I never liked pulling off the hitch; I always use the chain loops on the receiver if I have to pull something.
I also never pull with a tie-downs strap, I've got a 10K tow strap and it stays in the truck box at all times; I need to get a snatch rope and a bigger tow strap.

A tragic, but excellent video! I was taught about this hazard when I joined the Air Force. The guy mowing around our shops got his big mower stuck in a ditch and we had to use our Dodge bobtail to pull him out. The Staff Sergeant working with me warned me to stay out of the line the tow strap was making between the two vehicles. After watching this video I'm going to be even more mindful how I tow.

Do we need this thread stickied in the Lounge for everyone to contribute safety warnings?

I got this one on the faceplace this week. When it comes to safety equipment, ONLY BUY FROM REPUTABLE VENDORS. I'll go further to recommend buying from their websites so you don't end up buying from an eBay scammer pretending to be the vendor.

Liberals telling me what to do here in Canada. Next, Going to tell my wife she has to put on my Hockey Helmet when gardening. Do we even have a Aussie Member? They just elected a bonkers global warming ******. It is all good, just keeping Kenny and DeltaFoxtrot2Exray4 occupied.
