Why You Need Tow Straps AND D-Ring Shackles
Anyone that is enjoying the “Rustic Life” also knows the reality of living outside of major roads and cities: you get stuck! Whether it is muddy roads, soft paths in the woods, off-road vehicles or snowmobiles, our vehicles get themselves into precarious situations. The standard prep is to have a tow rope or maybe we have a truck with a wench on it, and those are good solutions. However, the best way to be ready for any “stuck” situation is to have not only tow ropes, but also a set of D-Ring Shackles that allows the proper linkage.
We have used tow straps for a while, and have had varying degrees of luck with how we attach them from one vehicle to another. Then, we got a tip about a tow rope company that not only makes excellent and dependable tow ropes, but also makes an accompanying set of D-Ring Shackles that easily fit on the ropes and attaches easily to any type of vehicle. These products are made exceptionally well, and they won’t break down. In regards to devices that help us get out of trouble, dependability and ease of use are incredibly important.
