Safe Use of Tow Ropes, Cables and Chains

Think about these questions when selecting a tow rope, chain, or cable for pulling something. A lot of power will be attached to whatever towing device you choose, easily stretching it to the limit. When that limit is reached, something will break. The hook, chain or cable will become a missile that could cause a terrible injury or death as it rebounds.
