Inspect before each use. Do not use a damaged strap. Avoid dragging the strap. Do not tie strap into knots. Do not attach strap to bumpers. Avoid contact with hot exhaust systems. Do not exceed Strap Work Load Limits. Attachment points must be suitable for the application and should exceed the break strength of the strap. Detached connection points can become deadly projectiles. Stand far away from the vehicle and strap while under tension. Never stand near or in line of a strap under tension. DO NOT SHOCK LOAD THE STRAP. You must take into account all factors such as suction and incline to ensure that you maintain control of all materials and components used for recovery, including dynamic loading and tension. If you are not capable of determining loading factors, use load measuring devices or equipment controls to avoid overloading. If these options are not available, DO NOT USE THE VEHICLE STRAP. IMPROPER USE MAY RESULT IN INJURY, DEATH AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. Avoid edges or surfaces that could damage the strap. Use protection to prevent damage to the strap. Store strap in a cool, dark, dry location, free of environmental and mechanical damage.
Remove the strap from service and do not use for any application, if any of the following are visible:
Acid or Caustic Burns, Melting or Charring of any part of the strap, Ultraviolet/Sunlight Damage, Broken or worn stitching, Excessive Abrasive Wear, Holes, Tears, Cuts, Snags or Punctures and/or other visible damage that causes doubt as to the strength of the strap.
