USE A DAMPER

4 x 4 Australia - - Technique -

Be­fore ten­sion­ing the rope or ca­ble, at­tach at least one damper to the line. There are two pos­si­ble haz­ards: ei­ther the ca­ble snaps and acts like a gi­ant whip, or a hook or bow shackle fails. With that in mind, best prac­tice is to at­tach a damper in the mid­dle of the line and a sec­ond damper as close as pos­si­ble to any metal com­po­nents. If you’re in a bind, then a heavy jumper, a tarp, Driza-bone or a towel will also do the job.
