RE­LEASE TEN­SION

4 x 4 Australia - - Technique -

7When you’re back on solid ground and your 4x4 is sta­ble, re­lease any ten­sion off the winch line and be­gin dis­con­nect­ing your re­cov­ery equip­ment. Leave the damper on un­til last and never step across a winch line even if it’s not un­der ten­sion. When run­ning the winch line back onto your winch, keep some load on it and guide it onto the drum as neatly and tightly as pos­si­ble. A loose or messy winch line al­lows outer lay­ers to pull through the lower lay­ers of line, be­com­ing tan­gled and com­pli­cat­ing your next re­cov­ery.
