Serious Vehicle Recovery Safety
The forces involved in extracting a vehicle stuck in mud, snow or sand are enormous, which makes the Ditch Hitch® the safest way to free a vehicle as it’s designed specifically for handling dynamic loads. Towing chains, straps with hooks and other systems can easily support heavy weight but they are better suited to static-load applications like hoisting. They are prone to breaking under dynamic loads experienced during vehicle recovery. Used in conjunction with nylon recovery straps or ropes with eyelets, no metal fixtures, the Ditch Hitch® eliminates the use of chains, slings with tail chains, tow ropes with hooks, shackles, trailer balls and pintle hitches etc.
