Be safe when you winch.

This video (found by luck) shows why you should always be very careful when winching.

Basics: 1-Use a heavy duty snatch block (always)
2-Open your hood (just in case, see video)
3-Use a dampening blanket on tow line
4-Do not allow morons to help you.
5-Ensure your winch is suitable for the task at hand.

Ok, guys. Throw in your tips too.

yea that guy got lucky, you should never use a hook on a winch. always a shackle. or if a hook, make sure it has a safety latch on it..
and never ever drink and use a vehicle in any way..

I've seen this happen through a back window. I was watching a bunch of fords try and pull each other out after getting stuck so I pulled up and just watched! No blanket on either side and the hook went through the stuck guys rear window!

Never thought to use winch cable as a snatch strap before. Thanks for the tip...

The caliber of intelligence here is obvious.

1. Miller light cans in hand while wheeling
2. Cut out bed and bench seat in bed
3. Sticking bare finger in W/S hole
4. Not driving a Tacoma
5. Winching procedure failure

I think the OP covered all the winching basics. Especially #4.
