Some simple advice for attaching tow straps together

Well i was wondering how to attach two tow straps together so after a little research i found some really good ways of doing so safely. All that is required is a small piece of hardwood dowel rod. The first two are my favorites with the second one being the easiest. Safe and effective, no knots to undo and no flying shackles to kill anybody.

If at first you don't succeed, don't try skydiving

Have used that first one many times! Even a hard stick or thick piece of tree limb will work if you're out in the sticks and forgot your dowel rod at home.

Pretty much anything to prevent the straps from wrapping too tight to themselves will work lol
