    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.
