There are multiple ways to secure a tow strap to your vehicle but one of the most common types of securement is the anchor shackle. Anchor shackles are a safe, sturdy way to help your recovery operation by securing the tow strap firmly to your vehicle. These solid steel shackles are made from solid steel and are designed with your safety in mind. The construction of these shackles is set up to stretch which is a much safer alternative to snapping abruptly.
Many people use their hitch when trying to recover a vehicle but hitches are not designed like shackles and can turn into a deadly projectile in a matter of seconds. Many people have been seriously injured by hitches so it is important to NEVER use a ball hitch as a recovery point!
