Tow Rope

CAUTION – TOW ROPES CAN BE DANGEROUS. USE WITH CARE! NEVER ATTACH THIS ROPE TO A CHAIN!!!

*When attaching this rope to a vehicle that is going to be pulled, or to a vehicle that is going to pull it, never attach the rope to a hook, clevis, chain, cable or other metal object that is weaker than the rated strength of this rope. To do so will create a dangerous condition in that even thought the rope will not break, the hook, clevis, chain, cable or other metal object to which the rope is attached may tear from the vehicle with extreme force which might result in property damage, bodily injury or even death.

*Inspect the rope each time prior to its use and never use a cut of damaged rope.

*Never allow the rope to come into contact with metal surfaces during usage except at designed connection points on each end. Use slide protectors if provided on the rope to prevent such contact when possible. If not possible, do not use the rope!

*Never use a rope to pull with if load to be pulled is in excess of the rated strength of the rope as shown.
