Recovery safety items from SecureTech

21 September 2010

Recovery is a dangerous business and all too often pictures are posted on the internet showing a recovery failure, often with disastrous consequences.

After considerable testing and evaluation of product in the market place SecureTech have recently released a variety of products aimed at making recovery much safer and reducing the risk of injury or damage to vehicles.

When joining straps, forget about the old way of looping them together using a newspaper, branch or grass to prevent the fabric binding making it impossible to separate afterwards. New on the market is the recovery link from Secure Tech which also fulfils this function but has a safety loop which stops it from falling out when the ropes are not under tension.

Traditionally, when joining two ropes or straps when extra length was required the experts told us to put a branch, rolled up newspaper or magazine in the loops to ensure that the two loops would not bind on each other when the material was stretched under the tension of the recovery. However what would happen if one is stuck in the bush without wood or reading material?

With that in mind SecureTech recently facilitated training for the staff of several branches of the “Outdoor Warehouse” group at Base 4, the headquarters of the Four Wheel Drive Club of SA.
