Towing Rope Hook Up and Attachment
The tow rope/strap should be attached as directly as possible between vehicles. Hook directly to the frame, tow hook, or class 2 or 3 trailer hitch. Do not attach directly to the bumper. A looped end may be wrapped around axle.
Do not hook back onto the tow rope/strap with the hooked end. Hooks will cut through a rope/strap under tension as well as weaken the strength of the rope strap. Sharp edges can cut a tow rope/strap and should be avoided. Pad or protect the rope/strap with rubber hose, newspaper, or a piece of carpet.
