Safety and application instructions


If kinetic ropes and kinetic belts are used incorrectly, there is a very high risk of personal injury or property damage!

Due to the approximately 20% stretch of kinetic recovery straps and 30% stretch of the kinetic recovery ropes, the forces generated by the momentum of the pulling vehicle can easily exceed the breaking limits of anchoring points, connecting elements (shackles) or even the kinetic rope or belt.

The elasticity of the kinetic ropes and straps can create a skidding effect and result in serious personal injury or serious damage. Manufacturer or dealer cannot be held liable for any damage or injury.

Safety and application instructions

  • The kinetic rope and belt used must match the weight of the vehicle. Undersized ropes/belts can break, oversized ropes/belts can build up excessive forces.
  • Only recover with kinetic ropes/straps if the weight of the towing vehicle and the vehicle being towed are similar. If there are large differences in weight, choose other recovery methods!
  • Only recover with a kinetic rope/strap if both vehicles have anchor points connected to the chassis and approved by the manufacturer for off-road recovery. Towing eyes (permanently installed or screw-in) and trailer hitches are NOT suitable for off-road recovery - regardless of whether they involve kinetic or rigid material !
  • Only attach kinetic ropes and belts with soft shackles with sufficient breaking strength (higher than that of the kinetic rope or belt). If there is no suitable anchor point for soft shackle on the vehicles, choose another recovery method!
  • Never use damaged kinetic ropes or straps. Visual inspection before each use! (Basically applies to all recovery materials!)
  • Never double or tie kinetic ropes or straps!
  • Do not use kinetic ropes or straps as winch rope extensions!
  • If there are several anchor points on the vehicle, always choose the passenger side and always let the passenger get out - applies to towing and towed vehicles.
  • When rescuing, do not drive further than 35% of the rope length or 25% of the belt length - set a mark beforehand.
  • Before the rescue begins, set different clear signals (e.g. honking) for the start and termination of the rescue.
