The strap is fully sheathed to protect it from chafing during use. This strap is designed to rig your winch line to a solid object, such as, a tree. You’ll need a D-shackle or clevis attached to the looped ends of the strap together and attach your winch hook.
As the name suggests, the Tree Trunk Protector helps protect a tree you’d be using as an anchor from damage by the winch rope. Using wire rope directly on a tree trunk will damage the tree and possibly kill it. However, tree trunk protectors aren’t just about tree preservation, they’re about safety. You NEVER, ever want to wrap a winch line around any anchor and hook the line back onto itself. This is a dangerous practice that can lead to rope failure, and that is obviously a very bad thing.
