Thats the problem though... people carry a 2" strap then take it balls to the wall and snap it.
I was at the mounds and watched them break 4 - 2" straps in a row doing this with a mild stuck. Too many people assume you have to really yank ANY strap
Bullfrog came in with a 6" strap and slow and easy yanked him out.
