Default PSA: Connecting two straps together with a shackle/clevice

Every other year I hear about someone getting killed while doing this. There are other methods available to connect the straps.

1. Just loop the two straps together.
2. Just wait for someone with a winch.

I've got a fancy piece of wood that some old dude made. It's all routed up and shellacked real nice. He makes a sweet piece of wood. Anyways, it does the same thing.
