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.

Click link for more info on how not to kill yourself or others

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

I wouldn't use a branch this large, but just so you can get the idea. I have used a 1/2" branch with just the same results.

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.
