    Default Bog-out

    This looks like some handy kit to have as part of your recovery gear......just hope you always have an anchor point available.

    This seems to be a great idea. Nobody making it in SA yet?

    The old Series Landys had wheel hub winches which bolt straight onto the steel wheel rims using the existing standard wheel nuts. I have a set for my Series 2A

    Those seat belts are not very strong, I have see one used in a emergency recovery. Snapped like nothing
    If Force is not the solution, not enough of it was applied....

    Note, that these are placed on the outside of the wheel... The oldies were thinking about practicality when they thought about this. You can even steer into the belt.. sothat it does not pull off the pulley.

    Now imagine the product mention by the OP, with the vehicle slipping in muddy conditions, or steep climbs, as they do(Anyone who has driven off road knows this), and that thing wraps itself around the axle on the inside of the wheel....

    Man... You are going to have some fun trying to get it out!

    That thing is probably going to sell like hotcakes,...... to the keyboard warriors...

    And when that happens, the replacement of CV rubber boots and brake hoses. Lots of fun.

    I watched the video as someone sent it to me on whatsapp. All I will say is that it might work if you use it on both wheels not just one side. Things always look simple on the videos made by the creators of these gimmicks.
    I will get a chair, a cold one and some shade and watch whoever used the contraption trying to get it loose. It will not be as easy as the video would want you to believe.

    I was wondering how you remove it once it's wound onto the tyre.....

    I would untie the straps from the anchor point, secure the loose ends to the rim and drive like that to a place where you can reverse to remove. If too tight tie to a new anchor point and reverse out of the straps.

    When in the army, our Land Rovers were fitted with these, and steel cables.
    We were trained to use them (always as a pair).

    When used, and out of the obstacle, the wheels are removed, the cable taken off (and discarded )and the wheels replaced.
    The cables were "use-me-once" items.

    5 Things.
    1. Great device. Have seen this before but made with seatbelt webbing, The main pull is on the two outer straight belts, the cross brace is to keep it in place, impossible to slip off the wheel. Well the one I saw was custom made to the wheel.

    If the vehicle is very stuck, you do run the risk of damage. You can easily burn your clutch, so be careful when using it.

    2. I do not understand how this would work, or the Land Rove one, if you don't use it in pairs on an open diff. If you have a diff lock, then it's logical, open diff, you ain't going to even get it to spool.

    3. It is impossible to wind it round an axle, even a IFS setup, is guarded by the hub and suspension. If you know what it looks like behind the wheel, you will understand. Rear diff same thing.

    4. Getting it off is no problem, once on hard surface you drive the opposite way that you went to put it on. There is nothing holding it so just rolls off, even if you use 3 as we did, started to get a bit full but you just drive "off" it.

    5. Make your own one, custom made for your car. 265 width, add 60mm, plus 4x the width of the webbing and double sow it to have the side braces go round the two side "pulling straps". The extra length on the middle braces is to force it to go round the tyre and form a "basket" that does the pulling, Space the braces 250mm apart for best contact on the wheel.

    The anchor will have to be straight behind or -infront.At a angle I think it can become complicated??
