While hitch pins are very convenient, they are a little bit larger than what would be ideal. I might be over thinking this but the method I'll be using these brackets and hardware is one place I don't want a failure.

The below images feature the hardware kit (ORK) available from Hi Lift, but I chose to make my own. Hardware is either grade 8 or grade 70 where it applies. The kit only uses grade 43 chain. Overbuild, overbuild....

This is my basic setup for Hi Lift winching. I have made a few changes since the pics were taken but you'll get the idea.

For clarification's sake, the nose piece chain/grab hook gets linked to the anchored transport chain. Top of the jack (JackMate) get's connected to a tow strap that connects the vehicle. The bracket at the base with chain is the tensioning bracket whose function is to temporarily tension the chain after the nose piece has gone a full cycle. It then will connect to the anchored chain and allow the jack to release the nose piece and set up for another cycle. It sounds more complicated than it really is...

To explain my paranoia, many years ago, I suppose I was 20, I was helping a CJ and a FJ40 from a dire situation. Long story short, the recovery straps failed and came flying back like a bullet and nearly grazed my forehead. An inch or two closer and it would have been lights out, forever for me. It was a gift that my mistake was pardoned and I wasn't injured. No more mistakes for me....

Yes lots of energy in tight lines...
No need for it to be steel either...
Rope, nylon strap, Wire rope, even chain will fail given the wrong situation...
Make sure you are always safe...

This is an arena where all too often the wrong recovery gear is employed by ignorant/uninformed 4x4 enthusiasts. YouTube is replete with examples of recoveries gone bad. It's amazing that more people aren't killed but some are.
Kinetic straps are probably the most potentially destructive followed closely by cable when they fail. The situations are often times exacerbated by the incorrect rigging and using shackles where they shouldn't be. Consider the destructive forces in play when a kinetic strap fails and has a 2 pound shackle attached to it. One can never be too careful. Everyone is supposed to be able to go home at the end of the day....
I go a step further than most and make my own tow straps which can also be used for light recoveries. I use mil spec type 26 webbing (15,000 #) and a resin impregnated webbing (12,000#?) which I strong as all get out. Hardware (shackles) is either Columbus McKinnon (6 3/4T) or Crosby (4 3/4 T). This is no place to economize in....
