The MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPESu00a0are designed, as their name suggests, to be the kinetic element during a vehicle recovery. The MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPES produce increased kinetic power compared to flat snatch straps, with up to 30% ELONGATION providing a smoother, safer recovery. Available in lengths 2m, 3m, 5m, 10m.
The MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPESu00a0haveu00a0been designed and tested as part of the MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM. The MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM is comprised solely of MAXTRAX products and has not been tested with any third party-branded products. Critically, if the MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM is overloaded the MAXTRAX FUSE SHACKLE is designed to be the weakest link, and the expected point of failure. Accordingly, YOU MUST USE a MAXTRAX FUSE SHACKLE in the MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM during any vehicle recovery. Only use rated recovery points when connecting the MAXTRAX FUSE SHACKLE or MAXTRAX CORE SHACKLE to a vehicle. Before using the MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPESu00a0for a vehicle recovery, ensure that any person involved reads and understands ALL THE INFORMATION ON THIS packaging, and on any warning, labels attached to the MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPES.
Visually inspect the MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPESu00a0to ensure it is undamaged and in a safe and usable condition.
Attach the MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPESu00a0to the MAXTRAX HITCH, other MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPES, MAXTRAX STATICu00a0ROPE or the vehicleu2019s rated recovery points using a MAXTRAX CORE SHACKLE or MAXTRAX FUSE SHACKLE.
MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPES can be used individually or connected using MAXTRAX CORE SHACKLES to make a rope theu00a0required length for your vehicle recovery scenario.
Place the MAXTRAX RECOVERY DAMPENER over the MAXTRAX KINETIC ROPE or MAXTRAX WINCH ROPE and attach to loop or Shackle.
Using MAXTRAX 4WD RECOVERY TRACKS to provide a ramp will greatly reduce the forces and loads on all equipmentu00a0during the recovery.
Clear the area of bystanders and spectators.
Commence the recovery by GENTLY taking up the slack in the system.
If the recovery is initially unsuccessful, try again with SLIGHTLY more momentum.u00a0

CARE & MAINTENANCE
The various components of the MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM are of high quality, but due to the very nature of their potential use, or misuse, they are susceptible to severe wear and tear, and to damage such as nicks, cuts, tears, fraying, burns and abrasion. Always carefully inspect MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM components before each use for wear and tear, cuts, nicks, abraded, burned, melted, and frayed areas. DO NOT USE the product if it is damaged, cut, frayed, burned, melted, abraded, or partially unwound OR does not have a clearly legible warning label fitted. To help prolong the life of your MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM components, they should be washed off, rinsed with clean fresh water and air dried at the earliest opportunity after use. To protect from external environmental weather factors, components should be stored inside the MAXTRAX RECOVERY KIT BAG. Replacement protective sheaths are available from our website.u00a0
It is recommended that the minimum breaking strength of the strap should be between 2 and 3 times the gross vehicle mass (GVM) of any vehicle it is used with. It is advised that the strap must be suited to the gross vehicle mass (GVM) of the lighter of the 2 vehicles used in the recovery process.
Use only MAXTRAX Recovery products in the MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM. YOU MUST always USE a MAXTRAX FUSE SHACKLE in the MAXTRAX RECOVERY SYSTEM in each vehicle recovery.
