Scary...It is amazind how much energy one of those straps can have in it. Back in my alcohol abusing days(high School) we went out on a sign gathering excursion and the rocket scientist I was with was wrapping a snatch strap around the sign poles and driving away. When those signe let loose they went flying. Mostly against the tailgate of his truck, again, he was quite the rocket scientist. Oddly enough we got busted for this little incident.
