It is the responsibility of the user to judge the safety of use conditions and take appropriate precautions.
The RopeTie was tested to determine safe loading and a RopeTie that was not damaged or overloaded will not fail
if used properly within the specified load limits. However, Hitchcraft LLC is not responsible for damage and/or injury by failure of any apparatus with which the RopeTie
is being used. It is the responsibility of the user to judge the safety of use conditions and take appropriate precautions.
When considering the possibility of failure the user needs to allow for dynamic loading.
In a dynamic situation when the load is subjected to acceleration and impact, as in a moving vehicle, loads can be magnified
by a factor of 3 or more.
The tie-down system may fail at the rope. Safe rope loading is generally 20% of the rated maximum load of a rope. User must beware that ropes deteriorate through wear and strain further reducing their load limit.
All these aspects must be taken into consideration when loads are high enough that failure would present risk of injury and/or loss.
