Recovery without a winch (Flip/Flop Winch)

Hope this hasn't been posted before, but if so, I guess I'll just get to see all the pretty little red letters.

Found this while surfing on Bushcraft USA and thought it could be useful info to pass along.

Here is a link to the thread.

Here is a link to the video:

YouTube - ‪Kochanski Flip-Flop Winch‬‏

Here is another video I found. Not the best, but you get the idea. I imagine it would work pretty well with a couple hi lift handles.

Here is another variation. Obviously be careful with either as it could be dangerous once pressure is on the line and I take no responsibility if you hurt yourself

I've read about that somewhere before. Very cool.

One thing though. If I had 2 hi-lift handles I would use one of the hi-lift jacks with it rather than the flip-flop technique.

I support the military, fiscal responsibility, Hemp, legalization of Marijuana over 21, smaller government and the Bill of Rights.

NSA: The only part of the government that actually listens.
