What Not To Do
Never attach a tow strap to your bumper!

Never attach a tow strap to anything that's not a solid steel hook mounted firmly on your car. In the old days, the bumper might have been able to take the pressure, but modern cars and trucks have bumper made out of plastic a thin tin. Attach a tow cable or strap to them and you'll just destroy the bumper or pull it off altogether!
