Hi all.
I have searched every where to get a picture of joining two snap straps,using a rolled up paper or magazine for safety ,not using D shackles as we all know this is very dangerous.
Iwish to place this in my 4x4 club for new members

I'm guessing you mean "Snatch" straps.
Here's what we do. Also instead of a magazine I carry a short piece of dowel with a slight taper on it.

In the heat of the moment, you may well want to join everything with rated D-shakles, but this is considered dangerous, as they too can fly towards either vehicle, when things go wrong.
A rolled up newspaper, or a magazine will probably drop away rather than become a missile.

Or if the newsagent is closed and you cannot get a magazine, you can carry one of these..... a strap joiner from Just Straps @ $4.95. Made from a stiff doubled section of strap webbing. Available from ARB and probably others.

Or if all else fails, you could try a bit of effort and use your fingers and undo it?
