I agree, 2T is too light for any component int snatching. The lightest I like using is a 3.2T bow shackle which as MAS mentioned has a high safety factor. I use a 5T equaliser strap, but as it is often used near things like bumpers where the strain can be localised, using a 8T would not be overkill.

It's really only the snatch strap itself, where stretch is reduced as you go bigger, that 5T would be the maximum

@NachaLuva

Would this do for an equaliser strap? Only $20 plus some shackles

It's 4.5T breaking strain with 2.2T SWL, about the same as my snatch strap & winch extension strap so it should be ok.

When using it, thread the equaliser strap through the snatch strap loop, never use a shackle to join straps. Make sure your bow shackles are good quality rated with the rating stamped on the side.

Vert, I was wrong about your strap, I was thinking it was 2T breaking strain, 2T SWL is fine
