||Hard to describe how to tie the huricane hitch. Just study the
picture. It is a secure
system with a lot of give. When tying down a plane for high winds, the
tie-down must stretch. DO NOT TIE DOWN WITH CHAINS. Chains have no
give, no stretch, no flex, and when the wind bucks the wings up they come to a
HARD stop against the chains. Rope gives, and acts like a bit of a
shock absorber, cushioning the movement stop. Chains can rip your wings off. I stole these two photos from a detailed description of proper tie-downs at F. E. Potts' Guide to Bush Flying site.
