- The rattler is a tool that uses very strong stretch cord bundled in a corrugated vinyl tube.
- It has a hook on one end that attaches to the ski of the stuck sled and a handle on the other end.
- It maximizes the pulling forces your body can produce when pulling out a stuck snowmobile.
Step 1. An Assistant places Rattler's S-hook on the ski loop of the stuck snowmobile. Then, facing the stuck snowmobile they place both hands on the D-handle and back off to the side of the sled.
Step 2. Next, with arms outstretched and feet together, the assistant lays backward in the snow. Using their body weight, leg strength, and backward momentum they easily apply and hold pulling force.
Step 3. While the assistant continues to pull, the driver of the stuck sled throttles their machine. As the sled moves forward, the assistant brings their arms to their chest and continues to pull on the Rattler. Once the snowmobile is free it will move forward and to the side of the assistant. Using this method they can apply a consistent pulling force over approximately a 4 foot distance.
- When "Picker" gets stuck, you pull out the Rattler, pic #1.
- Hook up the Rattler as shown in pic #2.
- Lean back and put as much pressure on the rattler as you can, pic #3.
- Hop off the sled, gun the gas, and out you come, pic #4.
- Note: This method saves putting undo stress on your back by trying to pull the sled out without assistance of the Snobunje Rattlers help!
- Note: We carry both the Rattler & the Cobra from Snobunje when we go sledding, as shown in Dave's pic above.
- Hook up the Cobra, as shown in pic #1.
- Hook up the Rattler, as shown in pic #2, and put pressure on both the Cobra & the Rattler.
- Hit the gas on your sled as shown in pic #3, keeping pressure on the Cobra & the Rattler.
- Pic #4 shows how easy you come out using this method.
