Do not hook this to your tail tie down. Tail tie downs are meant to pull down not backwards. Pulling backwards puts the tie in shear rather than tension causing damage to the structure that supports the tie. Especially on Cessna where the tie is simply bolted through the skin and aft stringers. Hangar neighbor just spent a thousand dollars having the sheet metal repaired from using this device to pull his 182 up a small incline at the hangar door. If you use this device, make a cradle out of rope and lanyard it to something more substantial than your took tie down.
