The mangled glove gives me an excuse to preach about two safety items important to all who work around dangerous machinery, including winches.
First , if you must wear rings, please have a groove cut into the inner surface of the ring clear across the ring. If done correctly, and if your ring gets caught on something, the ring will break, not your finger getting degloved, or broken off.
Secondly, If you must have long hair, please tuck it well up into a cap. The smae thing that happened to the glove can, and does happen to long hair. The injury is accurately described as a scalping.
