Default 3"x30', 4"x30' & 6"x30', 6"x50' straps - tree savers too

Brand new... American made. These are not your cheap Chinese straps.

$40 for the 3"x30'. Blue.

$50 for the 4"x30'. Blue.

$100 for the 6"x30'. Yellow.

$200 for the 6"x50'. Yellow. Shipping will be updated for these once I have the first in my hands.

$28 for the tree saver with cordura sleeve. Yellow and black.

I can combine shipping to save on multiple strap orders in some cases. 3", 4" and tree savers can ship by USPS flat rate boxes of $10.70 each. 6" straps are dependent upon zip code and weight.

The straps I have made are 7500lbs per inch wide. So, that is 22,500lbs for the 3" and 45,000lbs for the 6", etc.

Tree savers have a breaking strength of 67,200lbs.

Just a note that there are a lot more to straps than just breaking strength. And like everything advertised... there is no regulation on this. I would put my straps up against a twice as wide Chinese strap.

As you can see my straps have cordura added to the loops to make them last longer.

As a general rule of thumb, a strap should be purchased that is rated at roughly 3 times the weight of your vehicle. If in question, go larger.

These are the kinetic straps... the yank kind... the kind that stretch. The industry does not have a standard on naming. One companies recovery straps are another companies tow straps, etc. Just for positive clarification... this are intended for yanking a stuck vehicle out.

These are what you want for getting a stuck vehicle out of the mud or snow.

People call them different things. They stretch.

Tow straps aren't designed to stretch, although they will a little.

Recovery straps are designed to stretch.

I think that's what the original poster was asking. If yours stretch then they are recovery straps.

That is not necessarily true. It depends on the manufacturer of the strap. Trust me on this one. I went around and around with both local and over seas suppliers about this.

These do have some stretch to them... these are for yanking one truck out of a stuck situation with another truck.
