Showing You The Ropes: Recovery Strap VS Tow Strap

Showing You The Ropes: Recovery Strap VS Tow Strap

While the terms recovery strap and tow strap are often used interchangeably, a tow strap and a recovery strap can be very different and are usually used for different purposes.

Recovery strap

-Made of nylon
-Used for “recovering” a vehicle that’s immobilized.
-Sometimes also called snatch straps for the ability to “snatch” a vehicle from a stuck position.
-Can also be used for towing

Tow strap

-Generally made of polyester
-Used for towing a “free-wheeling” vehicle behind another.
-Usually has a hook on each end.
-Should not be used for recovering a vehicle because of the lack of strength increases the chances that the strap could snap.

Our recovery / tow straps are designed to be used for both recovery and towing. The poly/silk fabrication is much stronger so it’s ideal for recovery uses and the loops or “eyes” offer more flexibility than traditional straps that have hooks already attached.
