MIN. BREAK STRENGTH
The Rhino USA Ultimate Recovery Tow Strap features one of the highest break strengths in the industry. The exact break strength depends on the thickness:
2" Tow Strap: 20,000lbs
3" Tow Strap: 30,000lbs
4" Tow Strap: 40,000lbs
Every other tow strap on the market (that we’re aware of, anyway) uses 100% nylon. Our tow straps use a unique blend of poly-silk, which is advantageous because it allows the tow strap to stretch by about 8%. This improves durability, strength, and allows for a smoother recovery.
Please note, however, that tow straps are NOT to be used in the same way as kinetic ropes. Tow straps are meant to be used for static recoveries (no running start) and not dynamic recoveries (requires a running start to build up kinetic energy). The stretch is more of an insurance policy, not a main feature. Check out our kinetic ropes if you’re interested in a dynamic recovery that requires a running start.
We painstakingly took the time during the engineering of this product to improve upon an ordinary tow strap in every way. For starters, the stitching is of the highest quality possible. Secondly, there are no metal hooks. This is important because sometimes metal hooks can snap during a recovery and become deadly projectiles. We’ve also sewn extra padding into the eyelets to give the strap extra protection and toughness where it’s needed most. We’ve improved upon a traditional tow strap in every conceivable way and created something tough enough to last a lifetime.
Most of our products come with a convenient drawstring storage bag. Perfect for organizing all your off-roading and tie-down accessories so they’re at the ready when you need them most. Holds up to 10 lbs!
This recovery tow strap and a kinetic energy recovery rope perform the same function – recover a stuck vehicle from a ditch, mud, snow, etc. In the simplest terms possible, kinetic energy recovery ropes perform this job better than a tow strap, and are also safer. However, a kinetic energy recovery rope costs anywhere 2-3 times as much as a tow strap. For someone on a budget who plans on recovering light vehicles (ATVs, etc.) this recovery tow strap will do the job just fine. For the truly dedicated off-roading adventurer that’s willing to spend a little more, we recommend one of our kinetic energy recovery ropes instead.
We use a unique poly-silk webbing that is unlike anything else on the market. Typical value brand tow straps are made from 100% nylon, which is weaker and less durable.
No, the break strength depends on the thickness of the strap. The 2” strap has a break strength of 20,000 lbs. The 3” strap has a break strength of 30,000 lbs. The 4” strap has a break strength of 40,000 lbs.
A tow strap. This is NOT meant to be for snatch recoveries that require a running start. We offer kinetic energy recovery ropes as well, and if you’re willing to spend a bit more, these would be the better option.
Yes, about 8%. However, this is NOT meant to be used like a kinetic energy rope with a snatch recovery.
