We get a lot of questions about which strap to use when towing a vehicle or the best strap to recover a vehicle from mud or a ditch. While the terms tow strap and recovery strap are often used interchangeably, they can be very different. Tow straps are made of polyester with little to no stretch, and should not be used in the recovery of stuck vehicles simply because they can more easily break under pressure. It is important to note that this Fieryred strap is made of 100% nylon 66 with maximum breaking strength of 46,500 lbs and 22% elasticity, which makes it suitable for both towing and recovery uses.
Like this Fieryred strap, genuine recovery straps are made of nylon that stretches when necessary. They are also called snatch straps for the ability to “snatch” a stuck vehicle. For this type of usage, recovery straps are safer than tow chain since they are not nearly as heavy. And nylon recovery straps can also be used for towing applications.
Carefree on & off Road: Made of 100% nylon 66, this tow strap features maximum breaking strength of 46,500 lbs & 22% elasticity which make the tow strap less likely to snap in recovery. Your biggest concern when off-roading must be getting your vehicle stuck. Luckily, your fun doesn’t need to be spoiled if you have a recovery strap. Thus the nylon tow strap is suitable for both recovery and towing uses.
Stain & Abrasion Resistant: This 4’’ tow strap is fabricated to stand up to dirt, sharp edges, abrasion, acid, alkali and frost. And the tow strap is stronger yet lighter than tow chain. Red color of the tow strap is highly visible, recognizable and appealing. If you work on or near the road where cars are whipping by, a bright red recovery strap will make both the recovery strap and yourself much more noticeable.
Ready for Attachment: The 4’’ nylon tow strap features two looped ends for easy attachment to tow hooks and tow eyes. And the loop on each end of the tow strap is polyester reinforced for maximum abrasion resistance and prolonged life of the snatch strap with hooks. In case you encounter a trap too mighty for your rig, an easy-to-use and high-quality nylon recovery strap will be a simple and dependable solution.
Wear Points Protection: If you are an overlanding enthusiast, a recovery strap is a must-have but finding a recovery strap that will not fray, tear, or wear down quickly is not easy. This Fieryred 4’’ tow strap comes with 2 movable sleeves, which are made of durable polyester and SBR, to protect the tow strap where the tow strap comes in contact with other objects.
Resistant to Elements: The shackles are made of forged iron with powder coating for protection from the elements, such as sun, temperature, humidity, rain and snow. Equipped with the Velcro tape and the storage bag, the recovery strap and the shackles can be neatly stowed when not in use. And a 2-year warranty serves as quality assurance of both the tow strap and the shackles.
