Recovery strap

Recommended Posts

So last weekend the wife and i went on a dusk ride from camp to north pole. We arrived there shut off buggy and let our daughter out to play a little, got back in car went to fire up and nothing, dead battery. By some miracle there was a group of buggies there also and thankfully offered to pull start me.

Anyhow my interest is in the recovery strap he had , it was one you loop around chassis and keep braiding it back through it self 5-6 times. Kind of chineese finger trap design. Id never seen it and id like to hunt one down, but cant find them. Ive searched recovery strap, tow line, no luck. It was really nimble with no hardware to scratch your car.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated. Also if the guy who helped me reads this, again thank you, you saved me from walking all the way back to camp by vendors and leaving my wife and daughter with the car in the dark and wind!!

Best damn strap on the market.

I heard they (Beard/ Redart) were bought out. They're called Speed Straps now.

They have 1" and 2". 1" is plenty for buggies, but for trucks and mohos, get a 2".

Here's the 2" strap in action. This video of me pulling out my buddy 9digit shows how much you can stretch these things. They work awesome.

On a side note, I have dozens of used 20 and 30' straps. next roundup if anyone wants one let me know. They are not NEARLY as compact as the above mentioned but they will pull a DP and stacker out no problem :beerpint:

Same strap I used to pull the buggy off comp sat night. If anyone saw I had to "jerk" it out pretty hard as it was just an anchor with 2 of the 4 wheels missing.
