Protective wear sleeves for tie down straps are one of the best investments you can make for extending the life of your strap. These lightweight yet rugged strap protectors are also known as Cordura Wear pads due to the common use of CORDURA® fabric in many of the sleeves.
Today, most of these popular protective sleeves for tie down straps are made of a generic ballistic nylon fabric, but still offers the same superior abrasion- and cut-resistance. It’s important to note that a protective wear sleeve will not add any strength to the strap or increase its working load limit or break strength.
A protective wear pad can be used with all sizes and types of webbing, and the simple tube design fits snug enough to stay in place, yet can still be moved to the area on the strap where you need it. Because it’s movable, you can place it so it’s also in contact with the cargo, reducing sliding strap marks on the load.
Cordura wear sleeves are also customizable since they can be ordered by the foot. Widths available include:
- Protective Wear Sleeves for 1" Webbing
- Protective Wear Sleeves for 2" Webbing
- Protective Wear Sleeves for 3" Webbing
- Protective Wear Sleeves for 4" Webbing
Because the nylon fabric is designed to fit snug against the webbing, they can sometimes be challenging to slide on. To install, fold the webbing in half, push through the sleeve, then unfold and pull to straighten.
