1-Ply Recovery Straps
1-Ply Recovery Straps, also known as one ply recovery straps, off road recovery straps, or snatch straps, are made with a single layer of high-quality industrial grade nylon material. The single ply webbing has enough pliable webbing to conform and support the load – offering the best in strength and providing enough stretch to help you get out of a tough spot. US Cargo Control is your source for a wide variety of recovery straps, and we carry straps that will make your recovery job easier. Made in the USA, our heavy-duty recovery straps are designed to be used for recovery uses.
What are Heavy-Duty Tow Straps Used for?
These vehicle recovery straps are useful for pulling vehicles out of a tight spot and are an essential tool for anyone to have in their vehicle no matter the condition. 1-Ply Recovery Straps will do the job when ATVs, RVs, pickup trucks, trailers, motorcycles, and other vehicles need to be extracted from getting stuck in muddy, icy, flooded, and sandy situations or ditches.
With CORDURA® loops (or “eyes”) on each end, this provides more resistance to cutting than nylon fabric and will work well with tow anchor shackles for a quick vehicle recovery. CORDURA® is an extremely tough, long-lasting fabric that resists wear and tear, and will increase versatility and safety.
Keep in mind that Recovery Straps are different from Tow Straps due to their fabric and ability to stretch. A Recovery Strap is designed to “recover” from the ditch, mud, etc., and can be used for towing AND recovery operations. However, take special precautions when using recovery straps when towing since the nylon webbing stretches a bit of rubber band effect, which could sling-shot the vehicle at uneven speeds.
1-Ply Vs. 2-Ply Recovery Straps
1-Ply has significant differences from 2-Ply Recovery Straps. 1-Ply has a single layer of nylon material with a break strength of 16,000 – 96,000 lbs, while the 2-Ply has two layers of nylon material with break strength of 96,000 – 128,000 lbs. The 2-Ply are used for heavier applications, so we recommend using 1-Ply for light-duty applications.
