Freedom Recovery Strap is specifically designed to stretch under load for maximum performance, an FRG Recovery Strap is a very effective method of extracting a vehicle mired in mud, snow, or sand, this is a quick and efficient recovery method when a second vehicle is present.
We’ve chosen a 3” width in high visibility Orange with a double reflective conspicuity thread for nigh visibility at night.
Freedom Recovery Strap in a 3” x 30’ length will stretch approximately 3’ under full load.
This strap size is appropriate for a vehicles 6-8,000 lbs like a 4 Door Jeep or Toyota Tacoma, and even up to ½ ton truck. We recommend about a 3:1 safety factor when sizing you recovery Strap.
