We don’t care what great-grandad told you about looping a tow strap over your 2-inch ball for towing situations. It’s incredibly unsafe, and people have literally died trying to do that. When you pull on a tow strap, it stretches – considerably more than you would ever think. This is intentional & by design, but when you are hooked onto an open hook like this you are begging for trouble. By using Vault Cargo Management’s shackle hitch receiver you now have a closed system. This ensures that the tow strap can’t slip off and go anywhere, protecting both yourself & the people around you.

Nylon Recovery Straps are great for situations where you may need to get a running start and traction all around is not so great. If you are in a situation where both you and the stuck driver are in sand, mud, snow or ice, you will need a running start to gain momentum. Once you have enough momentum and that point hits where the nylon recovery strap stretches out, the momentum should be enough to pop another vehicle out, all without a big JOLT of pull on both vehicles. The downside of nylon recovery straps is if used incorrectly and the nylon snaps, that stretch has to go somewhere. If a nylon strap stretches to hard and too fast, it will backlash at a vehicle or even worse a person’s face. Just make sure to keep vehicles and people clear of the recovery area when pulling someone out.

Not everybody needs to be able to tow this amount of weight. For these people, you might instead opt to get a receiver hitch or ball mount hitch since they will normally clock in around 5,000 or fewer pounds in towing weight capacity. If you don’t envision ever needing a hitch which can handle weights which are more than usual, you should simply get a ball mount of the receiver hitch.
I’ve had this 20 ft strap combo for about 10 months now just in case I ever needed it. I was waiting till I actually used it to give it a review. I used it today to pull my brothers lifted f250 with it. The shackle was real heavy duty and easy to take the hitch off and put the shackle in. It gives you that peace of mind that it won’t come off the ball hitch. The Strap is built tough and durable. I do like the double loop ends on the strap because I feel like that’s sturdier than the metal hooks straps. It was actually my first time pulling a vehicle with my truck and the 20 ft strap was actually plenty long for the speeds we went. We had our phones on and constantly communicating so we could be on the same page when breaking. I traveled 3 miles pulling a heavy f250 at no more than about 35-40 mph. The 20 ft strap was plenty room for braking at that speed and enough to give u peace of mind of not feeling like the vehicle your pulling is gonna slam into you. I like the bag to keep everything in. Mine fits perfect underneath the back seats of my ram. Great buy. Pulling my brothers truck one time paid for itself in not having to get a tow truck.
