ARB 17.5k Snatch Strap

This ability to stretch is a distinction between a snatch strap and a tow strap, ARB snatch straps are elastic when under load whereas a tow strap is not, the benefits of which are twofold. Firstly, the kinetic energy generated by the elasticity actually aids the recovery itself, and secondly, the elasticity greatly reduces the likelihood of vehicle damage during recovery. The enormous weight of each 4x4 and the weighted force of whatever caused the immobilization puts enormous strain on the point where the straps are attached, and without some elasticity, there is a substantial risk of damaging the vehicle. For vehicle recovery, a snatch strap is more suitable than a tow strap.

ARB 17.5k Snatch Strap

works just like it was made to. I pulled a friend out of a hole where he just couldn't get over the lip. I could actually see the strap stretch and then just popped him right out. Just watch you don't over stress your hook up spotts. I twisted my other frineds bumper.

Awesome product the stretch really makes a difference, you can actually watch the strap strech out then all of a sudden boom your buddy is no longer stuck.

Very good product. A tad expensive but backed by a good name so you get what you pay for. It has pulled me out every time it was needed, but it does soak-up water and mud rather quickly. However, it cleaned very well and dried within a couple hours so it could be put back into my recovery bag without soaking the other gear. I would definitely recommend this product!

ARB Snatch Strap. A well built product. I hopefully will never need it but it is there just in case. It is heavy, but strong. Load ratings are not printed on the strap, and there are different options for load ratings (I believe 3).
