One Size Does Not Fit All

One Size Does Not Fit All, Idaho (July, 2012) – When your vehicle is stuck, having proper recovery straps is a must. Unfortunately, one size does not fit all and that’s why Mac’s Tie Downs is excited to offer a variety of recovery strap options to meet the needs of vehicles all shapes and sizes. Like all of Mac’s products, the Recovery Straps are made in America using the highest quality design, materials and workmanship. 

“Our Mac’s straps are tested and used in a variety of situations, including towing a 36,000lb concrete truck up a steep graded hill at a recent off road challenge,” said Colin McLemore, President of Mac’s Tie Downs. “Our straps have definitely been put to the test and I’m confident they can handle anything thrown at them.”

The Mac’s Recovery Straps are made of nylon so that they can stretch and store extra kinetic energy, making it easier to get a vehicle unstuck. The straps come in four standard widths of webbing including a 2-inch (17,000lb breaking strength), 3-inch (27,000lb breaking strength), 4-inch (37,000lb breaking strength) and 6-inch (57,000lb breaking strength). The straps, available in yellow, come in two different lengths, 20 feet and 30 feet, and custom lengths can be created for different applications.

To determine what width of straps is needed, multiply the weight of your vehicle by 5 and chose the strap with the strength rating closest to that number. Of course, when in doubt, contact Mac’s directly for a walk through on choosing straps.
