Northern Strands Is Having a Sale On Tow Kits! Tow Strap, Winch Line or Tow Rope Kits Available

We at Northern Strands thought this would be a great time to have a sale on Tow Kits with the huge snowfall Saskatchewan had this week. We wanted to give everyone a deal on recovery straps, winch lines, and tow ropes when they need them the most. Saskatoon was hit particularly hard and many people were stuck and continue to get stuck on residential streets. And you know this won't be the last snow dump we get this winter! 

All of our Tow Kits come with Soft Shackles. Soft Shackles are an excellent lightweight replacement for steel shackles. Many new trucks have tow lugs on the front that you cannot hook to without wrecking your bumper. This type of shackle can also be easily wrapped around difficult pulling points and not scratch vehicle paint. The Soft Shackle is complete with a locking system for ease of use and a slip ring for extra security. Made with high-strength durable. Dyneema Synthetic Rope, the Soft Shackle is constructed with one piece of material. This means that there are no pins that need to be fastened.

Spring Sale! Recovery Straps 45% to 55% Off at Northern Strands!

Spring is here and with spring comes the mud! Don't be caught on a muddy road or in a field with no tow strap, or with one that should have been replaced long ago. A recovery strap that has degraded or has defects can have a greatly reduced working load limit. Which means it will break unexpectedly before you can pull your tractor, equipment, or vehicle out.

Now is the time to replace the old with the new. Contact us today to save 45% to 55% on your next recovery strap!

Northern Strands' 10 Steps for Safely Pulling Equipment with a Recovery Strap or Tow Rope

At Northern Strands, we take safety seriously. It is important to learn how to properly use a Tow Strap or Tow Rope to help move a piece of heavy equipment, combine, truck, or any other type of vehicle that is stuck. 

Follow these 10 Steps for Safely Moving a Vehicle with a Recovery Strap or Tow Rope:

1. Recovery straps should be at least 6 m or 20 ft in length, with loops (not hooks), and in good working condition (no cuts        or broken stitches). 

2. Check both vehicle weights and add the weights of any loads either vehicle is carrying.

  • The vehicle doing the pulling must be equal to, or ideally, greater weight than the vehicle that is being pulled.

3. Ensure the tow strap has a Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) that is 2-3 times the total weight of the stuck vehicle. 

  • If it is less, the strap may snap under high tension.
  • If it is more, the strap will not function properly.
4. Ensure tow hooks, hitch receivers, and any shackles used are rated to the loads that exceed the recovery strap MBS.
  • In the event of excessive loads, the recovery strap should always be the weakest link and snap first. 
5. Move away as much mud, sand, or snow from under the vehicle and in front of the tires in the direction of the pull.
6. Position the pulling vehicle in line with the stuck vehicle - the pulling vehicle facing forward and the stuck vehicle being pulled from the front or the back.
  • Ensure that you are within 10 degrees of a straight line - side loading can lead to serious vehicle damage.
7. Lay out the recovery strap between the two vehicles and loop the strap onto a hook bolted to the vehicle frame or put the loop on a shackle that is properly pinned to a frame mounted hitch rated for recovery. 
  • If using a threaded shackle, hand tighten the pin and then turn it back one quarter turn for ease of release later.
  • Never tie the strap onto the vehicle. Slip the strap over a ball hitch, or attach it to anything other than a tow hook or frame mounted hitch. 
  • Only use one strap, never two in parallel. However, there are a few options for creating additional length with two straps if needed:

8. Drape a heavy coat or blanket over the middle of the strap to dampen any backlash if it snaps or releases. 
9. Ensure all bystanders are at least 2 times the length of the tow strap to the side of the vehicles.
10. The pulling vehicle accelerates slowly (to about 10-12 KPH) to build tension in the strap and provide a sustained pull. 
    Once the slack is taken up, the stuck vehicle likewise applies acceleration in low gear to assist the pulling car. 
    Neither vehicle should spin their tires.
  • Steady momentum is most effective.
  • Maintain tension throughout the pull, do not allow slack to develop in the strap at any point.
