The Deadman Stretchy Band kinetic recovery rope is an essential tool in your recovery arsenal for vehicle-to-vehicle recovery. Unlike a tow strap or the Deadman which uses static fibers (non-stretch), the Stretchy Band is designed with fibers that stretch up to 30% under load, absorbing shock loads and acting like a rubber band to give a little extra yank to the stuck vehicle. This is great for vehicle-to-vehicle recoveries where one vehicle is stuck, but this stretchy property makes it a bad choice for towing (we advise you do not).
When deciding which Stretchy Band is best for you, try to match or exceed your vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). This will ensure you're using a Stretchy Band strong enough to handle your vehicle when its in a tight spot. However, if you regularly play with friends a little bigger than you, consider sizing up so you can safely yank them free as well!
Manufactured and tested at an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility in Houston, Texas. U.S. sourced Cortland Double Braided nylon. The Deadman Stretchy Band stretches up to 30% during use for a seamless and safe recovery.
