Roadsafe offers a great range of Recovery straps, with each one individually designed to suit its purpose, so you can have the right strap for the right application. The Roadsafe Recovery straps are tested to certified standards, fully stamped and tagged rated, come complete with fully sewn eyes and protective sleeves.

A Recovery Strap is a heavy-duty nylon or polyester strap, used in vehicle recovery situations, that can stretch under load & spring back to its original length. The combination of the recovery vehicle pull and the tension in the strap creates a ‘snatching’ effect that can pull a vehicle free from being bogged.

When used in accordance with the following guidelines, vehicles may be recovered with minimal damage to vehicles and equipment and most importantly minimal risk of injury to people.

People intending to use recovery straps should consider completing a nationally recognized four-wheel drive training course or contact a four-wheel drive club for comprehensive advice on the proper selection and use of the strap.

Key Information & Safety Recommendations

  • Check the strap and its packaging for a stated Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS).
  • It is recommended that the Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) of the strap be between two and three times the vehicle’s gross mass (GVM) and that the strap is suited to the GVM of the lighter of the two vehicles used in the recovery process.
  • The strap must not be used for lifting or conventional towing.
  • Persons indenting to use the strap must ensure that the strap is not damaged and is in a usable condition.
  • The strap’s strength and stretch are reduced when the strap is saturated (by up to 20%).
  • An object such as a recovery damper, heavy bag, or blanket must be draped over the strap during use to reduce any unintentional rebound of the strap.
  • While the strap is being used, people outside the motor vehicles who are involved in the recovery process must:
  • Stay a safe distance from the motor vehicles, recommended as at least 1.5 times the length of the unstretched strap away from the vehicles
  • Never place themselves in the path of the vehicle performing the recovery.

WARNING — Always follow product instructions. It is important to correctly attach the motor vehicle recovery strap to a motor vehicle.

A standard tow ball or vehicle tie-down point is not designed for this purpose and may result in the strap or a vehicle component detaching from a motor vehicle and striking and seriously injuring or killing a person.

Only attach the strap to a vehicle recovery point or device that is suitably rated for use with the strap. Incorrect use has previously resulted in serious injury and death.

Selecting the right Recovery Strap

It is very important to ensure you use a trap that is correctly rated for the recovery you are undertaking. A strap with a breaking strength that is too light for the recovery might snap under load. A strap with a breaking strength that is too heavy for the recovery might not stretch properly, placing stresses on the recovery points and possibly leading to damage or injury.

The Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) of the strap should be between two and three times the Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of the lightest vehicle used in the recovery process. Please be aware that the Recovery Strap will be under greater load if the vehicle is bogged in mud, sand, or heavily loaded. If the GVM is not stated on the vehicles identification plate or registration certificate, it may be available from the owner’s handbook or vehicle manufacturer.

Roadsafe 4WD recovery straps come in a range of high visibility safety colors. Different strap types are instantly recognizable and come with warning tags that include information such as strap type, rated capacity, material type, and precautions.

Note – due to the nature of synthetic fibres, recovery straps do require ‘rest periods’ between use to cool down and return to their original length and capacity. Be aware that excessive pulls on a recovery strap over a short period of time can cause heat build-up and lead to possible failure.

General Care and Maintenance

  • Never allow your straps to rub against sharp or hot surfaces.
  • Avoid twists or kinks in the webbing.
  • Always coil your straps when not in use.
  • Clean your straps with warm water with a mild detergent, allowing them to dry thoroughly before coiling for storage. Foreign materials such as sand and grit can permanently damage strap fibres.
  • Before and after use, check the full length of the straps for nicks and cuts. If damaged, the strap should be replaced.
  • Never use the strap as a lifting device.
  • Inspect all bow shackles, before and after use, for damage. Pins that are difficult to turn suggests that the shackle has been overstressed and requires replacement.

If you have a question we’re here to help, and if we don’t know the answer we’ll tell you and then do our absolute best to find the answer for you. We’re also here to guide you to the best possible outcome for you. A lot of stores will simply try to up-sell you on the most expensive option. That’s not how we operate.

4x4 Down Under is built on honesty and integrity. For example when you make a purchase with us we only charge your account once we confirm the product is ready for dispatch.
Although we like to guarantee everything on our store is available we’re not perfect and mistakes do happen. If something turns out to not be available we’ll let you know immediately and you have the option to cancel your order or wait for more stock to arrive. Should you not want to wait the order is voided, and there’s no waiting a week to get your money back (it’s instant!).

No Sales Gimmicks 

When you shop at 4x4 Down Under you don’t have to worry about:
  • Annoying and dishonest ’Sales Timers’ that simply reset every few hours and are there to coerce you into buying.
  • Dishonest “low stock” labels, another coercive sales gimmick.
  • False “John just bought a…” alerts. Our customer alerts (bottom left) are 100% true and we're proud of them.
  • Being bombarded by trust badges and labels everywhere you look that mean nothing. 
  • We don't spam! Your information is safe with us. It will never be shared or sold, or used to fill your inbox with garbage.
