Re: Tow strap size?

2" will work 3" is better. no hooks. (I think most of the 2" are 20,000lbs and the 3" are 30,000lbs)
I have both, sometimes it is nice to be able to make one looong one. (We may need them this weekend.)

Re: Tow strap size?

I prefer the 2" Snatch Strap. Basically it's a huge rubber band so it absorbs shock. I also have a 6" wide one 25' long, but it's so stiff it acts like a chain. 3" would be nice, but get one that stretches. I put a few together to make the long one needed in some cases.

Re: Tow strap size?

G.L. is right -- NO HOOKS. The El Cheapo chrome ones they put on tow straps are Very Dangerous. They are very brittle & can snap at the Worst time, becoming a projectile..... Use a screw- or pin-shackle to connect them instead.
