All Mean Mother snatch straps are tested to meet the highest quality and strength standards. They are manufactured from 100% treated nylon webbing with reinforced eyelets to prolong operational life. Similar to a rubber band, a snatch strap being stretched between two vehicles generates a kinetic energy pulling force as the strap returns to its original length. The combination of the recovery vehicle pull and the pulling force from the strap creates a “snatching” effect that can heave a stranded vehicle free from being bogged or unable to move under its own power.
* High tenacity nylon webbing.
* Reinforced eyelets.
* Thermo fixed and treated for longer wear.
* High elongation of 20%.
Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS)
It is recommended that the minimum breaking strength of the strap/rope should be between 2 and 3 times the vehicle’s gross vehicle mass (GVM) *GVM means the maximum loaded mass (including the vehicle’s chassis, body, engine, engine fluids, fuel, accessories, driver, passengers and cargo) of a vehicle as specified by the vehicle manufacturer on a plate affixed to the vehicle or assessed by the road authorities in the absence of a plate.
When using a snatch strap carefully follow the safety guidelines set out in the instruction sheet included with each kit.
