How to Choose the Correct Size Kinetic Recovery Rope – Tactical Recovery Equipment

TRE Kinetic Recovery Rope

Choosing the correct size Kinetic Recovery Rope all depends on the vehicles weight. Kinetic Recovery Ropes, sometimes called snatch straps are the perfect recovery tool to use when pulling a vehicle out of deep mud, sand, snow or silt. Kinetic Energy Recovery Ropes have the ability to elongate under load by 30%, much like a rubber band, which allows it to use it’s own kinetic energy to help dislodge a stuck vehicle. Kinetic Recovery Ropes are safer than chains, cables and standard tow straps and and are also stronger. There are a variety of diameters and lengths depending on the weight of the vehicle that is being recovered. Kinetic Recovery Ropes from Tactical Recovery Equipment are made from Heavy Duty double braided Nylon that is coated in a Urethane Polymer coating that helps protect the rope against abrasion, water and UV rays.  Each kinetic rope comes with heavy duty eye loops at each end allowing multiple ways to make connections no matter what type of vehicle you are trying to recover.

How to Choose the Correct Size Kinetic Recovery Rope:

Choosing the correct size Kinetic Recovery Rope makes a big impact on your recovery. The strength of kinetic ropes are determined by the diameter of the rope. There are many different diameters to choose from 1/2″ all the way up to 1 1/2″. When choosing the size of your Kinetic Recovery Rope, the breaking strength should be approximately 3 times the weight of the vehicle you are pulling. For example if the Jeep or truck you are recovering weighs 4,000 lbs., you would multiply that by 3.0 (4,000 lbs x 3.0 = 12,000 lbs.) which means you would need a rope with a minimum breaking strength of 12,000 lbs., which would be our 3/4″ Kinetic Rope that is rated at 18,000 lbs. Since most of the time you are choosing recovery gear to help recovery your own vehicle is is best to choose a diameter or strength that corresponds with the weight of your vehicle.

Features of our Kinetic Recovery Ropes: 

  • Made from Heavy Duty double braided Nylon.
  • Urethane Polymer Coating to protect against abrasion, water and UV.
  • Heavy Duty eye loops on each end to make connections easy.
  • Available in many diameters and strengths.
  • Ultimate transfer of the pulling vehicle’s kinetic energy by elongating up to 30%
  • Absorbs jounce upon take off unlike cables, chains, or standard tow straps

Tactical Recovery Equipment attended the 36th annual Hump n Bump at the Logandale Fairgrounds this past weekend. This year was the 4th year that Tactical Recovery Equipment has helped sponsor Hump n Bump as a Gold Level Sponsor. TRE raffled off Two 85 ft. Winch Ropes with Safety Thimble II, Two Safety Thimble Fairleads, one 3/4 inch Kinetic Recovery Rope, as well as four Soft Shackles. Unfortunately there was one roll over this year during the Bronco Falls run, thankfully the driver walked away with no injuries! We also had a nice visit from Blackops with his 2017 Sema build of his LS7 1984 CJ7 On 49” Tires. It was another successful year at Hump n Bump selling real world safe recovery gear. If you have not yet been to this event, we suggest you check it out and register next year!
