Treading lightly and protecting our natural resources when out on the trail is imperative to ensure that future generations continue to have access to public land that is open for recreational off-roading. AEV’s Tree Strap allows a winch cable to be safely anchored to tree’s trunk when recovering a stuck vehicle, without causing any permanent damage. Without using a Tree Strap, the steel cable or synthetic winch rope will heavily gouge a tree’s bark under the extreme forces that winching can generate—damage that can ultimately kill the tree. Using a Tree Strap displaces all that energy and preserves the tree.
The AEV Tree Strap is made of 3-inch wide polyester webbing with reinforced eyelets and safety rated to a Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) of 24,000 lbs. with a Working Load Limit (WLL) of 6,000 lbs. AEV is dedicated to bringing more safety and continuity to the recovery gear that 4WD enthusiasts around the world rely on to get out of these potentially hazardous or life threatening situations and this is the only Tree Strap in the aftermarket that complies with industrial rigging standards. To further maximize the service life of this Tree Strap, a unique edge guard was added for improved protection against cuts and abrasion.
Please Note: Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) is the minimum force necessary to cause a recovery device to break or fail. Working Load Limit (WLL) is the recommended maximum force a recovery device is intended to safely support, when the force is applied in-line and through the centerline of the device. The WLL is calculated by dividing the Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) by a safety factor that is generally around 4-to-1. For example, the AEV Snatch Block has an MBS of 52,000 LBS, so when divided by a safety factory of 4-to-1, the WLL becomes 13,000 LBS.
