Wheel lift is key when towing! Make sure you have a secure tow strap to keep the wheel in place on your carrier or wrecker. There are several types available, however, when shopping for towing straps it is important to consider whether or not a particular strap is right for you. Look into the details about the weight limit on each tow strap to ensure you are not selecting one with a weight limit that is too low. It is just as important to have a few different types of tow straps on hand to be prepared for any situation.
A snap hook may be added to one end of the strap to ensure security and stability. Typically a strap with a snap hook will be used on Dynamics, Jerr-Dans and other light-duty carriers or wreckers. Besides the snap hook system, many carriers or wreckers can utilize an 8-point tie down system. This system allows for a vehicle to be tied down securely without the chance of any metal to metal contact to occur.
