Black Snake Light Duty Kevlar® Y Strops

The Y Strop uses Kevlar® to achieve a unique and lightweight alternative to 2 leg chain or wire rope sling configurations. It is an excellent towing fixture due to its ease of use and safe handling. The light duty Y Strops are an ideal permanent addition for small to medium skid-mounted power generators, transformers, de-watering pumps, tool and equipment boxes.

The Y strop is also suitable for light vehicle towing and recovery with twin point connections, common to farm, military and small to medium mine vehicles.
The Kevlar® core and thick rubber cover make the Y strop perfect for snow, sand and muddy conditions. The Kevlar® Y Strop is UV stabilised, waterproof and can be used underwater as a tie-down or mooring strop.
