The GearAmerica Difference:

  • BE PREPARED FOR ANY OFF-ROAD EMERGENCY with the GearAmerica heavy duty recovery strap, which is specially designed to help you tow your vehicle and protect trees at the same time. As a result, you can recover your car 100% hassle-free.
  • LAB-TESTED FOR UP TO 35,053 POUNDS (15 TONS), so you can rest assured that our universal 3” x 8’ tow strap with heavy-duty with reinforced loops will help recover even the heaviest trucks, SUVs, or any other off-road vehicle without skipping a beat.
  • A HEAVY-DUTY TOWING STRAP FOR HEAVY WORK. Our strap features heavily reinforced end loops, 2 movable Neoprene sleeves for maximum protection as well as a special, military-grade webbing, which is worn, tear, and UV-resistant.
  • PROTECT THE TREE WITH OUR ALL-IN-ONE ANCHOR SET, which includes 2 adjustable protective sleeves, a convenient hook, and loop tie to keep the strap rolled plus a premium storage bag so you can save trunk space!
  • THE LAST RECOVERY GEAR YOU WILL EVER NEED! - Why settle for average when you can experience the legendary GearAmerica quality backed by our unprecedented Lifetime Hassle-Free Replacement Warranty


Our GearAmerica Tree Saver / Winch Extension Strap, also known as a Rigging Strap, Short Tow Strap or Tree Trunk Protector, is designed to rig your winch line to a solid object, such as, well you guessed it - a tree. You'll need a soft shackle or D-shackle/clevis to attach the looped ends of the strap together and attach your winch hook. These ultimate straps are specifically designed to handle the high capacity of winch pulling. 

So why do you need our 8' Strap? First, it helps protect a tree you'd be using as an anchor from damage by the winch rope. Using wire rope directly on a tree trunk will damage the tree and possibly kill it. And remember, we want to respect and preserve our trails so we can keep them open, and not killing trees is part of that. 

However, GearAmerica Tree Saver / Winch Extension Straps aren't just about tree preservation, they're about Safety. You NEVER, ever want to wrap a winch line around any anchor and hook the line back onto itself. This is a dangerous practice that can lead to rope failure, and that is obviously a very bad thing. 

Another great way you can use our Short Strap is a Y-Strap Bridle between 2 recovery hooks to balance out any shock-load to your vehicle's recovery points during a recovery operation. Just insert your GearAmerica Tree Saver / Winch Extension Strap into the loop of a GearAmerica Tow Strap and center it, then attach the Short Strap's reinforced loops to two different recovery points on the vehicle, effectively forming a Y. This technique distributes the shock to two rather than one tow point, protecting your vehicle.
