Broken tow rope

I broke my tow rope last week in the wonderful Alberta April Snowstorm.

I was wondering if anyone has a line on where a fella might pick up one of those fandangled elastic type tow straps? Now that i need a new one i might as well get a good one.

TSC has them, I think even Princess Auto does too. Any auto parts store should be able to order them in if they don't have any in stock!

I think I got mine at Peaveymart. Make sure you get the kind with reinforced loops on the end and no metal shackles or hooks (just in case it snaps).

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

try google even offroad forums for names of the rope manufacturer

i havent found a tow rope yet that stretches from princess auto/crappy tire/tsc.... they stretch but only like a foot a proper snatch strap should almost double its length unless your doing a dead pull then the ones from the above stores work

OK now here is some good stuff. I might need a 2nd job to get all this stuff though.

Looks like they've got some nice stuff. Time to drain the bank account!
