Kinetic Energy Recovery Rope (Kerr)
The Kinetic Energy Recovery Rope (Kerr) is made from 8 strand Nylon, and is 24mm x 8m long. This rope was found to be ideal for Land Rovers-sized vehicles. The name given to this rope was Recoverline .
Our professionally made rope is made with protected soft eyes using the eight-strand, 12 tonne rope. The multiplait design prevents kinking and hocking.
How the KERR rope works:
- The Kinetic Energy Recovery Rope literally stores energy to assist in the vehicle’s recovery.
In effect, the rope’s nylon fibres work like elastic. The more you pull it with the tow vehicle, the more it stretches, until it reaches its maximum elongation.
At this point, there is an enormous amount of energy stored within the rope and, hopefully, the stuck vehicle will be wrenched clear.
This is how it earned its early name of ‘snatch rope’.
Also recommended is a Bridle. A ‘Bridle’ is always carried and used whenever possible to reduce the shock loads on attachment points when carrying out a recovery.
Our Bridles are 2m x 24mm, professionally spliced, and supplied with two FREE three quarter inch shackles. https://goodwinch.com/product/bridle-2m-x-24mm-includes-2-large-d-shackles/
EVEN if you don’t think you’ll have any use for the KERR, no-one should venture off-road without a decent tow rope. A good, ‘keep it In the back’ polypropylene tow rope is ideal for the job. We can supply a 4.5mx24mm, three strand, eight ton rope, professionally spliced with a soft eye at each end, including a FREE three quarter inch 'D shackle. https://goodwinch.com/product/goodwinch-heavy-duty-polyprop-tow-rope/
