Product Description

Gator Jaw Soft Shackle

Recovery situations are high risk and in the event of a failure or accident can result in significant injury or even death. One of the highest risk items in a recovery is often the shackle. When a steel shackle is on the end of a snatch strap it becomes as dangerous as a loaded gun. TJM 4×4 Megastore are proud stockists of Bubba Rope Gator Jaw Synthetic Shackles. The Gator Jaw shackle is made from plasma rope and as such does not pose the same threat as a steel shackle.

Gator-Jaw synthetic shackles are made from Plasma® rope which is the highest strength synthetic rope available. These superior tow rope connectors are stronger than comparable steel shackles. Gator-Jaw® shackles won’t rust and are so light they float. Towing applications include: 4×4 off-road, agriculture & mining equipment and various marine uses.

Advantages Over Steel Shackles:
Stronger than steel – 32,000 lb. breaking strength!
It floats – no more losing shackles in the water or muck!
Flexible – easily wraps around the most difficult pulling points!
One piece construction – no pins to fasten!

Recovery Boards

When travelling on sand or mud traction can be an issue. A simple and efficient way to self recover in these environments is to use a set of recovery boards. They simply slide down in front of the wheel and allow the vehicle to climb up onto the boards. At TJM 4×4 Megastores we stock the two leading brands of Recovery Boards – Tred and Maxtrax.

Tred 4×4

TRED is the ultimate all-in-one off road recovery device, specially designed to get your four-wheel drive, ATV and equipment out of trouble when traction is lost in sand, mud, sludge, or slime.

Engineered and manufactured in Australia from only the highest quality materials, TREDs are designed to handle intense levels of torque, flex, weight and impact. Intense reviews of every fine detail in the design process make TRED the best choice for your recovery. With a designated shovel feature, extreme hex grip nodules, aggressive ramp entry teeth and ultimate wear resistant properties, TRED will allow you to explore with confidence, without letting traction disrupt your journey.

TRED is available in two sizes to ensure storage and accessibility is never an issue. Driving as a single vehicle/operator with TRED ensures you can get unstuck even on solo adventures. TRED are an essential piece of equipment for your off road recovery kit. From full scale recovery for the serious off road tourer to recreational family trips, or even commercial applications including mining and industrial, TRED is being tested with impressive results across all usage types.

TRED can eliminate the hazardous practices of other vehicle recovery options involving highly stressed components such as steel cables, shackles, snatch straps and winches, keeping you, your family and your vehicle safe.

A set of TREDs on board can save you all important time and money and also eliminate safety risks.
