Tree Saver Straps - Rigging Lines

Appropriate Tree Straps and / or Rigging Lines are essential in connecting to stationary objects such as trees or rocks. Rigging Lines may be attached to vehicles to two recovery points to spread the force to 2 points rather than one.

Tree Savers should always be used on trees to avoid damage to tree bark that can kill trees. Never wrap a winchline around a tree as this will not only damage the tree but is extremely dangerous hook winchlines back to themselves.

The Viking Tree Saver Strap are the best quality strap made. It is 100% Made in the USA and features the Max Edge which is an anti abrasion edge to protect the strap. Edges are the highest wear area of straps.

The Viking Straps also features some of the strongest stitching available with extremely tough eye guards to protect the business end of the straps. The eye size is also key to strength, these straps have some of the largest eyes of any straps which reduces the angular loading thus increasing the strength.


Viking Rigging Lines

The Viking Rigging Lines are also known as Rock Lines from where they were inspired at the rock crawling mecca: Johnson Valley California. They can also be used as Tree Savers, Winchline Extensions and general rigging lines. These lines are very unique in their construction. They are made from the same material as our winchlines: AmSteel Blue, so they are strong and unlike other tree savers have virtually no stretch. To protect the high performance winchline, we use a 7/16"-1/2" braided Polyster jacket, covered with a tight braided Nylon sleeve to keep splinters and sand from getting into the rope. While providing a high degree of protection for the winchline, these outer layers provide a cushion protecting tree bark from damaging cuts.

When choosing a Tree Saver or Rigging Line, a key safety factor is to utilize a line with minimal stretch characteristics reducing the possibility of snap back in case the line breaks.   For example: If you use a 30 foot length of rope, the line can stretch as much as 9 feet, increasing the chance of serious damage or injury if the line breaks. There is an advantage for using Recovery Rope with high stretch characteristics for dynamic towing or snatching, but never for static winching.

One of the keys to safety in winching is to minimize any stretch between hitch points.   Utilizing a low stretch synthetic Viking Winchline and Viking Tree Saver minimizes stretch between these points, thus minimizing the risk of potential damage.

Viking Tree Savers double as Winchline Extensions and are useful with attaching to vehicles where recovery points are not available. They are excellent for overturned verhicles as well.
