There are some gifts that come with very practical uses and for the guy who owns a truck or even just a regular car, the very basic but beautifully useful gift of a high quality tow rope can actually make a very clever gift idea to give someone who has most everything and you can’t think of what to get them! So what is the idea of a tow rope?

Well, the best tow ropes these days come from the nylon strap variety for several pretty sound reasons. First up is the high tensile strength of nylon for towing heavy loads. These straps will not break even under great strain when towing a heavy car or truck out of a ditch or out of deep mud, sand or even snow. They will perform the task and give the best service.

The other side is their portability and small stowing size. Nylon tow straps are flat wound on a coil, so they take up very little space, even the long ones. They uncoil easy and can be used in conjunction with grabbers and tensioners to make using the easy and for taking up any slack very fast.

They can easily be hooked up to another vehicle or whatever it is you need to tow and then you just gun the gas and your on your way! After the job is done, the tow strap winds back up into its coil nice and neat and is stowed away in its place with little fuss or bother. It makes life easy and does its job without making any extra work. What more can you ask of a practical item as that?

Sure, this is not going to win any awards for the most glamorous gift idea. But hey, when a guy has most of what he wants, then give him what he needs!
