Smartstrap Retractable Tow Rope

smartstrap1.jpg

This “Smartstrap” is a 3,333-pound towing rope that stows safely away inside the retracting plastic case. That’s good, since so many tow ropes get left in a lump at the bottom of a trunk or left to the elements in the bed of a pick-up.

It’s 14-feet long and extends symmetrically up until the full length. (I’m fairly certain you must manually wind it back up when you’re done.) It can be found for around $25.

    I saw these at Target yesterday, they don’t appear to latch when extended and act kind of like a double-sided nylon tape measure, without the lock button of course. I wasn’t so impressed.
