Natural Rubber and EPDM Tarp Ties
Rubber tarp ties (not to be confused with low-grade bungee cords) are a quick and easy way to secure items in place. Tarp ties are available in natural rubber and EPDM composite rubber.
Natural rubber tarp ties have a strong consistent stretch to the cord. EPDM straps have a strong stiff stretch to them. Natural rubber tarp straps are good for cooled, northern climates because they will not become brittle, crack or tear in freezing temperatures.
Tarp ties made with EPDM rubber are an excellent choice for hotter, southern climates and resist sun exposure from UV rays.
Metal S-hooks on each end are crimped to the cord so as to not pull out. Tarp ties should never be used as your only source of cargo securement in any application.
