What is a Lasso Strap?

Lasso Straps are used to secure a vehicle to a trailer, car carrier, or tow truck during transportation. It’s one of the most popular and common tie-down used for vehicle transportation.

They were designed to go over and around the tire of an automobile. The strap is passed through the O-ring like a lasso, hence the name Lasso Strap. Than looped into the ratchet and tighten down.

Lasso straps, also called wheel lift straps, are made out of 2” wide polyester webbing. The straps are lightweight and easy to use. The most common lengths are 8’, 10’, and 12’. At the end of the strap is an O-ring or a D-ring hook.

These versatile towing straps are always used with ratchet buckles to help tighten and secure the straps around the tire.  

How to use a Lasso Strap:


Stand in front of the tire of a vehicle take the strap and wrap it over and around the back of the tire than across to the center front and loop it into the ring. Pull the webbing through in a downward manner (the strap will look like V formation) and than loop it into the ratchet and tighten it onto the trailer, wheel lift, or flatbed truck.

Lasso straps can also be used through the wheels.
