If your adventures take you off-road, you need to include a tree protector in your gear kit. We never head into the backcountry without one.
There are two keys to a tree protector. First, as the name suggests, it helps protect the tree that is used as an anchor point in a recovery situation. Wrapping cable, rope, or chain around a tree damages both your equipment and the tree.
A tree protector is also safe. You never want to wrap a winch line around a tree and hook the line back onto itself; this is a dangerous practice that can lead to line failure.
ARB’s Tree Protectors are engineered and manufactured to the highest standards, making them essential gear in any off-road vehicle.
