Tarp straps are are available in either rubber, synthetic, bungee cord style. All three variations are hooked on both ends and stretch to create the desired tension. They are used most frequently to hold tarps and light duty applications, but because tarp straps are so simple to use, there are many uses.
Rubber and synthetic tarp straps are black and have wire s hooks on each end. The length of these straps is measure only by the length of the rubber portion , not including the hook.
Bungee cord straps are also made of rubber or synthetic rubber, but they have a polypropylene cover to help protect the strap and cargo during transport. Bungee cords typically have a coated J hook, rather than an S hook. The coating helps prevent damage to cargo.
