Rubber Tarp Straps for Flatbed Tarps
Rubber tarp straps, also known as bungee cords, are commonly used in the flatbed industry to secure tarps and protect loads from the elements. These straps are available in 21 and 31-inch lengths and are specifically designed for tarp securement. Tarp straps are used in combination with other load securement methods such as chains and tie down straps in order to help ensure the load is secured and stable during transport.
It is important to note that rubber tarp straps should not be used as the primary method of load securement, as they are not designed for this purpose and can potentially cause damage or injury if used incorrectly. When using rubber tarp straps, it is important to wear protective gear and inspect the straps for damage before use. Additionally, the straps should not be used on sharp or abrasive surfaces or stored in hot areas, as the heat can cause damage to the rubber over time.
Tarp straps are generally used to secure tarp systems to flatbed trailers for transport to protect the cargo from the elements such as rain, snow, ice, direct sunlight, and strong winds. Additionally, tarp straps work great at providing protection to the load when used with tarps in the form of road grime, dust, brake dust, and mud.

Rubber Tarp Strap Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to store tarp straps? – Unlike traditional tie down straps, tarp straps need to be stored in the correct environment in order to prevent becoming damaged. When possible avoid storing tarp straps in extremely damp or humid conditions as this can cause the straps to become weakened or damaged over time. Ideally, you will want a dark, dry, location that is away from sharp objects that could cause damage to the tarp straps.
What are tarp straps made of? – Tarp straps are made from polyester and then coated in rubber materials in order to make them extremely durable, weather resistant, and designed to handle traditional wear and tear that may occur over time while transporting cargo outside in the elements.
What is the best way to measure how long of tarp straps that I need? – The best way to measure how long of tarp straps you need would be by taking a piece of yarn or string and place it end to end. Once you have the measure you need mark it with a marker or by using a piece of tape. Next, take a tape measure and measure the length of string and pair it with the closest combination of tarp straps that fit your securement needs. As a rule of thumb it’s normally better to purchase a length that is slightly larger than needed than to potentially over-stretch shorter straps.
