Haul Truck safety tie-backs are a critical safety tool during any haul truck maintenance operation.

Union TufStrops are designed from high molecular weight polyethylene fiber (HMPE) for maximum strength at minimum weight.

TufStrops are manufactured to order…specify eye-to-eye length and safe working load (SWL) requirements.

  • Torque balanced construction
  • Reduced weight = safer to handle and install
  • No broken wire hazards
  • Easy single operator installation
  • No kink damage design
  • Safety orange for high visibility
  • Easy visual inspection criteria…no internal hidden wear or corrosion
  • Same strength whether wet or dry
  • Minimal moisture absorption…will not freeze-up in cold wet weather
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Non-conductive
  • Minimal moisture absorption
  • Resistant to fuels and cleaning solutions
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Excellent UV resistance


TufStrop outer protective coatings and sleeving enhances the properties of the HMPE fiber with increased UV and abrasion resistance making for a tough, durable, long lasting safety cable.

This advanced fiber offers unique advantages over steel rope assemblies:

  • 1/5th the weight of socketed steel rope assemblies
  • Extremely low elongation (comparable to steel wire rope)
