Team Tech Engineering Tiger Tail™

<table align="left" border="0" width="25%"> <tbody><tr> <td></td> </tr> </tbody></table> Many of us carry some sort of ATV retrieval / recovery system. Tow straps are cumbersome, take up space and can be very messy after pulling your buddy out of the muck.
We were contacted by a company who has a revolutionary new system which takes all the hassle out having to carry those tow ropes.

Team Tech Engineering, Inc produces an ATV accessory called the Tiger Tail™ which mounts to the rear of your ATV. The Tiger Tail™ is a self retracting tow strap system.

First Impressions

<table align="right" border="0" width="25%"> <tbody><tr> <td></td> </tr> </tbody></table> The Tiger Tail™ is made of heavy duty materials and corrosion protected for long service. With its synthetic, wear resistant coated tow rope rated at nearly 8000 lbs, there clearly is no doubt that it will withstand anything you can throw at it. The self retracting mechanism is fully sealed and 100% serviceable. Tiger Tail™ claims to have tested the mechanism to 14,000 cycles.
The mount we received was for our Grizzly 700 test vehicle. Installation was quick and easy. We were even able to leave our skid plates intact. The mount itself also has 2 eyelets for additional anchoring as well as a 1” square to allow a 1” hitch to be installed. Tiger Tail™ also has many custom vehicle mounts to choose from.
After the Tiger Tail™ was installed we pulled the tow rope, extending it to its maximum length for a measurement. The synthetic rope used with the Tiger Tail™ measured out to be 15 feet in length. The rope easily retracts without any binding or stopping. This feature makes it very nice as the constant spring tension on the rope keeps it from being dragged through the mud and water.

Field Test Results

Our field tests consisted of the recovery of one of our Test ATV’s. The Tiger Tail™ performed flawlessly while recovering this vehicle. It also makes for a great anchoring point while using your winch.
The Tiger Tail™s' self retracting mechanism also ensures that the rope always stays off the ground where you can see it. This also has the added benefit of taking up any slack there may be while towing a disabled ATV, helping to keep the rope from getting wrapped around the front tires of the ATV being towed.

<table align="left" border="0" width="25%"> <tbody><tr> <td></td> </tr> </tbody></table> While the Tiger Tail™ ATV retrieval system may be more expensive than many other concepts used to tow /recover your ATV or UTV it appears to be extremely durable and engineered with quality components to give you years of trouble free service.
This is a great way to carry a proper tow strap on your ATV or UTV. The Tiger Tail™ allows you to carry your tow strap in a handy location for safer vehicle recovery. The ATV Torture team gives the Tiger Tail™ ATV Retrieval system our stamp of approval.
