Axle Catch Ropes

Axle catch ropes are safety devices used in the transportation industry to prevent a detached trailer axle from striking other vehicles or objects in the event of an axle failure. Axle catch ropes are typically made of a strong, durable material such as nylon or polyester and are designed to be looped around the trailer axle and secured to the trailer frame. In the event that the axle becomes detached from the trailer, the catch rope will prevent the axle from falling to the ground and potentially causing a hazard on the road.

Axle catch ropes are required by law in many jurisdictions and are commonly used in the transportation of heavy equipment, construction materials, and other large loads. Proper installation and maintenance of axle catch ropes is important for ensuring the safe and reliable operation of the trailer and preventing accidents on the road.
