Help With Tarps

Grabbit Tool Company has developed a line of products for tarp management. Offered in three sizes (20-inch Long Grabbit, 6-inch EZ Grabbit and 1.5-inch Mini Grabbit), Grabbits allow the user to mount tarps to structures, seam multiple tarps together, replace torn grommets and firmly grab tarps. To use the two-piece Grabbits, place the “dogbone” piece where you want to grab the tarp, roll the tarp around the dogbone and slide the sleeve over the dogbone. A tug on a leader rope joins the two pieces together.

Is Your Job a Drag?

Cambridge International’s new high-performance drag mats feature an 11-gauge rod and clinched edge, rather than the traditional smashed edge. The Rivet-Free U-bar design allows for a reversible mat, with no more rivets digging into the surface of the field. Cambridge drag mats are available in three mesh styles: the traditional 1-by-1-inch mat, a 3-by-1-inch mat for aeration and a variable mesh style for high sand-content applications.
