Q. Just what is a Jeri-Rigg?
A. The Jeri-Rigg is a tie-down/anchor point/ attachment point/ strap that is used in conjunction with various securing mediums such as bungee cords, tie down straps, lanyards, ropes, carabineers, chains, etc. It eliminates the practice of wrapping bungee cords/tie down straps around an object and attaching the hook to itself, resulting in a poor connection, scratching, and slipping. The Jeri-Rigg provides a non-scratch, non-slip surface providing a safe and secure connection.
Q. How did you come up with the idea?
A. I was loading an object into a trailer for transport. I hooked one end of my tie down strap in the trailers D ring and went to hook the other end of the tie down strap on the object I was transporting and found no place to attach the hook, except to wrap the tie down strap around the object and then hook it to itself. This could have caused it to scratch the paint and/or result in a poor connection or slipping.
Q. Why the name Jeri-Rigg?
A. It is common to use the phrase “jerry rig” which roughly means to solve a problem with whatever tool or materials you have at hand. Having a set of these straps on hand can solve a lot of common every day problems whether it be transportation, construction, recreation, or around the home. One person commented to me “it’s like duct tape, endless uses, and handy to have around when you need it”. Since my name is Jerry I thought why not, it’s also an easy name to remember for marketing purposes. I did change the spelling to make it easier to Trademark.
Q. How strong and durable is it?
A. The Jeri-Rigg (Eye version) has a tested workload between 1100-3000 pounds and has a breaking strength between 3300-9000 pounds and comes in 4 sizes; the “Hook” version has a working load between 280-500 pounds and a breaking strength between 840-1500 pounds and comes in three sizes.

Q. Are the hooks made of stainless steel too?
A. No, but we wanted to make sure there would be no scratching of whatever item you wanted to hang from them. The hooks are made of 1020 steel, then powder coated to protect them from corrosion.
Q. How easy is it to use?
