Corner Protector Comparison Video: What’s Best for Your Cargo?

Some of the different corner protectors we offer include plastic, steel, rubber, fabric, felt, and sleeves. What are the differences?

Corner protectors are an inexpensive way to protect not only your cargo but your straps, chains, tarps, and other tie-down equipment.

Some of the types of corner protectors that we offer include plastic, steel, rubber, fabric, felt, and sleeves.

Plastic Corner Protectors

Plastic corner protectors, or V boards, are flexible, lightweight, stackable, and weather resistant. We sell many different types of plastic corner protectors including corner protectors for bricks, flexible tarp corner protectors, and long and narrow edge protectors that are great for large sheets of drywall and plywood.

Steel Corner Protectors

Steel corner protectors are excellent for heavy-duty uses involving transport chain and for larger, heavier cargo like coils. The durable galvanized steel is protected from premature rust and allows these metal edge protectors to last a long time. We also sell steel corner protectors with rubber lining.

Felt Corner Protectors

Felt corner protectors are durable and tear resistant, great for protecting sensitive cargo and tie down straps. They’re made of industrial grade felt material and are commonly used as lifting sling pads and coil padding as well as for edge protection.

Protective Sleeves

We also have two different types of sleeves: the Cordura wear sleeve and the fleece sleeve protector. Both sleeves wrap around your tie down straps and provide abrasion resistance. The fleece sleeve also adds a level of padding and is great if you’re hauling vehicles with nice paint or chrome that you want to protect.

Extension Handle for Corner Protectors

Using corner protectors is easier than ever with our 8-foot extension handle, specifically designed to make it easier to place corner protectors, brick guards, and veeboards without having to climb onto the trailer. It extends to approximately 8 feet and then easily retracts to approximately 4 feet for easy storage.

Wear Sleeves for Tie Down Straps

These lightweight yet rugged strap protectors are also known as Cordura Wear pads due to the common use of CORDURA® fabric in many of the sleeves. Today, most of these popular protective sleeves for tie down straps are made of a generic ballistic nylon fabric, but still offers the same superior abrasion- and cut-resistance. It’s important to note that a protective wear sleeve will not add any strength to the strap or increase its working load limit or break strength.

A protective wear pad can be used with all sizes and types of webbing, and the simple tube design fits snug enough to stay in place, yet can still be moved to the area on the strap where you need it. Because it’s movable, you can place it so it’s also in contact with the cargo, reducing sliding strap marks on the load.

Cordura wear sleeves are also customizable since they can be ordered by the foot. Widths available include:

Protective Wear Sleeves for 1″ Webbing
Protective Wear Sleeves for 2″ Webbing
Protective Wear Sleeves for 3″ Webbing
Protective Wear Sleeves for 4″ Webbing

Because the nylon fabric is designed to fit snug against the webbing, they can sometimes be challenging to slide on. To install, fold the webbing in half, push through the sleeve, then unfold and pull to straighten.
