Protect critical tie-downs before serious damage occurs.

“It started with a frantic call from a local tuner, asking if we offered a protective heat sleeve for dynamometer tie-down straps,” said Mike Buca, DEI Product Manager.

“It seems this tuner nearly launched a car while on the dyno because the exhaust heat from the tailpipe actually burned through an already weakened area on the strap.”

Fortunately, DEI already had the right material for the job with its high-temperature-resistant aluminised material which can withstand 500°F (260°C) direct heat and 2000°F (1093°C) of radiant heat.

So, it was just a matter of machining it up into 5in-wide-by-36in-long (12.7cms x 91.44cms) sleeves to fit over tie-down straps.

Now DEI’s Dyno Strap Guard is generally available to all tuners as part number 10466 at £30.65 plus shipping and import tax.
