Jerk-It™ K.E.R.R. Line (Kinetic Energy Recovery Rope), 7/8" x 30 feet

Jerk-It™ line is a custom spliced double braid manufactured in Canada from 100% nylon yarn. Freedom Recovery Gear K.E.R.R. Kinetic Energy Recovery Rope is an excellent complement to any recovery gear kit.

Freedom Recovery Gear's K.E.R.R. lines use the kinetic properties of nylon to "sling-shot" objects free from mud, sand or snow. Available in a bright Fire Cracker red, this line is a must have for any recreational off-roader as well as the professional dealing with heavy machinery which has become stuck.

These line's DBN meets military specification (40-GP 16M Type 1).

Use common sense and ALWAYS KEEP SAFETY THE TOP PRIORITY and ensure your application is verified for proper sizing prior to use. Remember knots in a rope or the use of a nylon rope while it is wet will have a negative impact on the rope's strength.


  • Avoid abrasive surfaces and any sharp edges.
  • Use shackles of an appropriate strength for the rope and consider switching to soft shackles for increased safety.
  • Always check the splice before and during attachment to each vehicle.
  • Test before use. Try light pulls to test attachment before pulling at maximum force.
  • Keep spectators out of the tow zone.
  • A Bowline knot is recommended if the rope must be knotted. This will undo most easily after use.
  • A knot can reduce a rope’s strength by as much as half.

Application Sizing Suggestions 3:1 Safety Factor

  • 5/8" Max 4,000 lbs GVW IE Side-by-Side UTV
  • 7/8" Max 7,000 lbs GVW Tacoma/Jeep
  • 1/2" Max 9,000 lbs Full size Land cruiser, 1/2 ton Pick up
  • 1-1/4" 14,000 lbs GVW 1 ton

Usage: Crawl, Walk Run...

  • Crawl: First stage is a simple traction extraction put pressure on the rope and see if the stuck vehicle moves.
  • Walk: Second stage is a walking pace 2-3 mph that's actually a lot of force!
  • Run: Third Stage is a run about 5-6 mph this speed will exert a tremendous amount of force!
  • Make Sure your attachment point is up to the task and use only with rated frame mounted recovery points.

Working Load Limit (WLL) is the maximum working load designed by the manufacturer. This load represents a force that is much less than that required to make the lifting equipment fail or yield.
In line with the Cordage Institute Guidelines CI 1401-19 Recommended Safety Practices for use of Fiber rope, we apply a Design Factor (DF) of 5:1 to our Soft Shackles, Winch Lines and Winch Line Extensions.
For Example, a product with a Minimum Break Strength (MBS) of 40,000 lbs would have a Working Load Limit (WLL) of 8,000 lbs.
