We offer a wide range of Cable Socks consist of a wire mesh tube with an eye at one end. They are hand woven using high tensile galvanised steel wire. Each size of Towing Sock has a stated strength onto which a generous factor of safety has been applied. These strengths are regularly checked. Towing Socks are reusable and add little to the outside diameter of the object being pulled.
