Econo Flip Tarps

An economical way to cover your load

The Hydro chain driven crank provides positive traction.  The crank handle rotates allowing the assembly to fit tight against the box wall.  A ratchet safety system prevents the crank handle from rotating freely while closing the tarp system.  The crank assembly components are plated to reduce corrosion. The specially coated chain (Hydro) is used to provide maximum corrosion resistance, far superior to zinc or nickel, while maintaining the strength and durability of carbon steel chain.

Heavy duty helical torsion springs on both sides provide equal resistance and tension control when operating the tarp system
Manufactured from a superior plastic, the rear
