Easy, light, and ready-to-go tow lines in one simple container. Ravenox offers a full range of high-performance synthetic rope solutions which are stronger, safer, lighter, and easier to handle than wire rope.

The ETS-450 and ETS-900 Emergency Tow Packages are complete rope assemblies consisting of a Plasma® Tow Line with thimbled eyes, Toro® floating pickup line, and a lighted buoy, all stored inside a weatherproof plastic container.
