The JackStrap helps prevent unplanned hose lays by providing a way to attach hose ends to the apparatus. Most modern fire hose has a jacket that is slippery to make it easier for hose to be deployed at a fire scene, this also makes it easier for unsecured hose to accidentally fall or slide off while the apparatus is in motion.This safety device has been developed by FRC to help prevent fire hose from inadvertently coming off the apparatus while responding to or returning from an incident.
The JackStrap provides a simple, inexpensive way of securing the hose end to the apparatus while in transit.
