FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here are a few of the questions we get the most. If you don’t see what’s on your mind, reach out to us anytime on phone, chat, or email.

What are your hooks made from?

Our large hooks are Secure-It Quick®, which are made from a fiberglass infused nylon, and our small hooks are blown mold plastic.

Are your products really made in the U.S.A?

Yes, they are. Every FAST-TARP product is hand-made in the great state of Washington. Most, if not all of our competitors, are U.S.A. businesses but purchase their products from overseas manufacturers. By our very design, FAST-TARP products cannot be mass produced by machine. Each tarp is hand-made, while every bungee and strap must be hand assembled. We exclusively purchase our base materials from U.S.A. sourced businesses. Our vendors are located in Oregon, Utah, Georgia, California, Florida and New England.

Are your products recycleable?

Yes! FAST-TARP is committed to protecting our environment and we selected base materials for all of our products that can be recycled. As we are located in Washington, the Evergreen State, we cherish our clean air, water and forests and want to leave a better Washington for the future. Also, when you purchase a higher-quality FAST-TARP product, you reduce the overall environmental impact. Our products last longer which reduces your need to replace them more often, which in turn reduces the amount of waste.

I’ve seen bungees for sale that are ‘military grade'. Are FAST-TARP bungees military grade?

The term “military-grade” with respects to bungee cords is a misnomer. Some of our competitors use the term “military grade” as a selling point but, there is no such thing as a military-grade bungee. We deep-dived into this claim and found an obscure reference to an online source that referenced a German military specification which has absolutely zero meaning or significance. The US military does however, have specific criteria for some items called Military Specifications (MILSPEC) or Military Standard (MIL-STD). You can find these specifications online, but there is no MILSPEC criteria for bungee cord.

Your bungees are significantly higher priced than ones that I can buy online or at stores, why?

You get what you pay for. We use superior materials in our bungees. From the bungee cord to the hooks, all made and assembled in the USA. Fast-Tarp believes consumers are entitled to a quality product. A product that will meet your needs and give you value for your hard-earned money.

Why are your bungees superior to others?

We get asked this a lot. Virtually all bungee cord is constructed the same way: an inner core of rubber/latex strands or solid rubber, wrapped in a cover or sheath. The primary reason our bungees are superior: the quality of the base materials. The bungee cord we use has a higher quality rubber/latex core and the sheath is made of a high-quality polypropylene. The rubber/latex cores of FAST-TARP bungees are of a higher purity while many of our competitors use an inferior core. Also, many of the less expensive bungees on the market use a cheaper cotton-poly sheath, which can deteriorate faster than a higher quality product and can catastrophically fail.

Why do you offer different size hooks and bungees?

We believe in using the proper size bungee for the proper application and the proper size hook with the proper size bungee. Our small bungees (6mm) should be used for light applications such as holding open a screen door when you are trying to squeeze a new couch through the door, but you forgot to measure the opening and now just the two of you are rotating the couch 13 times (no, turn the OTHER way, the OTHER-OTHER WAY) in a futile attempt to get the couch in the house then grasping the fact you need to remove the feet from the couch which means you have to go to the garage and get a screwdriver to remove the feet then realize you got a Phillips head screwdriver and need that little hex wrench then finally admit you should have just paid the delivery fee instead of trying to save 75 bucks.

What is your privacy policy?

We don’t sell your information, period. We don’t keep your payment information, period. Many businesses sell your information as a part of their business plan. We never will. The only records we maintain are purchases made through our staff or from our website and for three reasons: 1) state and federal tax purposes, 2) process refunds, warranty claims and to review fraud, and 3) provide purchase orders to businesses who use our products. Also, we will never spam you with unsolicited emails. Most, if not all businesses will flood your inbox with offers, discounts and solicitations once they have your email.
