TunnelHuggers combine the best of tunnel “tie-downs” into one lightweight product to securely hold your tunnel. We use them for the tunnels in our yard and they hold the tunnel ends taut even with our 55lb (25kg) Border Collie charging through. To use, loop the TunnelHugger around the tunnel, pull the strap to tighten then extend the two 10” (254mm) “arms” from each side and drive a tent stake (not included) through the webbing "foot." The strap is made of 2”- (50mm) wide black high tenacity polyester seat belt webbing that is is UV stabilized, is flexible so it easily forms the tunnel shape, and has a breaking strength of 4,000lb (1,814kg). The oversize black delrin buckle allows webbing to be shortened or lengthened and releases with a squeeze of the thumb and finger. Heavy duty, 1” (25mm) “caution red” nylon webbing form the “arms” and the webbing overlaps on the ends to doubly reinforce the tie-down loop. Hours of R&D went in to determining the extra positioning of these arms on the strap to achieve maximum support and minimum movement. Two TunnelHuggers are required for 10’ (3m) tunnels, one on each end; larger tunnels might require a middle Hugger as well. Fits 24" diameter tunnels; contact us if you require Huggers for 26" diameter tunnelsCLICK HERE to watch a video on how to install Tunnel Huggers. Note in the video how the tunnel rolls a few inches as the dogs come banking through the tunnel then returns to place.  

  • Lightweight and compact
  • Holds tunnel safely and securely
  • Constructed of highly durable, UV and moisture-resistant materials built to survive the outdoors
  • Easy thumb and finger release buckle
  • Adjusts to fit all tunnel diameters up to 24” (competition size)

 NOTE: Tent stakes are not supplied and are available from camping or hardware stores. We recommend using the yellow stakes as shown in the video. On some surfaces (i.e. sand or loam) they may pull out.

Reggie Rx Wrap Testimonial

"Fits perfectly and makes icing sore joints and muscles easy. I just put on the coat, put poodle in stroller and set timer so remember to take off coat."
