Straps hanging from pickups

Recommended Posts

OK, maybe im the only one that doesnt know what these things are for, but what are the black straps hanging from the rear bumper of pickups for? I see them all the time hanging from different locations, and sometimes there is one, other times I see 2, and a couple times I have seen 3 or 4. These straps are usually hanging from company trucks, but I have seen them hanging from unmarked pickups with no logos or DOT numbers.

 

I would take a picture, but usually the only time I see them is when Im driving so I cant really get a pic.

 

Can someone tell me what those are for?

Aka so you dont get shocked when you get out of your vehicle sliding across the seat.

I don't see them in this area. I can touch an electric fence and it not bother me, but I've had some static shocks at the gas pump that plumb hurt!

+1 again. The welding trucks here in the plant I work in have to have them. Possibility of gas leaks and sparks from static electricity in a gas refinery don't mix too well.
