Ancra has upgraded its X-Treme Guard Corner Protectors with a different ribbed pattern. 

The protectors distribute strap tension over the length of the guard to prevent cargo from being crushed by cargo straps. The new rib spacing allows for various strap widths and helps to stack protectors more efficiently, Ancra officials said. The company also changed the color from black to blue.

Made in lengths of 12, 24, 39, and 48 inches, these guards are strong yet lightweight, and crack/weather resistant to 30 degress Farheinent below zero, according to the company.

Ancra also updated the 50089-36 to a 50089-39, representing its 3-inch length extension.
