We love simple easy to use products that are well made and serve a specific purpose. Soft Shackles are a prime example of such a product! Why not ditch those heavy, cumbersome steel shackles in favour of some lightweight, far less dangerous soft shackles instead.
The winch line construction of these Soft Shackles means they are certainly strong enough for the challenge, but do not present anywhere near such a danger should a line or tow strap break. A metal shackle in this scenario becomes a high velocity missile capable of causing some serious damage or worse still, death if someone is unlucky enough to be in it’s path. A Soft Shackle almost completely gets rid of this danger.
They are very simple to use, the knot just passes through the braids of the shackle completing the loop. They never tighten to the point of binding so they are just as simple to release.
They float in water, will land on top of mud or snow rather than disappearing never to be found again and they are made in high visibility orange to make them easy to spot in bad conditions.
All in all, a revolution in recovery safety!
– Made from Amsteel 9mm synthetic winch line.
– Safety rated at 5.5 Tons.
– Nylon webbing protects the winch line from abrasion.
– Did we mention they float?
