The Soft Shackle is an innovative connector made from high strength UHMWPE 12-strand rope. The concept uses a noose and stopper knot to make a reliable connector that is easy to install and extremely strong. The method of stopper knot that we have used for these soft shackles is the Button Knot, which has been shown to provide a strength of just over 200% of the ropes strength. That means that these super lightweight connectors break at over 72 kN (16,186 lbf)!
Not only are soft shackles much lighter than traditional steel shackles, but they are also much more versatile! Since they are flexible and can morph to whatever shape you want, they can be used in many more configurations and with strangely shaped objects much better than steel shackles or carabiners can. There is no problem with tri-loading soft shackles either, since they can morph to the shape of what they are connecting to without any problems.
As long as you ensure the noose is properly snug up against the stopper knot, these soft shackles are as bomber (or even more bomber) than any steel connector out there! Not to mention, they are 10x lighter than steel.
