Our soft shackle is made in China. As one of the earliest china rope manufacturers, we have focused on producing performance synthetic rope for more than 16 years.

Compared to traditional D or steel bow shackles, soft shackles are designed to be a safer, lighter and easier to use alternative. By using a soft shackle, heavy metal shackle can be removed from your recovery kit.

The soft shackle floats as they are made of synthetic UHMWPE fiber(known as dyneema). it will make you no worries abot losting it in mud or watery environments during offroad recovery. Can be used in other applications as it’s flexible and easy to handle.

If you see scuffs or cuts on the shackle, or fluffy fibers, replace it with a new one instantly. Usually, the soft shackle need to be replaced after 3-4 years of use, even if they do not appear to be damaged.
