Freedom Recovery Gear 1/2" “Light Link Double D” Soft Shackles are an excellent complement to any recovery gear kit, With a minimum of 12” inside length and MBS of 55,000Lbs. This soft shackle is a beast and come in min 12" inside length to match many recovery scenarios. They easily attach winch lines, strap, extensions and other rigging together providing a secure low mass connection. Soft Shackle have an inherent flexibility and can be used where conventional steel shackles will not work like wrapping around a tube bumper or roll cage.
Freedom Recovery Gear “Light Link Double D” Soft Shackles are stronger than steel cable of the same diameter, and light enough to float on water ! Our Unique Design featuring “Double” Strand of Premium Dyneema® SK78 synthetic fiber is significantly stronger than other soft shackle Design using a single buried strand.
Our Light Link soft shackle starts with Premium Dyneema® SK78 synthetic fiber based rope manufactured in Canadian ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility which maintains the highest quality standard and every batch or rope is strength tested and verified before shipping to us. Next we hand tied and mechanically tensioned each shackle in Canada.
The final step to ensure you get the recovery gear you deserve is all of our rope products and shackle designs are sent to a company that specializes in rigging certification and destructive testing on a certified digital test bed. This gives us real Minimum Break Strength or M.B.S. for our assemblies and not a theoretical calculation.
· Extremely high strength
· MBS 55,000 Lbs
· Double Leg Design
· Light weight (1/7 weight of steel)
· Abrasion resistant
· Low stretch
· Floats in water
MINIMUM BREAKING STRENGTH (MBS) IS THE MINIMUM FORCE NECESSARY TO CAUSE A PIECE OF RECOVERY GEAR TO FAIL.
Working Load Limit (WLL) is the maximum working load designed by the manufacturer. This load represents a force that is much less than that required to make the lifting equipment fail or yield.
In line with the Cordage Institute Guidelines CI 1401-19 Recommended Safety Practices for use of Fiber rope. We apply a Design Factor DF 5:1 to our Soft Shackles, winch lines and Winch Line Extensions.
As an Example, that mean a product with a Minimum Break Strength of 40,000 lbs would have a Working load Limit of 8000 lbs.
