GIN Soft Shackle
The GIN Soft shackle
VERY light and very strong!
Can be used for reserve connection or for hang point connection.
The GIN Soft shackle is a perfect replacement for a traditional metal maillon or karabiner, and can be used for webbing-to-webbing connections, e.g. between your rescue and Y-bridle or between your wing’s riser and the harness hang point.
Compared to a metal maillon, the GIN Soft shackle is up to 8 times lighter with equivalent breaking strength. It features a locking system to prevent slippage under load and is easy to undo without tools.
Please refer to the product manual for installation instructions:
Minimum Breaking strength: 2,600kg
Below is a video with instructions of how to fit the GIN Soft Shackle. GIN recommend using tape around the ends of the webbing to prevent rotation but we would recommend using rubber bands or O-rings instead.
