Description Technical Specs
Stronger than steel light as a feather. 1/4" Soft Shackles are a revolutionary connector that can replace many steel counterparts in your slackline rig and anchors. The soft shackle from Balancing Earth can reduce your weight by pounds and should be in every Slackers gear bag.

The soft shackle from Balancing Earth is made from Dyneema SK-78 12 strand rope. It is extremely high strength and lightweight. These soft shackles are made using a Button Knot and an Eyelet Noose made from feeding the Strande through its self. The Button Knot combined with the buried strands makes the soft shackle over 200% a single lines strength. Making the BES soft shackle over 19,108 lbf. (85kN)

All Balancing Earth Soft Shackles come with a Dyneema 48 carrier strand Sheath Cover for added abrasion resistance.

All soft shackles are for advanced rigging techniques and the user should have the knowledge to set the loop and stopper properly before using.
With the loop set properly against the stopper knot, the soft shackle is more than 10x the strength of steel at a fraction of the weight.
Due to the ability to change shape soft shackles ARE approved for tri loading.

Please note that soft shackles should NEVER be used on any hardware with Burrs or Sharp Edges.
