Soft shackles are a lightweight replacement for common steel screw pin shackles when connecting various rigging items. Factor 55 Soft Shackles are Made in the USA under uncompromising quality standards. They have been lab- and field-tested to ensure consistent repeatable minimum breaking strength values.
Factor 55 Soft Shackles feature UHMWPE construction, similar to winch lines. They’re lightweight, exceptionally strong, and can be used in place of steel screw-pin shackle in many instances. They’re lightweight and easy-to-handle nature takes metal out of the rigging equation and they store less potential energy than steel shackles. Plus, they’re easily tucked away in glove boxes, bags, and bins without adding loads of heft.
Each Factor 55 Soft Shackle is individually serialized with manufacturer date and material lot traceability. The WLL (working load limit) and MBS (minimum breaking strengths) are clearly marked.
Available in Standard Duty and Extreme Duty with for extra abrasion and UV resistance (and as much as 30% more breaking strength), and in a host of diameters and lengths, Factor 55 Soft Shackles are trusted by off-roaders, racers, emergency services worldwide.
Closed System Winching™ is a technique that uses rigging comprised entirely of closed-link hardware. The result is the most secure and reliable winch rigging available.
In Closed System Winching, the traditional hook is upgraded to a patented Factor 55 ProLink®, FlatLink®, or UltraHook® winch line shackle mount. When combined with a shackle, you’ll have an attachment that will contain loads even during momentary slack conditions where winch loads may shift. With Closed System Winching you get the extra security and confidence needed to tackle the most demanding winch recoveries.
