Here is the first in a series of product test videos we will be sharing in the weeks to come. Please be patient as we interpret the data that was accumulated. We performed dozens of pull tests, from simple proof loading for measuring possible permanent deformation, to ultimate failure testing.
This video is one of three samples of the LDP pear hole to pear hole in line axis tests for material yielding at 10,000 pounds, 20,000 pounds and finally the ultimate failure test. We observed no permanent deformation at the 10,000 and 20,000 pound proof loads.
Ultimate breaking strength of 51,000 pounds. Yes, the soft shackle was damaged in this test and was not used any further. We also performed additional LDP test pulls using the shackle pin holes as well as an off-axis pin hole to pear hole pull. We will share these videos as they are completed.
