Why choose Dynamica Soft Shackles?

Whether you are onshore or offshore Dynamica Soft Shackles is your new quicker and safer connection.

Dynamica Soft Shackles are synthetic fibre connections produced with HMPE/Dyneema® formed into a shackle.

Onshore, the Soft Shackles are used with recovery points, roll bars, axles and bumpers; replacing heavy d-rings and anchor shackles in the majority of application.

What is the breaking strength & weight of Dynamica Soft Shackles?

Dynamica Soft Shackles are produced with HMPE/Dyneema® making them as strong as steel while being up to 10 times lighter.

By changing from steel connections to Dynamica Soft Shackles you gain:

  • Lighter and safer handling

  • Less damage and scrathing paint

  • Easy storage

  • Reduced risk of overpulling

Do & don’t

To take full advantage of your Dynamica Soft Shackle, do not use it over rusty surfaces and sharp edges as this can lead to cuts, abrasion abuse and splice damages.

To attain long service life while protecting the riggers, ensure all surfaces are in proper condition.
