Model # 12501946 | Mfg # SFTSHKL XL L

Light, strong, dependable, and useful for all sorts of applications where a stainless shackle would otherwise be employed. One end is a knot; the other end is a splice. Our conservative tests show breaking strength greater than the line itself. Dyneema SK-75 connectors are lighter, stronger than steel, and best of all, they are “soft” and kind to anything they attach to or bang into-including your head.

  • Length: 5 5/8"

Comments about West Marine Dyneema SK-75 Soft Connectors, Soft Shackle, XL Long:

These soft shackles are a best-kept-secret. Extremely strong and reliable with many uses. Once you try one of these you will discover you can make them yourself with 3 ft of Dyneema or Amsteel blue. It is a neat bit of rope work and a special knot that takes 15-20 minutes, but homemade is just as good and one-tenth the cost.

Excellent idea

Comments about West Marine Dyneema SK-75 Soft Connectors, Soft Shackle, XL Long:

This is a strong, lightweight alternative to SS shackles. I used it to attach blocks for reefing lines to my mainsail's reefing cringles.
Currently there seems to be only one size available.
