Splicing & Sailmaking
This HMPE loop replaces all steel shackles and snap-shackles. With a significant weight saving, it is gentle with the hardware and rig parts (mast, boom, pole, deck) while maintaining the block in perfect work position.
Noiseless, excellent resistance to UV and chaffing, exceptional weight / resistance ratio.
Alternative to shackles for connecting lines to travellers, toe-rails, booms and spars (bowsprits, poles…), connection of backstays and running backstays to block and tackles…
100% HMPE (High Modulus Polyethylene) 32 plait braid.
