Rope shackles are the result of combining modern DYNEEMA ropes with traditional rope art. These soft shackles are used on many racing yachts because of their low weight. They also offer many advantages on classic yachts and for sailing: Used on halyards and sheets, they reduce the risk of injury and protect the surface of the boat. Under load, the shackles tighten securely, and can be easily opened again and again even after high loads. In addition, the flexibility of the rope shackles makes them ideal for use in places that are difficult to access.
