New Rope Shackles Constructed With High Modulus Polyethylene Fiber To Offer Increased Flexibility
Suwanee, Ga. (January 31, 2017) – Rugged Ridge®, a industry leading manufacturer of high quality Jeep®, truck and off-road accessories, today announced the expansion of its line of off-road recovery gear with the addition of new Soft Rope Shackles for various on- and off-road applications.
Rugged Ridge has taken the same developments in synthetic rope technology over the past decade and applied them to a simple, easy-to –use recovery shackle. The new Soft Rope Recovery Shackles are 7/16-inch diameter section of high-quality High Modulus Polyethylene Fiber (HMPE) rope, which is woven into a “noose” that is stronger than a comparable steel D-ring shackle while gaining infinite flexibility over its rigid steel counterparts. With a 7,500 pound working load limit, they are significantly stronger than a in comparison to a steel shackle of the same diameter.
The Soft Rope Shackles’ one-piece construction eliminates the chance of losing shackle pins, and allows the pins to be manipulated easily even while wearing gloves. The light weight of the equipment allows the pins to float, making them perfect for use in marine applications. Soft Rope Shackles are so lightweight that, if dropped they will sit on top of mud rather than sinking to the bottom.
Rugged Ridge’s Soft Rope Shackles allow for limitless recovery scenarios as their flexibility permits securing to a wider array of recovery points. The synthetic rope fiber does not absorb water, has low-friction characteristics and resists abrasions. The rope shackle can be washed with water, air dried, and will not rust. Soft Rope Shackles can even be wrapped around a roll bar, when not in use, making a convenient grab handle.
The Rugged Ridge Soft Rope Shackles are backed by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty and are available through select Jeep and off-road parts & accessories retailers nationwide with retail pricing starting at $46.99.
