What is a Black Eye Soft Shackle and Why You Need One for Your 4x4 Adventures?

If you're an off-road enthusiast, you know that having the right gear can make all the difference in your adventures. And one piece of gear that you definitely want to consider adding to your kit is the Black Eye Soft Shackle by George4x4.

Traditional steel shackles are heavy, prone to rusting and corrosion, and can be dangerous if they fail under extreme loads. Soft shackles, on the other hand, are made of high-strength synthetic fibres and are designed to break under extreme loads, making them a much safer option. They're also more versatile than steel shackles, as they can be used in a variety of situations, including winching, rigging, and recovery. And because they're lightweight and easy to handle, they're ideal for off-road adventures where weight and space are at a premium.

So what sets the Black Eye Soft Shackle apart from other soft shackles? The Black Eye design is specifically engineered to prevent the small loop from becoming spread when passing through a shackle receiver. When a soft shackle is used repeatedly, the fibres tend to separate, making it difficult to pass through the hitch. This unique design allows all the fibres to be tightened, making it easier to pass through the eye of a hitch block and prevents the soft shackle from getting stuck or falling out, making it easier and safer to use.Β (Check the video out!
