Roadsafe  Soft Shackles are designed to be a safe, light weight, easy to use alternative to conventional steel bow shackles.

Australian made from UHWMPE 10mm 12 strand synthetic rope, as used in a range of winch ropes supplied by Roadsafe, the Roadsafe soft shackles are supplied complete with high visability abrasion resistant sheaths, and pre-tensioned for immediate use.

By using a Roadsafe soft shackle you effectively remove a very heavy and potentially lethal standard steel shackle from your recovery system.

Being manufactured from rope the Roadsafe soft shackle floats, so no more lost shackles in muddy, watery environments during recovery, and is flexible, so suitable for a huge variety of applications.
