The Factor 55 10 inch and 20 inch diameter Extreme Duty Soft Shackles are made in the USA under the uncompromised Factor 55 quality standards. Like all Factor 55 rigging products, these shackles have been lab and field tested to assure consistent minimum breaking strength values. Each Extreme Duty Soft Shackle is constructed of HMPE Plasma rope that includes additional abrasion and UV protection with a woven polyester jacket that is carefully whipped and coated with Fiber Lock. Note how the protective jacket is attached close to the knot, providing as much abrasion protection as possible. For their size and weight, these Extreme Duty Soft Shackles provide an additional 25-30% verified breaking strengths when compared to common standard soft shackles on the market today.
The longer 20 inch diameter version functions as a common soft shackle but also allows for the user to double loop the shackle resulting in breaking strengths exceeding 70,000 pounds. WLL and minimum breaking strengths clearly marked.
*NOTE- Although the test data for the doubled 20 inch soft shackle samples consistently broke above 83,000 pounds, we believe that using a conservative breaking strength of 70,000 pounds is more appropriate.

Here is the first in a series of product test videos we will be sharing in the weeks to come. Please be patient as we interpret the data that was accumulated. We performed dozens of pull tests, from simple proof loading for measuring possible permanent deformation, to ultimate failure testing. This video is one of three samples of the LDP pear hole to pear hole in line axis tests for material yielding at 10,000 pounds, 20,000 pounds and finally the ultimate failure test. We observed no permanent deformation at the 10,000 and 20,000 pound proof loads. Ultimate breaking strength of 51,000 pounds. Yes, the soft shackle was damaged in this test and was not used any further. We also performed additional LDP test pulls using the shackle pin holes as well as an off-axis pin hole to pear hole pull. We will share these videos as they are completed.

Thanks again to everyone who voted for Factor 55 this year at The SEMA Show. We are honored to receive another 3 Awards for Best Innovative Product in the off-road industry. Here’s a look at the first new product, the Load Distribution Plate- LDP. This plate will allow you to pull from multiple directions distributing those loads across the plane of the plate instead of through the body of a common screw pin shackle. More details to follow.
