The NexGen PRO Gator-Jaw® synthetic shackle is lightest and strongest 5/16" diameter synthetic shackle ever made. Weighing only 1 ounce it has a rated breaking strength of 26,000 lbs.
The unique design has eliminated all rope-weakening-splices found in other soft shackles. The locking loop incorporates a flexible tough epoxy rubber slider that slips over a patented designed knot making a strong closed connector. The new slider is made from tough rubber epoxy giving it the strength and stretch to hold up to the wear and tear of off-road recovery.
All Gator-Jaw synthetic shackles are made from HMPE synthetic fibers and contain no metal, so they won’t rust and are so light they float.
