yeah, i want a few for pulling out other people cars and such... less chance for messing their car up and its easier to fit a rope coil than a full steel shackle

that's not really how they work.....

they are not meant to replace steel shackles all together, but rather just be a substitute where a steel one will not work. i use mine when i need to winch myself or someone else sideways, from a slider or tube bumper, where the opening in a standard shackle will not fit over. these prevent the need to loop a strap around something, with a "choker", which lessens the strength of the strap.

i know you can't actually see it, but there is a soft shackle attaching the come-along to the wing of my rear bumper. this prevents the dangerous situations you get into when severely side loading a rearward facing shackle and shackle point on the bumper.



they also work great if you have two ends of a strap that need to be attached, but they don't quite fit into a shackle.

YES! They fit in the front end recovery point. They only need a 5/16' hole

another use would be for winching anchor points that are embeed into rock. great recovery points, but you can't fit a standard shackle around it.

Couldn't you just run the strap around the slider and back through the eye so it tightens on itself? That's what I've done. It is a bitch to get off though.

Looks like you just answered your own question, Justin

it can be hard to get undone. that is a choker style attachment, meaning that you have to lessen the strength of the strap (i forget the percentage). and if you are going to do a shoker with a strap, the proper way to do t is to link it to itself with a shackle, not by running it through it's own eye.

also you are left with a long strap tail, so if you are in a tight spot and the winching truck is only 15 feet away, you're in trouble if all you have is a 20 or 30 ft strap.
