Soft Shackles

Our soft shackle are hand made from Lanex  DF-3 HMPE line.  Almost every jib sheet that Lanex Yachting USA sells has a soft shackle to connect to the clew for easy install and removal.  Other advantages include added strength in conjunction with a splice versus using knots.  We recommend for sailboats under 50' to use a 6mm soft shackle for jib clew attachment and 8mm soft shackle for 50'-larger.  The 3mm soft shackle was designed for lazy jack attachment on the boom.
