HHippo Link Soft Shackles – Say Goodbye to Traditional Soft Shackles

Holloway Houston Inc. brings you the HHippo Link Soft Shackles – a new, improved version of the traditional soft shackles. It is made from a high-modulus polyethylene rope, which lends it exceptional strength and durability.

This single-strand soft shackle comes with a stopper at one end (a knot) and a round slice (a noose) at the other. Manufactured through our unique braiding machine, it has an additional braided polyester jacket coated with Fiber Lock as abrasion protection. This feature improves the Hippo LinkTM’s lifespan and durability.

Notable Features:

  • It is extremely light-weight, making it easy to carry or transport.
  • It can float in water, and hence, ideal for rigging applications in the deep sea or on ships.
  • It boasts a low stretch, which increases the shackle’s lifespan.
  • Because it is rust-resistant, it can be used in wet conditions, unlike steel shackles.
  • Removal is easy as it never binds or gets stuck even after attaching a heavy load.
  • It offers high strength and durability.
  • It can handle any kind of delicate workload.
  • Its Fiber Lock technology offers superior abrasion resistance.

Primary Functions

HHippo Link soft shackles are a robust and versatile shackling alternative to traditional shackles. They’re a simple and budget-friendly way of making rigging and lifting applications more secure and convenient.

Shackles are typically measured in lbs/tons, which means they don’t carry a PSI rating. PSI, or pounds per square inch, measures the amount of pressure placed on a square inch of space. It can help users estimate how much pressure or weight a shackle can endure.

At HHI, we have devised a testing method that enables us to test shackles to provide a precise PSI rating. This is incredibly helpful in situations where the application requires a PSI rating rather than the traditional lbs/tons.

Our customers can rest assured that HHippo Link soft shackles can be safely used in a wide range of rigging and lifting applications.
