Dyneema® Shackles and Carabiners

Textile shackles and snap hooks are becoming increasingly popular, but what are their main advantages and what are they used for?

In a nutshell, textile connectors are universal, flexible, resistant, durable and safe, making them an ideal replacement for traditional fittings on board your boat.

Textile connector for halyard, sheet, pulley, luff, ...

Advantages

Universal, the Nodus Factory textile connectors can be used in a wide range of applications.

  • Protects against impact and damage to mast, rig, deck, sails and crew...
  • 8 times lighter than metal equivalents

Service life

The service life of textile connectors depends on the working load. For a reasonable use at 50% of its breaking load, they will last longer.

Our tables show the maximum recommended sail area, and for use at 25% of its breaking load it will last twice as long as a shackle used at 50% of its breaking load.

A visual inspection when rigging will tell you the condition of your connectors, and heavy linting will indicate that it's time to replace or repair them...or give them a new lease of life with our protective coatings.

Our Dyneema® connectors are stronger, have equivalent longevity and a repairability index that's non-existent with traditional stainless steel fittings.

Made from Dyneema®, Vectran®, Technora®, Kevlar® or PES® Tech fibers, Nodus Factory's Made in France 4.0 rigging uses the excellence of new-generation materials from the worlds of space, aeronautics and ocean racing.
