APS Dyneema SK-78 Shackle Loops are made in America. They were developed and are made by our expert riggers in our shop in Annapolis, Maryland, U.S.A., and we are proud of it!
Spliced onto the end of a stripped halyard, a Dyneema shackle loop is the lightest halyard attachment available. We handcraft loops in a wide range of diameters and lengths and we can customize them by . Extremely lightweight and strong, these can replace stainless steel shackles almost anywhere you need them and are ideal for jib sheets, because they won't bang up your mast or get chewed up by inhaulers.
Our shackle loops are also a great way to attach blocks like the Harken T2 or Airblocks to a pad eye, toe rail, or boom when you need a block to rotate and pivot in ways a hard shackle can't. We include a Velcro securing strap with each one, to prevent the loop from coming undone in no-load or flogging situations. *Overall 'length' is determined by closing Dyneema shackle loop and measuring the inside length.
