Shackles - "Soft Cuffs"
So taking a hint from Yukon with his "Yackle" (and further by oldgringo in the thread) -
Here are the dimensions -
The issue is this -
When loaded, the shackles bind up like so. Contemplating stitching on a portion of the milked part? Maybe a full rework from another busy-minded individual like myself.
A perfect solution would be to simply interlock 2 soft shackles, but what's the fun in that;)
You can put another knot in each side where the 'connecting' length is to lock the buries in place.
You could market these to law enforcement as lightweight handcuffs. :)
Handcuffs, but...can you get 'em off?:D
Not much more useful than a single soft shackle or even 2 interlocked soft shackles.
I do love the innovation of this forum. I saw the post from this morning and had to hop on the "challenge" of not being able to do it.
I hate to seem obtuse but what are these especially good for? :confused:
They're kind of fascinating and I'll likely make some but what are you planning to do with them that you can't do with a single?
I dunno i think it carries similar functionality as the s-biners. You can disconnect whatever from whatever and still have the "hardware" attached to the "base" preventing loss.
Yeah, not much more functionality than a single soft shackle (but then again the same could be said for the s-biner compared to a regular biner).
I really just did it for the heck of it when it was being discussed that it may not be possible to do from the other thread mentioned above.
I got to thinking... and this is what came of it.
The attraction of s-biners isn't function, they just look cool. Ditto the Tender-biner.:jj:
