    Nacrabiners and Soft shackles

    After reading numerous posts on the original thread regarding nacrabiners, I found a YouTube post last night that sent me to this web page.

    http://l-36.com/soft_shackles.php?menu=4

    Lots of info from a sailors perspective regarding a tool, with a different name, I think, I will admit, that my current knowledge level may be incorrect in calling them the same.

    And I am not a sailor!

    Thanks for the heads up, I just found one of a couple of references to the L-36 site.
    I'm quickly discovering that very little has escaped the wisdom of the HF members.

    L-36 site is my go-to resource for shackles and such
