AEV Soft Shackles are manufactured from premium Dyneema® SK78 synthetic fiber and feature an additional layer of chafe protection to protect against damage from sharp edges and rough surfaces.

Part Number  Dimensions Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) Working Load Limit (WLL)
80808005AA 3/8″ x 12″ 35,000 LBS (15,875 KG) 8,750 LBS (3,969 KG)
80808031AA 1/2″ x 18″ 60,250 LBS (27,328 KG) 15,062 LBS (6,832 KG)


Please Note: Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) is the minimum force necessary to cause a recovery device to break or fail. Working Load Limit (WLL) is the recommended maximum force a recovery device is intended to safely support, when the force is applied in-line and through the centerline of the device. The WLL is calculated by dividing the Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) by a safety factor that is generally around 4-to-1. For example, the AEV Snatch Block has an MBS of 52,000 LBS, so when divided by a safety factory of 4-to-1, the WLL becomes 13,000 LBS.
