4mm Soft Shackle Connections for Highlines?!?!?! Full Highline Tutorial

➜➜This was the first time I used DOUBLE WRAPPED 1/8" or 3.2mm soft shackles double wrapped as connections for my segmented highlines. We show you how to make them, how we install them and the entire rigging process start to finish. A must watch for anyone rigging highlines at any lengths. Thank you Steve and Cheryll Glotfelty ( for a great trip and Henry Adams ( and Jewels ( for crushing.

➜➜Measurements: 43" of 4mm Amsteel can make a 8.5" open soft shackle which is perfect for double wrapping 25mm (1") webbing with padded loops. Our tests when I got home ranged from 34kn to 49kn. Sk99Max is 40% stronger than what I tested and will be tested to add to our future break test video on 4mm softies and you can find that high quality dyneema at Use HOWNOT2 when you check out for 5% off.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
