Sailing Soft Shackles - Diamond Knot vs Button Knot

David Lienbenberg (@jumbosailing) does professional #sailing and brought his #diamondknot#softshackles for us to break test. Then we compared them to the #buttonknot that has more strength because it makes the diameter bigger for the noose. The button knot was getting 25% to 30% more strength than the diamond knot. 2mm and 1/8" (3.2mm) were tested in this video.

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.
