Segment Connection Kit - 2x 5mm Soft Shackles


Segment Connection Kit - 2x 5mm Soft Shackles

Say hello to the new Segment Connection Kits from Balance Community. These kits include everything you need to connect 2 segments together on a long highline. The kits we sell are aimed at a "2-through-4" type of connection system, where you install 2 connectors through all 4 sewn loops of your two segments (2 mainline sewn loops and 2 backup sewn loops).

This kit includes 2x 5mm x 10cm soft shackles made from Amsteel Blue, coated Silver. It also includes 2x soft thimbles to be placed under both sewn loops on both sides. The thimbles are made from either Green or Green 20, depending on what width you select. These thimbles are a must when using soft connectors on sewn loops.

The 5mm soft shackles are connected to all 4 sewn loops. The heads of the soft shackles should be inverted and placed on the inside of the soft shackle loop, as seen in the second and third photos.

The entire kit weighs just 43 grams, just over half the weight of a single 8mm quicklink. This is a very lightweight way to connect your segments together.

Spliced and assembled here in our warehouse in Colorado.
