Thursday 18th November, Melbourne: If you’re looking to reduce metal from your recovery kit, then soft shackles are the way to go. Lightweight and incredibly strong they make vehicle recoveries much safer, and Saber Offroad is one of the leading brands in soft recovery equipment.
Until now, those making the switch to soft shackles have had to rely on recovery points designed for heavy steel bow shackles. While Saber produced soft shackles with a protective binding that can be used with conventional recovery points, the sharp bend radius isn’t ideal for maximum performance of a soft shackle. And that’s why Saber Offroad has designed and developed a range of recovery points specifically to suit soft shackles.
Coated bright orange (so you’ll never lose them in the mud), constructed from up to 14.5mm plate steel with 12.9 Muts grade mounting bolts and featuring Saber Offroad’s patented design, all these recovery points are independently batch tested in a NATA-accredited facility.
Unlike regular recovery points with their square edges, Saber Offroad recovery points boast a doughnut design allowing for a significantly improved bend radius from an under-pressure soft shackle. Whilst not necessary if soft shackles are at hand, a metal bow shackle can still be used in conjunction with these recovery points.
“Our customers have been asking us to make a recovery point that is designed for soft shackles, said Steve Handbury, Saber Offroad, Director – Product Development.
“So, we sat down and looked at how we could design a vehicle-mounted recovery point specifically to suit soft shackles. We looked at a lot of different designs but our ‘ah-ha’ moment came when we split a doughnut-shaped ring in half and fitted it to a recovery point. This created a far superior bend radius to get the maximum performance from a soft shackle,” he added.
All Saber Offroad recovery points are designed, developed and destruction tested to suit specific makes and models. Currently, recovery points are available for 70, 80, and 100 Series Toyota LandCruisers, as well as the GU Nissan Patrol and D40 Navara. More vehicle makes and models will be announced in the coming months. Stock is expected to begin shipping early next year and pricing will be announced closer to the launch date.
Tested and rated, each recovery point should be fitted as a matched pair and used during any recovery situation in conjunction with a Saber Offroad rated soft shackle.
