PRODUCTS / HARDWARE / SOFT RELEASE
Soft release (as the name tells :)) is used to release a slackline (rigged by a soft-point system, such as "Buckingham" etc.). Basically it is a piece of webbing wrapped 5-6 times between two shackles (or carabiners, shackle + weblock etc.). Loose end of the webbing is secured with two safety knots. To detension the main line you have to untie the knots and let the webbing release slowly. It is necessary to hold the soft telease webbing in hand all the time. Our soft releases are equipped with a double sided velcro strap that is used to hold the webbing together while instaling the soft release or while tying / untying the knot. The velcro must NOT be used as the only way to secure the loose end of soft release! Doubled sewn loop is attached on the shckle side. It eliminates the danger of unscrewing the shackle while detensioning the main line. Soft release is made of Neon webbing and is suitable for any line. Its breaking trength is 60 kN (with 6 wraps) and WLL is 8 kN. It is available in lengths 6 m, 12 m and 18 m.
