CAPTO Soft Shackle CAPTO Soft Shackle
Strong, compact, and durable, the CAPTO Soft Shackle is an excellent companion for every CAPTO. Our CAPTO Soft Shackle installs through the CAPTO cam axle to provide an additional attachment point for smooth remote resets and easy device stowage on a harness or gear rack. It should not be considered a life-supporting or load bearing / rated attachment point. The CAPTO Soft Shackle is ideally sized for easy installation and operation. Its low friction Dyneema braid has a 3.5 mm external diameter, allowing it to hand feed through CAPTO’s 3.9 mm rivet hole without requiring mouse lines or other tools. The length is long enough for attaching carabiners yet short enough to prevent looping around the tail of the CAPTO Cam.
The key to using the CAPTO soft shackle is manipulating the outer sheath, which adjusts the overall shape and allows opening and closing of the loop around the ball knot. To install the CAPTO Soft Shackle, straighten and lengthen it to the maximum extent by pulling the sheath toward the loop end. Push the loop end through the CAPTO rivet hole in the cam axle. Pull the Soft Shackle all the way through the CAPTO until the ball knot contacts the sidewall. Open the loop by pulling on the loop and pulling back on the sheath. Pass the loop over the ball knot. Secure it in place by moving the sheath toward the loop end to close it around the ball knot. As with any accessory loop used in this manner, monitor the CAPTO Soft Shackle to keep it away from moving parts. Refer to the CAPTO manual for details.
