Capotec2015 Posted August 30, 2018 Share Posted August 30, 2018 HI, I wasnt going to post this as I thought it might be a bit of a daft question but its bugging me. On my setup I have the swing arms with holes and in one of the holes there is the D-shackle. Attached to that there is a kind of loop of double thickness webbing and connected to that is the carabiner. So, if the d-shackle was to snap -the entire connection to that side of the wing is gone. An unlikely scenario I would imagine but I wondered how strong the shackles were. Its the ones that came the motor. I haven't changed anything. The carabiner has a rating thats printed on it and I know the webbing will be strong - but I just wondered how strong. What can the webbing take and what can the d-shackle take in terms of pounds/kilos before failure? If someone either knows or can hazard an educated guess, it would be most welcome. thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
