I think they are a really simple device and improvement in a lot of conditions, but still holding onto the snatch block until I see some more feedback.
    You thinking like these BS 15Ton
    Again I stress do not use these with my recovery points as they were not designed for soft shackles.
    Ive noticed Road Safe selling soft shackles with copies of my recovery points, again DO NOT use them.
    if you must first use a shackle so the soft shackle has a smooth round surface to work on

    Yes TD, however like the double legged units better, I have some of the singles but have not used then as yet, and they are not protected like these are.

    20mm fits my 12mm softies easypeasy... hardly gets used these days tho, they were made for truck recovery so are waaay overkill for most 4X applications... only ever been used regularly by my young fella in a prev job he had for a coupla years.

    I made my sheaths from discards but FWIW I would suggest a metre of 20mm and a metre of 14mm and you would have a lifetime supply of sheathing for under $30.
    I just keep a few sheaths in with my softies and slide the sheath on or off a shackle as required.

    So just received this on the mail today. Looks pretty sweet actually. It's smaller than the other pics. This is the 5 ton unit which is a higher rating than the ARB snatch block.

    Keen to see the bigger one but this is a rippa.











    The slot is rated for up to 12mm but is a 20mm groove.



    The centre is about 30mm. Will be interested to see how the 12mm soft shackle fits through the hole.???



    The outer diameter is 80mm and the inner rolling diameter for the outer rope is 40mm.

    Thanks a heap to @10G for sorting this. Can't wait to have a play.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I'm keen to see how you get on with it Darren. Gee it does look small. One thing I'll be interested to hear about is if it's difficult to use coz of its size?

    Things like, is it too small to handle? Does it get lost in the recovery bag? do the ropes slip off it too easily and so on.
    .. give me land lots of land under starry skies above, don't fence me in ...
