Bubba Rope Releases NexGen PRO Gator-Jaw Synthetic Shackle

New from Bubba Rope – the NexGen PRO Gator-Jaw synthetic shackle. This shackle is extremely easy-to-use and has a higher break-rating for its size than any other synthetic shackle available today. See more details below.

Official Release:

Bubba Rope, the innovator in vehicle recovery and towing products, has expanded its Gator-Jaw synthetic shackle series to
include the all-new NexGen PRO. A new slider design makes for an extremely easy-to-use synthetic shackle that has a higher break-rating for its size than any other synthetic shackle available today.

“We have reinvented the synthetic shackle, taking it another level of ease and strength,” said Jim Grass, New Products Manager for Bubba Rope.

The Gator-Jaw synthetic shackle series is used recreationally and commercially for safely connecting vehicle or equipment recovery ropes and tow straps. The NexGen PRO is made from high modulus polyethylene fiber rope, which is a lighter and safer replacement for heavy steel shackles and hooks. Bubba Rope engineered this new synthetic shackle in a way that eliminates the same rope-weakening splices found in other soft-shackle designs, by using an epoxy rubber slider that slips over the patented knot. The result is a shackle that is flexible enough to wrap around or through almost any pulling point, and with a higher tensile strength than steel.

The 3/8-inch NexGen PRO synthetic shackle weighs only 6.5 ounces yet has a 47,000 lb. breaking strength, an increase of 46-percent over the original Gator-Jaw synthetic shackle. Additionally, all Gator-Jaw synthetic shackles contain no metal so they will not rust and are lightweight enough to float.

Features:

  • Special slider design makes the new shackle stronger and simpler to use
  • Safe replacement for heavy steel shackles or hooks
  • Ideal for off-road use as well as industrial applications
  • Only 6.5 ounces, but with break-strength rating of 47,000 pounds
