Red Winch Snatch Ring 8T + Roadsafe Soft Shackle & Drying Bag
RED Winch “Snatch Rings” offer a strong, lightweight and safe alternative to the traditional metal snatch block.
The “Snatch Ring” fits perfectly into a pocket or glove box. This makes it an ideal accessory to have in your truck for overlanding expeditions or in competition when your co-driver is having to climb steep slopes.

Frictional losses are not as big as one might think, especially when using low friction line such as Dyneema or Plasma.
Lighter and smaller than a conventional steel or aluminium pulley block, these Snatch Rings are a popular alternative for many applications where traditional blocks once ruled. Instead of rolling on a pulley sheave, the active line with a ferrule merely slides on the inside smooth surface of the ring.
Because it weighs very little, it is less likely to cause injury if it strikes a crew member in the unlikely event the truck rolls and it hasn’t been secured.
It is easy to store in your truck cab, doesn’t damage surrounding kit, doesn’t rust and can be used for in far more situations that a traditional steel shackle.
Our “Snatch Rings” have been extensively tested. The ideal strength can approach five (5) times the line strength if required. This means when attached to a typical winch line, it is likely the winch line will break long before the “Snatch Ring” does.

A few key features of the Roadsafe Soft Shackle…
· Maximum strength to weight ratio and strength comparable to steel
· Lowest elongation, minimal stretch
· Light weight for gross weight reduction
· Time saver, takes less time to set up than a conventional shackle
· Floats in water & muddy environments
· Abrasion resistant sleeves for maximum durability
In competition use, for the amount of times you actually need one, we feel it is a much more practical accessory to have in your truck than the heavy traditional snatch blocks.
Our testing has show that using the larger diameter Soft Shackle works best with recovery situations. Giving much bigger factors of safety in the line and a more practical feel to them. The larger rope spreads the loads much more efectively and produces very little friction or heat during the recovery process.
Our recommendation is to use 14mm soft shackle with this “Snatch Ring”
