My Gear Failed, but not how you think…

In a recent video I had a soft shackle fail, and I had countless people tell me what I did wrong to cause it, and apparently there are even quite a few posts around the interwebs breaking down how I did it wrong and what caused the failure (even though I haven’t been able to find any of these posts). There are many different arguments about what happened, but the one thing they have in common, is that all of them are wrong. Now I’m not saying that I didn’t use the shackle incorrectly, but I am saying that the design of the shackle itself is the reason it failed in the configuration that it it did, when the other ones held.
I bought this particular soft shackle off of Amazon who knows how many years ago, and I have no idea what brand it is, and in this video I compare it to one of my @YankumRopes shackles to show the difference
in how they are constructed and what I believe caused the failure.
