Looking to safeguard your soft shackles during your off-road expeditions? Look no further than the MAXTRAX Shackle Shield. Engineered to provide an extra layer of defense, this innovative accessory slides snugly over your MAXTRAX Core and Fuse shackles, offering unparalleled protection against abrasions and sharp-edged recovery points. Say goodbye to premature wear and tear on your soft shackles and hello to enhanced safety on the trails.

Traditional recovery points, including those integrated into bullbars, often sport a 90-degree edge, posing a risk to delicate rope fibers during recoveries. But fear not! The MAXTRAX Shackle Shield steps in to mitigate these risks. Crafted to fit any soft shackle brand on the market, it can be effortlessly retrofitted to ropes with a diameter of up to 14mm (excluding woven cover sheaths), ensuring compatibility and versatility in every recovery scenario.

What sets the MAXTRAX Shackle Shield apart is its commitment to lightweight, metal-free recovery solutions. Constructed from thermoplastic polyurethane, this shield strikes the perfect balance between flexibility and strength, safeguarding your soft shackle fibers without adding unnecessary bulk to your gear setup. Plus, its innovative "U" shaped design minimizes tight radius contraction under load, further extending the lifespan of your soft shackles.

Available in three convenient packaging options, including Twin packs in vibrant Safety Orange or sleek Black, as well as a Quad pack featuring a mix of both colors, the MAXTRAX Shackle Shield ensures you're prepared for any recovery scenario that comes your way. Whether you're a seasoned off-roader or a weekend warrior, this essential accessory is a must-have addition to your recovery arsenal.

Incorporating the MAXTRAX Shackle Shield into your off-road setup not only enhances safety but also aligns seamlessly with the MAXTRAX ethos of simplicity and reliability. By offering easy-to-use solutions that prioritize your well-being on the trails, MAXTRAX continues to set the standard for vehicle recovery systems in the Australian 4WD community.
