XTremaloop is a quick softline link where speed of connection is matched by improved safety and ease of handling in heavy duty environments. No hardware is needed for the XTremaloop connection enabling single hand handling. It uses a simple knot/eye connection. Where a shackle is used, there is no need to open the shackle, the XTremaloop feeds through any smooth strongpoint to complete the connection.
The XTremaloop connection is made from a twelve-strand HMPE (High Modulus Polyethylene) rope. It has an unmatched weight-to-strength ratio. Compared to a steel wire sling of the same length and capacity, it will match the breaking strength at only 15% of the weight.
XTremaloop can be used in, for example, surface and deep mining operations including tow lines and winch lines or almost any man-handled wire rope application where reduced weight and speed of connection will be of benefit.
