Slackline Split Setup 5mm single
The first Real Soft Slackline Split System
No metal parts! Locking Soft Shackle for maximum safety!
Split Setup to connect and interconnect multiple Slackline Main and and Backup Webbings (with sewn loops) together.
Split Setup consists of two 5mm Button Knot Soft Shackles -
one with 22cm and one with 29cm open length.
The longer one is used to connect the mainline in a figure eight shape.
The second one is used to connect the backup and interconnect the main and backup line.
The Backup Soft Shackle comes with a locking cord to prevent unwanted opening when not under tension.
For the 22cm BackUp Soft Shackle, you can choose between
Advantages of Soft Shackle Split Setup:
- reduced risk or injury with no metal in the system
- strong and lightweight
- easy to assemble
- works with all kind of Backup Extenders
- flexible - if not used for Split Setup, all Soft Shackles can be used in a wide range of applications
- increased safety in case of a Main Line failure - just one section will fail, the rest of the system stays redundant, minimizing height of a possible backup fall.
- flexibility with your webbing - share webbings with your friends for bigger projects, carry only what you need
- carry your webbing in separate backpacks

Add. Information about Backup
If you use only one Split Connection you can adjust the Backup length as usual from the anchor points.
If you use two or more Split Connections you will need for the section between two Split Connections a Backup longer than your MainLine.
How long does the Backup has to be?
The length of the Backup section depends on
- the type (stretch) of the webbing
- length of the webbing
- the tension in the system
- which size you want the Backup loops to be.
As an average tension used in highline scenarios we suggest to work with 6kN. For higher or lower tension adjust accordingly.
Here an example:
Let`s say you have a 50m Section of a webbing and you know it has a stretch of 5% at 6kN.
That means your MainLine webbing will elongate by 5% or in this case 2,5m.
Then you may add 2-3m of extra length to get decent Backup loops. All in all, the Backup needs to be about 5m longer.
There are several options now.
- Get a Backup webbing in the desired length.
Disadvantage is clearly that you cannot change the webbings the other way around and therefore the system becomes less flexible. Also, you might not get the webbings in the exact length you need.
- Extend your webbing
Therefore you can use a Backup Extender like the 6mm Spliced Dyneema Extender we offer in our shop. Simply connect the Extender on one side to the sewn loop of your webbing by girth hitching it and attach it to the Backup Soft Shackle of your Split Connection on the other side.
Any other suitable Extender, like another piece of sewn webbing, may be used.
This will give you the most flexibility for your system. Keep all webbings in the same lengths and adjust only the Extender.
Note: You can connect more Dyneema Extenders together by girth hitching them.
