This 5-axis machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum masterpiece provides the perfect connection for soft rigging into a 2.5" receiver hitch. The SSRA ( Soft Shackle Receiver Adapter) from Brennan's Garage provides the safest, most direct, connection to the pin in a common receiver hitch while using soft working radii for all critical points.
Upgrade note: Now including a small translucent PVC zippered pouch with complete kits to help keep things organized. The pouch is large enough to store a spare hitch pin also.
Note: Batch one in this size In stock and ready to ship! The combo deal now includes the updated 7/16 'Amsteel Blue' SK78 soft shackle with a combo tubular nylon and fire hose guard.
-Safe 1.13" working pin diameter for soft shackle load interface. This provides the strongest possible connection to the common 5/8" pin diameter possible in the 2.5 size hitch. There is also a 1/4" radius on each side to provide additional beam strength and to help limit the potential for any crack propagation at the root.
-The large 7/16" 'working' radius on the entrance of the SSRA provides protection for the soft shackle at 90 degrees in any direction without the need for re-rigging.
-Internal 5-axis machined 'reverse bell' provides a safe gentle transition to the working pin from the mouth opening
-Constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum, the SSRA ( 2.5 size ) weights only 1.4lbs. The minimized mass provides increased safety if the hitch pin was to catastrophically fail.
-The short 2.75" working length provides protection for the device as it is almost totally encapsulated by your common receiver hitch length. This greatly decreases the risk of damaging the unit with a rock strike.
-Currently provided in a bare aluminum finish. The bare aluminum allows for simple tactile inspection of all the critical surfaces for damage while providing for an easy repair of any damage found ( with a small fine file or 800grit sandpaper ) A light wax coating is enough to provide long term protection. (I do not recommend storing the device full time in the receiver hitch)
-Leverage limiting. The short length of the SSRA helps minimize leverage on the receiver assembly when pulling off angle.
-The SSRA 2.5 is designed to be used with an independent leg style soft shackle using a maximum of a 5/8" rope diameter. A 7/16" rope diameter generally allows a tubular nylon guard to be used for additional long term chafe protection.
-A soft shackle length of approx 22" ( 11" loop ) seems to work best overall. This allows the soft shackle to be rigged into the device semi-permanently and the noose opened and closed while the SSRA is plugged into the receiver.
