Extremely Fast & Versitile Suspension Points

Demonstration of SlingSlings are gaining acceptance as the perfect solution for creating strong, temporary rigging points for kinbaku and shibari suspensions. Not only are they ideal for slipping through narrow gaps, a sling will also allow you fix to positions otherwise unsuitable for anchor points made from rope.

There are primarily two kinds of slings on the market; Nylon Slings and Dyneema Slings. While Dyneema is a stronger material, Nylon Slings withstand looping and twists considerably more than their Dyneema counterparts making them far more versatile and reliable in scenarios more akin to creating suspensions points for shibari and kinbaku.

As part of our selection process we’ve opted for a physically wider sling, ensuring that it will provide a greater safety margin. This wider material also means that an anchor point will be slightly more stable.

In case you haven't used a sling before, do pay attention to the diagram below, as it is very easy to compromise the strength of your sling if you use it incorrectly.

Basically you want to avoid creating any kind of knot in the sling itself and where possible have the sling remain flat at all times. This means positioning so that you avoid any twists. The first two options in the diagram below are the two best choices when creating supspension points.

We've also created a short list of key points to help keep your shibari and kinbaku safe!

IMPORTANT POINT TO CONSIDER WITH SLINGS

- Before using the sling ensure you inspect it closely for any signs of wear or damage
- Marking the sling with any pen or liquid is not advised as this can cause the sling to deteriorate
- You should not alter the sling in anyway
- Avoid exposing the sling to direct sunlight for prolonged periods (UV rays will cause the Nylon to parish)
- Do not run the sling over sharp edges
- Keep the sling away from any corrosive substances
- Knotting the sling will reduce it’s strength and can cause damage to the sling
- Discard the sling immediately should you notice any wear or damage
- Do not sow or attempt to repair the sling if it becomes damaged or worn

Our Selection of Slings

We've selected slings in two lengths that we feel will be most useful to riggers. 60cm, available in black, and 120cm in a grey and black option. Doubled back upon themselves these slings will give you up to 30cms and up to 60cms of play. The 120cm option will also allow riggers to loop around larger beams without difficulty.
