Gin Soft Shackle v2 video (showing optional elastic, not included)

Below is a video with instructions of how to fit the Gin Soft Shackle. Gin Gliders recommends using ripstop sticky tape (not included) around the ends of the webbing to prevent rotation, however we aren't keen on using sticky tape so recommend using either a suitable neoprene cover, rubber bands and/or O-rings instead (see the Related Products tab).
