Staloop can be produced in stainless steel or 3D printed titanium

Ben Carne and Steve Neil first developed the Staloop product as a concept on paper around five years’ ago.

Ben, from Riggers-uk and Steve from Fibre Fusion have now carried out extensive testing and produced the product in stainless steel and 3D printed titanium.

They are now hoping to move the project forward after receiving much positive feedback.

Staloop can be produced in a variety of sizes from 3mm suitable for dinghies to larger sizes for cruising yachts.

The device connects modern fibres to any substrate such as Dyneema products to masts and can also be produced with different end terminals or a simple hook.

“The benefits surrounding the Staloop are it is of a one-piece construction which is easy to use,” explained Ben. “It’s lighter than other products on the market while adhering to the necessary break loads.”

The product works by passing a spliced eye through the Staloop aperture, over the working end, then locating it into the working bearing surface past the retaining nipple.

The product can also be used in other industries from camping to offshore heavy lifting.

Riggers-uk was founded by David Carne in 1979.
