Light-weight stainless steel tube shibari ring

 

Incredibly light, yet deceptively strong. We tested one on a load cell. Whilst it started to distort at around 400kg, it held a lot more! The tester only went up to two tons and by this time it was elongating. Whilst this was a one-off test, it seems that you would get plenty of warning, and it would probably be the shape of a paper-clip, before it actually broke and think that would take more than the two tons we threw at it. I don't like surprises if it comes in the form of sudden failures of critical kit, so this ticks the boxes. It is also a lot more forgiving if hit your head on it as I am apt to do :-)

A couple of the reviews mentioned that the welds are visible. It's a fair comment as they haven't been polished out completely. That's not to say they are rough or cause any issue, merely that it is not 100% cosmetically. As they said, it is a lot less expensive than those with a perfect finish but do exactly the same job. As I aim to offer good functional products that are affordable to all, so in that spirit, I have reduced the price further.

    No response to my email, product never arrived...checked with post office to make sure it wasn’t being held...

    Light, trustworthy and best price there is

    Posted by Eza on 21st Aug 2018

    I received the steel ring together with a few other things I ordered, and it really was what I expected. It is delightfully light, something that doesn't weigh down your rope bag noticeably (especially when using a heavier hemp).

    It is a generous size, easily put over my head and onto my shoulders (for reference). I trust this ring completely with suspension, especially since it is bought from here. It was also THE cheapest alternative for a steel ring I could find overall.

    My only complaint, which is why I give it four stars instead of five, is that the surface is not polished. Now that's maybe not an issue for most people, it's only an esthetic preference, but I really would've preferred a shiny, clearly polished metal ring. Now it is a bit scuffed and scratched here and there. Had it not been a hollow ring, and therefore very risky (and definitely unadvisable) to change the integrity of the material, I would've changed the exterior in some way, maybe by making it clearly more rough of by polishing it. Now it is in the for me uncharming territory of "in-between".

    But seriously, it's a lovely ring for a price no rigger should be mad about - I totally recommend this ring and I am so glad I added it to my shibari collection!

    Arrived as promised on time, prompt service. Thought it may bit a weak, however it certainly isn't, does the job well. So very pleased.

    alley cat ring

    It is strong but it won't give you a black eye if you bump in to it. I would not use if I was doing construction, but it works in the bedroom.

    Ok, but not great

    Posted by T on 14th Oct 2016

    The surface was not smooth and you cant feel where they put the ends together. Feels cheap, but it was cheap, so I guess I got what I paid for. It still holds the weight, I tested it so I can still use it. Also the ring was dirty when I got it so I had to clean it.

    Good value for money, but...

    Posted by Katie on 6th Oct 2016

    I think this ring is rather cheap compared to many other of it's kind. However, I wasn't very impressed with the finish. Not as smooth as I hoped for. I would rather have paid a little more and gotten something a little better.
    But I do think you get what you pay for.

    Incredibly light

    Posted by Emmet on 29th Sep 2015

    Great ring, very light. If it hits you in the head, which happens the best of us, you won't be too stressed.

    Quick postage and good customer service
