    Hi there πŸ™‚

    My english isnt the best, so please bare with me πŸ˜€
    I just wanted to ask what the name of these kind of shackles is:
    The ones right here

    In order to google them and purchase some of them.
    Given thats possible of course.

    I like the concept of the build in padlocks very much
    But ive never seen them anywhere else than on your site.
    Do you have any info somewhere on your site showing where you buy your gear from?
    Maybe im just too blind to find it ^^’

    Could you help me with this one please? <3

    I might be wrong, but the cuffs and the collar look like they’re from SM Factory. I love the simplicity of the design of these as well, with the built-in padlocks and the removable ring. Here’s the link to the website: https://www.sm-factory.com/ Is this collar a 30mm or 40mm?

    Speaking of gear, I LOVE the beautiful range of rainbow nylon rope you use on RE. I’ve read somewhere that you buy the rope from rainbowrope.com; the website I come across only features ads, and I’m not sure if I’m in the right place? Is there another link to the website? I’d love to buy a bit of that kind of rope myself.

    Thank you! πŸ™‚

    Hmmm, you are right, looks like Rainbow Rope has closed down. No activity on their twitter feed since 2013, and the website is dead. That’s a shame, they were definitely the best suppliers of colourful rope.

    In reply to the original poster, the shackles are from https://www.sm-factory.com
    He has a queueing system to be able to order them now as he’s semi-retired, they are all produced by hand to your exact measurements.

    I think our regular cuffs and collars are the 30 mm, we have one set of 40 mm but don’t use it very often as I think the more petite set looks better on girls.

    Cheers, Hywel

    Ohhh that is such a shame! I was hoping to buy some of the beautiful raspberry rope. Are there any other suppliers of colourful nylon rope that you would recommend?

    Cheers,

    Sadly not, all the coloured rope I have came from them.

    If you find a decent supplier, let me know!

    Will do! Can you please remind me the “specifics” of the type of rope you use? From what I remember, you normally use rope that is 6mm in diameter. Is it classified as braided nylon? Any particular type of braiding? I think it’s unlikely that I’ll find exotic colours like raspberry or mint or gold or silver. Also, do you know of any other bondage sites that use coloured nylon? I’ll do my best to find similar rope.

    Also, what’s the length of your longest nylon rope? In meters please, not Hywel arm spans πŸ˜›

    Hi,

    Yes, we favour the 6 mm rope. or 1/4″. The stuff I have from Rainbow rope was described as MFP solid braid rope.

    Lengths… I usually have 3 m, 4.5 m, 6 m, 9 m, 12 m in most of the colours. We have a few longer ropes, maybe one in each colour, for elaborate rope webs etc.. I’d guess they are in the range 15 – 20 m, but they get progressively more and more annoying to tie with. So the 12 m is my longest standard length.

    Cheers, Hywel

    Thank you! One last question, is the blue rope we used for the star harness a 12m or 15-20m?

    Stumbled across this website just based of the description of MFP solid braid rope: http://www.globalfms.com/collections/mfp-rope . Hope it’s useful!

    Hi,

    No idea if it was a 12m or 15-20m, sorry πŸ™ Think it was more likely to be a 12m as I don’t have very much of that blue.

    P.S. just found this, UK prices and they say they’ll ship world-wide. Not quite as nice a range of colours (raspberry in particular is missing) but still pretty good:

    Just ordered a roll of orange, I’ll report back on how it is to tie with etc. once it arrives.

    Cheers, Hywel

    Fantastic! Most of the colours they offer look gorgeous. Shame about the raspberry, and the shipping costs are quite hefty too… at least for someone on a student budget it is. πŸ˜›

    Thank you Hywel! πŸ™‚
