JuggerKnot Soft Anchor 1.4 mm

  • They’re Small
    • The volume of bone that is removed with a 3.0mm drill is equivalent to four 1.4mm anchor drill holes4
    • Reduces the amount of native bone removal
    • Allows for multiple points of fixation when repairing soft tissue to bone
    • Smaller diameter drill size reduces the likelihood of intersecting anchor tunnels when placing multiple anchors
  • They’re Strong
    • Strength is equal to or greater than some anchors two or three times larger1
    • High pullout strength ranging from 20-120 lbs., depending on size of anchor2,3
  • They’re All-Suture
    • Soft anchor deployment system with no rigid component
    • Eliminates the possibility of rigid material loose bodies in the joint
    • Allows blood to repair site


  • Most commonly utilized for soft tissue to bone fixation in the shoulder
  • Designed with a #5 polyester sleeve and loaded with a #1 MaxBraid suture
  • 54 lbs. anchor pullout strength in cortical bone2
  • Unique instrumentation includes:
    • Curved–23° curvature allowing the ability to drill a hole perpendicular to bone surface at anchor site
    • Percutaneous–Allows anchor to be inserted into the skin through a 2.4mm diameter guide, minimizing tissue trauma
    • Centering Sleeve–Assists with consistent anchor placement via the curved guide by centering anchor in the drill hole
