    • Splice the halyard directly onto the snap shackle (without using a thimble)

    • Swivel eye allows free rotation of the snap shackle
    • The plunger pin is set captive into the hook and cannot become detached
    • Excellent working and breaking loads
    • Easy to open by pulling the plunger pin (possiblity to attach a lanyard)
    • Use for applications requiring free rotation of the snap shackle (for a better sail orientation)

    Important Note: These shackles are designed to have lines spliced onto them. Do not use knots as the load will be shifted to top of thimble and will damage plastic
