Snap Shackles

Investment cast 15-5 PH stainless alloy for high strength-to-weightratio. Highly polished finish for outstanding corrosionresistance. Pull pins have heavy-duty springs to resist accidentalopening. Several bail configurations suit all applications on board.
  • Standard S-Bail (S) - Standard compact swivel. For halyards and sheets
  • Large Bail (FR) - Large swivel. For spinnaker sheets and guys
  • Tack Bail (P) - Swivel shackle with removable pin. For jib and staysail tacks
NOTE: Functional load is the point at which snap shackles distort beyond usability but before they break.Use 50% of this value, at most, for working load.
