A strong corrosion resistant shackle that can be installed without tools.
Riggers have turned to Wichard shackles for their legendary quality, beautiful polish and smooth contours. Drop-forged 316L stainless steel construction is a perfect blend of strength and corrosion resistance and ensures that shape remains intact at loads that meet or exceed the deformation point. The Key pin design allows boaters to secure the pin quickly without tools. Available with or without a bar to secure the shackle to a line or pad eye these shackles are great for halyards on smaller boats as well as outhauls and other repeated use applications that benefit from a tool-less installation. At the thumb screw end, the elasticity of the shackle’s body locks the pin’s position into a small indentation and prevents unintended release. The pin is captive to prevent accidental loss.
