Many years of design and rigorous testing
created a series of shackles that provide a standard of quality
previously unavailable to the sailing community.
Tylaska shackles were meticulously designed
and optimized using the latest finite element CAD software. The
patented mathematical curvature of the release mechanism allows these
shackles to be easily opened even under tremendous loads. No other snap
shackle on the market today has this capability.
Tylaska T8 Snap Shackles are perfect for
applications requiring high strength and light weight. They have a
breaking strength of 8,000 lbs and weigh only 3.5 ounces in the standard
bail configuration. Ideal for the 30 to 40 foot sailboat.
The standard bail configuration provides
ample room for attaching a line while keeping weight and overall shackle
length to a minimum. Standard bails are ideal for halyards.
