The pin can easily be opened by a single half turn, but remains captive within the body of the shackle and cannot be lost. The bar allows the line, thimble or grommet to remain attached to the shackle.
Wichard products are highly documented, ISO 9001 certified, and backed by a 5-year warranty. All Wichard shackles are hot forged and passivated, providing exceptional reliability, eliminating internal structural defects and protecting against oxidation.
• This extremely strong HR shackle is recommended for mainsail halyards
