Schaefer's snap shackles are designed for maximum strength with smooth, jam-free operation. Their enlarged throat and hinge area handles shear and twisting movements effectively. The smooth shackle arc prevents jamming against pad eyes or sail grommets to permit easy attachment and release. Sure-release action results from a positive plunger pin with shear-proof pulling ring and accurately aligned deep-slot hinged design.
Snap shackles are designed to allow quick release of loads when the pin is pulled. While this is a convenience for many applications involving spinnakers and sheets, there is a danger that misuse or misapplication could result in damage to equipment or personal injury.
