hamma™ Top Opening Snapshackles are a direct copy of the long discontinued universally popular Navtec design.
Top opening snapshackles have a specific design purpose - they are hinged at the top of the shackle head rather than on the side preventing the released arm from snagging on the line or clew you are trying to set free.
Use for sheets, guys and control lines, but not for halyards.
Use a side opening design for halyards
