Tylaska dogbone design features a unique patented tapered profile with a grooved texture that grabs onto the line and prevents slippage without creating any snagging issues.
Dog bones have a rich history, appearing first as wooden pegs on tall ships.
Modern Dogbones have been re-engineered using state of the art materials and manufacturing techniques to become a handy, versatile piece of running rigging kit.
Modern Dogbones are lightweight but strong metal rods tapered from the ends into the middle.
The tapered section makes them look like a bone, hence the nickname dogbone.
The middle section can be attached to the end of a line and used like a button or toggle to make a connection to another line, grommet or deck fitting.
Dogbones are useful for attaching the halyard to the headboard - maximises sail height without the added length of a conventional shackle.
Dogbones also work well for sheets and outhauls, secure connecting rod for soft loops when attaching blocks to deck fittings and numerous other rigging applications.
Dogbones don't jam under tension and can therefore be quickly attached and detached.
