Designed to be spliced directly onto a line without the need for an additional tear drop stainless steel thimble

Nylon moulding around the eye allows the line to be spliced tight to the shackle

HR = High Resistance = Forged from 17.4ph top quality marine grade stainless steel with increased breaking strain compared with standard top quality marine grade stainless steel

Forging not only optimises the stainless steel in terms of strength but also in the ability to yield a little under extreme load before ultimate failure
The moulded thimble also prevents any pin point load on the pin
The Skipper's regular safety rig check should therefore give notice and an opportunity for replacement

The plunger pin design and manufacturing process results in an assembly which will not come apart, even after extended use.

The plunger pin is ergonomically designed to open easily but also features a ring for attaching a release lanyard
