HR = Forged from 17.4ph top quality marine grade stainless steel with a greater break load capacity than standard AISI stainless steel
Forging increases elasticity and maximises internal strength resulting in a superior stainless steel suitable for high load applications
Forged stainless steel does not normally break without warning but deforms before giving way.
The Skipper's regular safety rig check will therefore give notice and an opportunity for replacement

Developed specifically to produce the easiest release trigger shackle available

Wichard have used Ultra Technical Optimised Design to hone the shape, cut out unnecessary material and add strengthening ribs resulting in extremely sleek but ergonomic lines

Wichard Speedlinks combine the benefits of light weight and excellent break load capacity

Features:
Special load bearing surface on the swivel eye to prevent excessive rope wear

Overall optimised design prevents adjacent lines from jamming

Easy to open under load by using the release fid because of the sloping access to the generous fid aperture

Secure locking: the latch is designed to reduce inertia and prevent accidental release especially under impact

Measurement A refers to the maximum usable diameter of the top aperture when closed i.e. the biggest diameter rope or fitting that it will reasonably clip on to

Measurement B refers to the maximum usable diameter of the aperture for the halyard, sheet or control line
N.B. the maximum line diameter for multiple lines can be estimated from B in the list above
