Shackle guards for spinnaker lines are often called doughnuts.  While these doughnuts have many uses, they are primarily used to protect shackles installed on your spinnaker lines preventing the shackle from jamming into pole end fittings. They can also be used as sail protectors on rails and lifelines, on crosstree spreaders or as trapeze handles.

Available in several sizes in Red, Green or White.
