Tylaska Plug Fids

Tylaska Plug Fids

Plug fids allow for remote release of trigger shackles. The fid is pushed into the trigger hole and the tapered rear of the fid allows the trigger to snap closed again and hold the fid in place. A lanyard can then be placed in either of two locations depending upon the desired location of remote release. For side release, the lanyard is attached to the blunt end and can be pulled out either by hand or by winch. For rear release, the lanyard is attached to the tapered end and pulled from behind. The fid pries upon the trigger and stays captive with the shackle. Can also be used with no lanyard and operated as a 'handle' for convenient release. The plug fid is ideal for avoiding the need to crawl out into risky locations or for single-handed or night sailing.

Lanyard not included. Use 3/16" line.
