Equiplite introduced its line of Non-Swiveling, Low-Load (NSM) Connectors to satisfy the needs of the racer/cruiser market that appreciates connectors that are quick and easy to attach and cause less damage than heavier and harder stainless steel shackles. These connectors feature a molded plastic thimble that the sheet splices to instead of the aluminum one found on Equiplite's standard high load model, resulting in weight and cost savings. They are ideal for jib sheets, spinnaker sheets, and lower load halyards (spinnaker, topping lifts, etc.). Use them with covered lines only and make sure your splice fits snuggly.
This connector accepts a maximum line diameter of 1/2 in. (13mm).
