Wichard's Fixed Snap Shackle has a fixed head, rather than a swivel head, and an easy-opening captive plunger pin. This model is hot drop forged from high resistant (HR) stainless steel. It has an interior shackle opening diameter of 13/32 in (10mm) and is 2 in (51mm) in total length. A forged snap shackle will deform long before breaking. It will not burst or break suddenly. This is a guarantee for safety.
Made in France, Wichard's shackles are a staple of famed French offshore and solo sailors.
