The 15-5 PH alloy, well known in the aerospace industry, provides greater ductility with no sacrifice in tensile strength.
All Ronstan Nicro Snap Shackles share individually X-rayed hooks to insure that there are no unseen casting flaws. The interior of the shackle opening is 5/8 in. (16mm). This model has a swivel bail and the entire item is 3 5/8 in. (92mm) long.
