Boats with 40' to 80' LOA's, including older generation America's Cup boats use Tylaska's Press Lock Senior to trim, release, and re-lead sheets during tight mark roundings. The shackle opens when the two opposing triggers are pressed. The opposing trigger mechanism is ideal for sheets and other applications requiring a fitting small enough to pass through the lead cars and make re-leading a sheet easier. They are also used for halyards, outhauls, and lead changers.
The Sr. has a breaking strength of 20,000 pounds.
