RaceLite Halyard Shackles are very popular with dinghy sailors who use them with wire halyards, because they have a hole in the top for connecting wire halyards with swaged balls. Instead of cotter pins, they have captive twist-locking pins with a tension spring on the pin.
They are available in both standard and junior sizes. The RL382AWL has an inside length of 7/8 in 22mm), inside width of 9/16 in (14mm), and a 3/16 in (5mm) pin diameter.
