Hooks & Snaps

Wichard tack hooks and quick release snap shackles can be fully integrated into sails, enabling them to be brought as close to the edge of the deck as possible.

Their well-designed shape facilitates and allows for the optimal fitting of webbing.

Wichard double action safety hooks have a reduced risk of opening accidentally due to the famous torsion spring developed by their engineers.

They can be fitted using just one hand, and release when you press on the rear lever. This product was designed under the stringent requirements of European standard EN362.

The new large mouth double action hook (WD-2456) is a piece of individual protection equipment (IPE) approved for use in industry and is individually stamped with CE0082 and EN36.

Pro Boat also carries a wide variety of carbines by both Kong and Wichard, sail hanks in stainless steel and brass, pelican hooks for guardrail gates and removable standing rigging such as baby stays that can be disconnected when not in use etc.

Snap hooks and boat snaps in stainless steel, brass, bronze and nickel plated bronze. For skiers we carry Kong ski hooks with a quick release lanyard which is an important safety feature.
