Wichard Forged SS Universal Swivel Trigger Snap Shackles

Forged stainless steel universal swivel trigger snap shackle.

Wichard Speedlink was developed using finite element analysis software and has an optimised design. Its shape, cut-outs and ribs make it extremely light and give it one of the best strength/ weight ratios on the market.

Speedlink's ultra-technical lines make it one of the most modern and efficient snap shackles available.
  • The special load-bearing surface of the swivel eye avoids excessive rope wear.
  • Its overall design prevents adjacent lines from jamming.
  • Easy opening: opening under load, by using the release fid (see below), is easy and effortless thanks to the generous passage diameter and its optimised slopes.
  • Secure locking: the special shape of the latch reduces inertia and avoids unintentional opening, especially under impact, while the distribution of stresses limits the effort needed to open it under load.
Speedlink is forged in HR stainless steel and can bear exceptional working and breaking loads for a minimum weight.
