Tylaska SP6 Trigger Style Snap Shackle
Tylaska’s SP snap shackles are a retrofit of the old Sparcraft designed trigger release snap shackles. Made from the same durable 17-4PH stainless as before, the castings are now hipped to create a finished part similar to a forging in strength and metal consistency. While not as capable of high-load releases as the T shackle, the SP shackle is still a high quality and rugged shackle that lives up to the Tylaska name it carries. SP snap shackles offer a larger eye and are a more economic choice when compared with their T shackle counterparts.A - .625in (15.87mm)

Tylaska has revived the old and proven trigger release snap shackle from races of the past.
New molds, closer tolerances and some needed design modifications have allowed the #6 to breath new life and once again sail with the best.
Now called the Tylaska SP6, this is the same shackle that has had its place in every major yachting event since its creation.
This light, strong and reliable shackle has been the solution on boats up to 50 ft.
