Speedlink is the new trigger snap shackle dedicated to spinnaker operations on racing boats while offering an excellent weight to performance ratio.
Forged from High Resistance (H.R.) 17.4 Ph Alloy Stainless Steel, which can bear outstanding working and breaking loads for a wide range of weight that it can bare. It also has maximum corrosion resistance and superior durability, along with this highest quality steel.
Make the right choice!
This Speedlink is the new trigger snap shackle dedicated to spinnaker operations on racing boats and offering an excellent weight / performance ratio.
Ultra Lightweight: developed by using finite element analysis software, Speedlink has an optimised design thanks to its shape, cut-outs and ribs. Its make it extremely design and gives its one of the best strength/weight ratios on the market.
Easy Opening: Opening under load, whether manually or using release fid, is easy and effortless thanks to the generous passage diameter and its optimised slopes.
No Accidental Opening: The special shape of the latch reduces inertia and avoids unintentional opening, especially under impact.
Sturdy: Speedlink is forged in HR stainless steel and can bear outstanding working and breaking loads for a minimum weight.
Modern New Design: its ultra-technical lines avoid excessive rope wear and prevent adjacent lines from jamming.
Speedlink has an optimised design thanks to its shape, cut-outs and ribs.
Has one of the best strength/weight ratios on the market today.
Easy opening under load, whether manually or while using a release fid (sold separately).
Will not open accidentally thanks to the special shape of the latch which reduces inertia especially under impact.
Ultra-technical lines avoid excessive rope wear and prevent adjacent lines from jamming.
Only one line should be attached to the eye at a time.

Breaking load is the static load at which total failure, by rupture or deformation, occurs.
Safe Working Load is the maximum static load the product can endure without deforming. Prudence dictates not exceeding 80% of the functional limit.

Widely recognized for their first-rate materials, design and workmanship, Wichard products are highly documented, ISO 9001 certified, and backed by a 5-year warranty.
All Wichard hooks are hot forged and passivated, providing exceptional reliability, eliminating internal structural defects and protecting against oxidation.
Wichard's HR, high resistance, 17.4 PH alloy is one of the strongest available in marine hardware. This slightly magnetic alloy is used in their top-end products.
Because Wichard hooks are forged, when they are stressed to their limits they will show signs of deformation first and will never break suddenly.
Only forging creates a superior steel product, by increasing its elasticity and maximizing the steel's internal strength.
Most marine hardware can be divided into two distinct groups these days.
Cheap junk made with little, if any, thought to the impact its production has on the environment or the workers involved - or high quality gear made from materials designed to last, by companies that care.
We prefer to carry the latter.
Plastic and nylon parts are durable for a while and they satisfy price sensitive shoppers. Their production, however, creates numerous toxins, and eventually enough sunshine or stress will cause them to break.
Chrome, nickel, and zinc plating can protect metal surfaces for years, but their initial production, especially in third-world countries can cause devastating harm.
Painted parts are effective for a while, but paint production is usually nasty, and as it chips and goes over the side, paint carries its own poisons along.
At greenboatstuff we choose to carry aluminum, brass, bronze, stainless steel, and occasionally wood hardware.
In an imperfect world we know these choices are not entirely without their faults.
In our opinion, however, they satisfy our criteria for high quality, long lasting products that do the job well while inflicting minimal, if any, harm.
