Aluminum Plug Fid for Trigger Shackle by Tylaska > T8, T12, T20, or T30 Sizes
- These Tylaska plug fids allow for remote release of trigger shackles, even when they are under heavy loads.
Model #'s PF8, PF12, PF20, or PF30.
The fid is pushed into the trigger hole and the tapered rear of the fid allows the trigger to snap closed again and hold the fid in place.
A lanyard can then be placed in either of two locations depending upon the desired location of remote release.
For side release, the lanyard is attached to the blunt end and can be pulled out either by hand or by winch.
For rear release, the lanyard is attached to the tapered end and pulled from behind.
The fid pries upon the trigger and stays captive with the shackle.
Fids can also be used with no lanyard and operated as a 'handle' for convenient release.
The plug fid is ideal for avoiding the need to crawl out into risky locations or for single-handed or night sailing.
Tylaska hi-tech fids are machined from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum and knurled for a more secure grip.
Strong, lightweight, and corrosion-resistant, these will be the last fids you ever need to buy.
Designed for Tylaska shackles, these classic fids also fit many other brands.
Available in several sizes.
Please choose the fid you need from the drop-down menu above the product description.

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.com 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.
