- Mar 7 2:06 PMA note on Shackles. Do not Screw around! Get the Trigger release shackle
There are less expensive shackles for sure, but saving $50-$60-or even
$100 bucks means nothing when you cannot release your self from the
kite. Weather you get them from me or not is irrelevant! Just get one.
Shackles with Pins become increasingly difficult to open as the load
goes up and the friction builds on the pin.
The Tylaska will release under huge load very easily as the trigger is
not influenced by the load on the shackle.
Moral- Don't try to save shekels when buying a shackle, If the pin gets
stuck you are out of luck.
In safety, trying to save a nickel may mean a trip to the

the loop itself too small to hook to the harness, & use a good snap
shackle to connect it instead. That way you can nearly always get out
when you need to.
