Tylaska Press Lock Shackle
Tylaska Press Locks feature two opposing triggers that are pressed to open the shackle. Both opposing triggers must be pressed at the same time to open the shackle which safeguards against accidental opening during flogging. Investment cast and then hipped in aerospace 17-4PH stainless, the Press Lock Junior and Senior are held to the same high standards as our snap shackles. Designed to be strong and light, yet provide easy use in those tight mark roundings, they have proven to be up to the task. Their opposing trigger mechanism is ideal for sheets and other applications requiring a fitting small enough to pass through the lead cars to make re-leading a sheet easier.The Press Lock Junior is perfect for boats 24 to 40 feet LOA and has been seen widely on the Farr 40s. The Press Lock Senior also is a tried and true veteran. Commonly found on America‘s Cup boats and maxi boats, these have stood the test of time. These shackles can cover boats from 40 to 80 feet LOA.
