This revolutionary new shackle from Tylaska replaces the age-old knot! Unlike a conventional knot, the Tylaska Spool Shackle™ will not jam up, and it remains easy to fasten and unfasten, even after loading up to the tensile strength of the line.
The S-Series Tylaska Spool Shackle™ is machined from high-strength aluminum and has an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. The key is that the line itself supplies the strength while the shackle redirects the force. The ease of unfastening after loading is equally amazing. Based upon the concept of "breaking the back" of a bowline knot, the line can be rolled back and taken off even after it becomes "stiff as a wire" from tension.
