The CR snap shackle incorporates the extreme strength, outstanding corrosion resistance, and aerospace quality of Tylaska’s high performance racing hardware at a price that the cruiser or casual racer will find appealing. Unlike many plunger-pin snap shackles that are prone to catching on stays, the sleek geometry of the CR shackle has been optimized to reduce the risk of snagging and fouling. The locking hole feature allows the plunger pin to be locked in place using a small line or zip tie. Useful in extreme conditions where snap shackles have been known to release due to severe flogging.
The term stainless steel is used to describe a family of about 200 alloys of steel with remarkable heat and corrosion resistance properties. Its distinguishing characteristic is the high amount of chromium. Stainless steel contains a minimum of 10.5% of chromium that improves its corrosion resistance and strength.
