Ever attempt to change a heads'l while under way? One hand for the boat and the other to handle the shackle, the clevis pin, and the jib tack all at once. How do you screw in that pin with only one hand?
This replacement for you standard screw pin shackle is expensive for good reason. It weighs only 2 oz but at 3300 pounds its breaking strength greater than the weight of a C-22. It is totally secure, yet it can be opened without any tools.
And it will pay for itself in the long run. Install the removable bottom clevis pin permanently to the stem fitting. The shackle can be opened and closed without any chance of losing it overboard. You never have to buy a replacement again! Suitable for the Catalina 22, Catalina 22 Sport, Capri-22, Catalina 25, and Catalina 250.
