Snap Shackle (fully assembled)

Free 3D printer model Snap Shackle (fully assembled), Balkhubal

Did you 3D print this model?

3D model description

This is a snap shackle (aka quick-release shackle)!

Its purpose is to be able to easily open the shackle even though it is currently under a load. Its designed to be tough, but It's still just plastic: so, it will only survive light to medium loads. Naturally, it’s better to have a metal one, but if you don't have one, then you don't have one :P

In my particular usage, I use a similarly (professionally) designed stainless steel shackle to stow our spinnaker halyard while during the upwind section of a race. However, the boat I'm on right now didn't have one... so I made one :)
