Kitesurfing Snap-Shackle Options
by: Jakob Jelling

One of the kitesurfing gear accessories that you will definitely need to have is a snap-shackle. There are a number of kitesurfing snap-shackle options that are available for sale in the market. Which one of the many kitesurfing snap-shackle options you should select is up to you, but this article will provide you some guidance about several kitesurfing snap-shackle options.

Before we discuss some of the kitesurfing snap-shackle options, we need to explain what snap-shackle is. The snap-shackle is a kitesurfing gadget that allows you to release it with a trigger, or pin, under severe loads. In most cases it is made of stainless steel. You will be able to purchase various kitesurfing snap-shackle options at many water supply or sport stores.

When putting one of the kitesurfing snap-shackle options into operation, you will always need to hang-test the release of the shackle. This is very important for your safety. The snap-shackle can be attached to the end of the trim rope, or connected straight to the spreader bar. Any one of the kitesurfing snap-shackle options should let go with minimal attempt when under severe load. The pin-release kitesurfing snap-shackle options can be used but are somewhat more expensive, however.

Some of the best kitesurfing snap-shackle options are the lever-release snap-shackles. These kitesurfing snap-shackle options release from the lever easily without difficulty and without any problems. Regardless of the weight placed on the kite lines, these kitesurfing snap-shackle options are still easily released, letting you loose from the kite.

The pin release kitesurfing snap-shackle options release using a pin. However, the pin can cause problems when the weight increases. Additional resistance on the pin from the weight can make it very hard to release from the kite. The gate can also cause problems, since it can get caught on spreader bars when released in some specific position. If you decided to use one of the pin release kitesurfing snap-shackle options, you will need to make sure that you are using a metal on metal attachment and a steel ring. The pin release kitesurfing snap-shackle options are somewhat cheaper then lever-release kitesurfing snap-shackle options.
