MX: halyard shackle by Wichard
MX is a High Resistance halyard shackle fully forged in 17/4 PH stainless steel to take on high loads. MX has been specifically designed to replace terminals on flying sails furlers (i.e halyard block) by providing an outstanding strength / weight ratio and to reduce compression on masts. When luff tension is needed, it can be used:
to replace the halyard block on top swivel
to replace the lower terminal on spool (i.e snap shackle)
Oustanding strength / weight ratio:
Fully forged in High Resistance stainless steel, MX offers one of the best strength / weight ratios on the market. Compared to standard blocks and for the same line diameter, MX offers much higher working and breaking loads as well as optimised dimensions and weight.
A unique design:
Thanks to its unique design, MX can excellently distribute the stresses. Its particular shape avoid undue and excessive rope wear.
Easy to install:
MX requires no specific lashing knowledge. Its installation is as easy as installing a shackle, thanks to its Wichard slef-locking pin.
Reliable and maintenance free:
MX does not include any mechanical parts (i.e: sheave) which can potentially break. Moreover, it does not require any particular maintenance.
