Re: Groove

It looks like a Selden low friction snap shackle. I don't think that groove has a real purpose other than manufacturing and keeping weight down. It's most likely a casted piece. The snap shackle is wide to give a large surface on the inside for smooth operation of a line sliding thorough it. If it's a cast part, the groove minimizes the amount of metal used to reduce weight. It could also be forged, but it would for the most part be the same deal.
