Somehow my tether has gone walkabout and I need to replace it. It was about two meters of flat tubing with a large metal safety
shackle at each end. Not a carabiner or snap hook, but a hook with a safety
bar in the center, so that you have to swing the safety bar before the main gate will open.
Havin seen plain 'biners and snap hooks open themselves simply by spinning around a taught line, I only want safety shackles. And can't for the life of me remember what brand mine were.
I know, it sounds impossible, but if you've ever seen it happen, it is a quick trick to learn, flip-flip, and the snap is off the safety line. No thanks, the safety bar doesn't get in the way once your fingers learn it.
What I've found online is this, with Spinlock shackles from apsltd.com . ("Y" tether, and elastic, I'm going to modernize while I'm at it.)
Not that it matters but the safety bars were blue on mine.
Anyone have anything similar to recommend?
