Sister clips. Used for joining two lines or a line to a sail for example (sheet or halyard). Easy release when not under pressure. Have strength limitations compared to a shackle. Can shake apart if sail is allowed to flap a lot.

I’ve always known them as Brummel hooks and their primary use was for quickly joining signal flags to flag halyards.

Inglefield/Brummel/Sister clips (3 names for them) I use small ones to attach flags & burgees to flag halyards.

We used Brummel hooks to attach the spinnaker sheets on Blue Jays.
