The CR2 is the smallest snap shackle Tylaska produces. Weighing less than 14 grams, the CR2 has an impressive breaking strength of 2,000 lb with a maximum safe working load of 1,000 lb. A fixed bail loop integrated into the body of the shackle allows for for easy attachment to a line or webbing. The firm spring in the plunger pin mechanism provides a high resistance to opening due to shock loads or flogging. Ideal for dingy racing or light air conditions.
Also known as the RSL snap shackle, the CR2 has become a popular choice among parachute container manufacturers for use in the reserve static line system. Given the critical nature of this application, Tylaska has opted to maintain full material traceability on all CR2 snap shackles and, as with all Tylaska snap shackles, proof load 100% of the shackles to maximum safe working load.
