I think it's just a "quick release". I'm familiar with it from my sailing harness and tether/inflatable life jacket. Jerk on the lanyard and you're unattached.

For a hell of a lot less money we use the largest of these clips to lift our 700lb dinghy out

Snap shackles are great, but probably overkill for a dinghy lift attachment. You shouldn’t need the swivel and a simple snap hook should work great.

Snap shackles are great on something like a spinnaker halyard where you may want to release it one-handed even if there is still a little tension on the halyard.

I use snap shackles because releasing the dingy quickly when it's bouncing around could prevent a mishap. A quick tug on each and off I go.


True about the swivel part...which really drives up the cost.


Bought mine from Defender on sale for less than $10 per.

I use a snap shackle to release the davit cable from the stainless ring that brings the three legs of the tender' s lifting lines together. I can remain on the flybridge/boat deck to retrieve the davit cable while freeing the tender to be handled by crew around to the boarding platform and made fast. NOT used in the lift/retrieve process though.
