|Widely recognized for their first-rate materials, design and workmanship, Wichard products are highly documented, ISO 9001 certified, and backed by a 5-year warranty.
All Wichard snap shackles are hot forged and passivated, providing exceptional reliability, eliminating internal structural defects and protecting against oxidation.
Wichard's HR, high resistance, 17.4 PH alloy is one of the strongest available in marine hardware. This slightly magnetic alloy is used in their top-end products.
All Wichard snap hooks are forged, and when stressed to its limits, will show signs of deformation first and will never break suddenly.
Only forging creates a superior steel product, by increasing its elasticity and maximizing the steel's internal strength.
High Resistance Safety Snap Hooks are made of Wichard's HR, high resistance, 17.4 PH alloy, one of the strongest available in marine hardware.
This slightly magnetic alloy is used in Wichard's top-end products.
(Note: the second hole in the Safety Snap increases the structural strength, but has no function in use.)
