Double arms elastic safety tether for improving the safety during sailboat racing. Meeting all ISAF (International Sailing Federation) requirements for strength, design and features for sailboat racing, these safety tethers incorporate two lightweight aluminum double-action safety hooks, built-in stress indicator and welded O-ring for improved security offshore, whether racing or cruising. The stress indicator features a bright overload flag that is exposed when the tether is stressed to the point of needing replacement (about 900lb. of force triggers the flag).
The boat-end aluminum safety hooks have an easy-to-use double-action gate that automatically locks closed, so it won’t accidentally release from attachment points. Yet, it’s extremely easy to open in one ergonomic movement without pinching your hands. Internal elastic retracts when not under load, staying out of the way. Nonmagnetic, stainless-steel snap shackle at chest releases from the harness under load.
High quality product completely made in Italy.
At a great price I got the Kong Double Tether. Exceptionally well made tether using only premium grade materials. Seems to be up to the task and will provide a great sense of extra security in rough seas and especially for those pitch black solo watches. Though I'm certain it will perform well, I still hope I'll never need to test it and it will still be the best money I ever spent on something I really never used.
