New ISAF Compliant Tethers Feature An Advance Ultralight ProSnap Hook
Wichard has just introduced a new range of ISAF compliant Proline sailing safety tethers. Uniquely easy to use and loaded with safety features, these tethers are designed to create a new level of on-deck security for offshore and coastal sailors alike.
The lightest and most compact tethers available, the full Proline range features Wichard’s sophisticated new ProSnap safety hook. Forged from superior Wichard aluminum and complimented with carbon fiber, the ProSnap hook is rustproof and very light weight. A double action design, it uses an exclusive V-nose shaped hook that opens extremely wide to allow for quick one-handed connection and release. This hook also features the newly patented ErgoLockSystem latching system that snaps securely into position and offers a lock and overload indicator to confirm it is latched and being properly used.
Highly versatile, Proline tethers also offer the user the unique ability to change out the tether hook and webbing loop configurations using Wichard’s exclusive EcoLogic hook and SmartLoop technology. These features allow the user to simply add or remove additional webbing bands and hooks to either end of the webbing tether as needed. With this you can quickly turn a single tether into a double or simply replace worn webbing with an existing ProSnap hook.
Available in 4 models, Proline tethers are available in multiple hook and tether configurations using both elastic webbing, for people over 110 lbs., or flat webbing, for lighter weight sailors. The retail prices start at $ 249.90. For more information, visit marine.wichard.com.
