Tylaska Marine & Aerospace is located in Mystic, Connecticut, USA.
The original Tylaska shackle evolved from a need to build a quick
release mechanism for detaching towed gliders from behind power boats.
Local sailors saw the crossover potential and the design quickly
transformed into its present configuration now a benchmark in the
sailing industry. Over the years, several other products followed to
complement the initial snap shackle. Tylaska is one of the last
manufacturers making all their products and components in the USA.
Unlike many other manufacturers, Tylaska pursues a different product
mission. Instead of looking for ways to cut corners and skimp on
Tylaska shackles are not the least expensive, but they are quite
possibly the best and have become the industry standard. Overbuilt for
sailing applications, we rely on their products for security and peace
of mind where failure is not an option.
