Tylaska Shackles

Unlike many other manufacturers, Tylaska pursues a different product mission. Instead of looking for ways to cut corners and skimp on quality, Tylaska shackles are aimed to be the best possible product made based upon physics and not economics. Many extra and exotic processes are used differentiating the Tylaska shackle from the normal piece of hardware. 

First, every structural part is run through a procedure called hipping (high isostatic pressurization), which is a process normally only reserved for spacecraft and critical aerospace parts. This consists of heating the component to near melting point in a vessel containing inert gas. The gas is then pressurized and the softened component is squeezed and compressed to seal and collapse any underlying void or imperfection. 

Next, heat treating is done in vacuum furnace to eliminate any chance of contamination. Several testing processes are implemented such as zyglo and magnifluxs to identify any microscopic surface flaws or cracks that could go unseen by the unaided eye. 

Then, each and every snap shackle is tension pulled to 50% of its breaking strength and also released under load. This is not a random statistical process, every single snap shackle is pull tested and verified as to holding the stated working load. 

The result is a shackle that could pass as a piece of jewelry and exceeded the specifications for a part used in the space shuttle. Tylaska shackles are not the least expensive, but they are quite possibly the best. Some people may call it overkill but we call it security and peace of mind for applications where failure is not an option.
