Kong 233.E01 Elastic Tether Double EN 1095 233SETE01KK
Double arm elastic safety tether for improving safety during sailboat racing.
Meeting all World Sailing Offshore Special Regulation requirements for strength, design, and features for sailboat racing, this EN1095, (also published as ISO 12401) Safety Tether features two cast lightweight aluminum double-action safety hooks, built-in stress indicator, and a stainless steel connector with Express sleeve at the chest 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 900 lb. of force triggers the flag).
The boat-end aluminum alloy Kong Tango carabiner 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.
The Kong Harness Express Bar 536100BJ1KK Chest connector hook is a 10 mm diameter asymmetric keylock stainless steel carabiner, with an express sleeve, and molded bar. Has an opening width 17 mm,
The short arm extends to 1 meter, the long arm to 2 meters. Internal elastic retracts both arms when not under load, keeping them out of the way.
High-quality product completely made in Italy.
NOTE: Certified for only one use.
