This clip is much better than the snap shackles that come with some Optis. First, it easily comes off when under load, which is important when on a tow from a coach boat. Second, snap shackles have a little spur on them that can dig into your finger, and cut you. Not a good thing when you're trying to focus on racing. This clip is also very small, and saves weight, but strong enough for an Opti mainsheet. I always take my own mainsheet kit when I travel to regattas, in part so I can have this clip on my charter boat.
