I want to buy the wichard snap shackle and I was wondering which model is the best.

I have heard about the 2673 but the 2675 and 2676 look also good.

Which one should I buy??

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I am using the 2673 which is a quick release shackle. Retails around $60 at West Marine.
I will attach pic of my welded spreader with the modified quick release.

Get the 2673 is the one most recommended ,it's a snap shackle with small rope for quick release. Replace that little rope with strong kite line or even better( Q-Line ).

or a metallic screw, so you just have to push, which will be easier than pulling a line with a ball.
Make sure the shackle can turn and don't touch the harness hook.

...or the screw. it's important to have a system where you'll find the release in every possible position.
