here some pics of what can happen if you use the wrong shackle with the wrong setup.
This shackle opens on metal only.

Great post Tody! We have been talking about this for a long time but clear, closeup photos tell it very well. Great idea.

Right! This quick release can work well only on an adequate size steel ring

i had problems with this type of quick release because if there's to much tension on it it wont open. I think the wichard 2673 is much safer...
