I have an identical system, with the same shakel and it works perfectly. The only diference is that i don´t have the security system attached on the shakle.

Looks like a clean system. Have you used this system for very long? If so, have you had any problems with it like accidental pulling of the release pin on the shackle? That is one potential problem area that comes to mind but perhaps the use experience will prove otherwise. It looks like the shackle is rigged upsidedown however for more reliable releasing and you may want to invert it. Dumb question...this is a photograph, correct? It almost looks like some very high end artwork. Great image in either case!

Nice graphic. This shakel under extreme load doesn' open! I tried hanging on the roof. No way. It it too hard
