What is a Tii-on? 
Tii-on products are quickly becoming the go to choice for many hardware fittings. So, in the short article on our website we will list a few of our favourite products, as well as explain when and why Tii-ons should be used.

Tii-on is our brand name for products which require a soft attachment fitting (soft shackle/ rope shackle) or must be spliced or tied onto rope to be used correctly. 

Why use Tii-on products? 

As sailing has progressed through the years we are seeing a bigger demand for stronger, lighter and more performance orientated hardware. So, naturally development took the path of removing the metal attachment points and metal shackles from blocks to reduce the weight and size. But then you are left with the problem of how to attach the product. Rope was the answer.

Rope is much easier to work with for the average sailor than wire. A simple knot can be tied around a block rather than having to bend and crimp a wire. Dyneema® can also be spliced to create continuous lines or loops, resulting in even more attachment options and uses. Splicing rope also removes the chances of snagging as their is no knots, crimps or anything protruding. We also think it looks much cooler!

Now that we have created products designed specifically for attaching via rope or Tii-shackles it has allowed sailors to create much more efficient control systems, which are lighter, stronger and more compact than ever before.
