ASANO in Use: Auto Shackle Type Ⅲ




ASANO products actively used on the world’s oceans

ASANO’s stainless steel fishing gear and ship equipment have been manufactured since 1977, and they are now used and valued by customers in Japan as well as in the U.S., Norway, Spain, and Australia to name a few countries. The Auto Shackle Type Ⅲ is one of them.


Key Features of Auto Shackle

Auto shackles have been developed to be used to connect a net and rings (purse rings) at the bottom of the net for purse seine fishing. Auto shackles have been developed to provide two functions that are usually conflicting: “secure rigging” and “quick release”. The simple mechanism of a gate that can easily be opened by inserting a sharp tool such as a spike into the hole in the body has gained a good reputation. This is a long selling product that has been on the market for over 20 years. They come in a variety of types such as types II, IIS, and , and are used in a range of different fields.


Compliments from a user in Greenland

We received a short movie with compliments “THIS IS A FABULOUS GREAT PRODUCT” from our customer in Greenland.  As the movie shows, the Auto Shackle Type Ⅲ made of special stainless steel with excellent seawater resistance are used for their purse seine fishing under the harsh conditions in the north of the sea.
