I-Bone – Dogbone connector
The I-Bone or T-bone is a “dogbone” link. The I-Bone is used as a substitute for a textile shackle or a snap shackle, used to link the mainsail to the halyard. The Dogbone’s main advantage is its reliability. It can bear heavier loads than a textile shackle or a halyard shackle, and is quick and easy to fit.
Indeed, the I-Bone 8+ offers several advantages:• Robustness: The reverse geometry design of the I-Bone (thick in its middle and thin at its ends) makes it more resistant than other Dogbones on the market. Its high-grade aluminium guarantees its robustness.• Light weight: the Ino-Rope Dogbone is the lightest model on the market thanks to its specific geometry.• Robustness: thanks to its marine anti-corrosive anodised aluminium.• Safety: the Dogbone is perforated in order to be secured by a lashing.

The I-Bone is also available in stainless steel or titanium (on request) for higher breaking loads.
