What do you think about the new Wichard shackles?
I haven't used those, but I don't think they are suited better for our purposes.

It seems they may be, even more than the other wichards, prone to problems with sand.

Since they don't have an option to attach a line it might also get even more tricky to eject.

See this picture for more details:

Release mechanism at 0:10 and 1:30:
