Re: Tool to open lifeline gates

My 1966 vintage Pearson has shackles like that where the lifelines terminate at the pushpit and pulpit and also at a midship gate. They work fine. If you need a tool to open them they may have been crushed somewhere along the line. Just use a screwdriver or whatever works to spread the cheeks a bit.
