I have tried other panic snaps before and these are the only ones that seem to work for my application. I attach paracord to them as get-back-whips or horse leads. The hourglass shape at the attachment point holds the paracord cover knot in place and does not let it slide off. The inside dimension of this snap is such that it will not slip off most brake or shift levers on motorcycles. In addition, the smooth curves around the clasp and the curve of the release make this snap visually appealing and more functional than other more boxy panic snaps.
