The T bar (or bunny ears) is what you usually put the tack rings onto at the gooseneck
We call them bullhorns on my boat.
The photo at the start of this thread, they look alot like rams horns.

the soft shackle is very simple, undo shackle and put through the reef ring, do it up and leave it for when reqd, its a good loop to assist pulling sail down as well, , i think i used the marlow 8mm , its nice to handle and very strong, with a good slippery feel, no chafe seen as yet, i also used one for top main sheet block onto s/s loop on the boom, certainly nicer than s/s shackle to s/s, gybes are a lot quieter and no creaking when boom swings at anchor

Surely a simple loop of line through the tack (ring) would suffice. Simple to tie a couple of knots to make a loop of the right size.
Thats largely what I did except I spliced them into a loop so they can't fall off.
