Hiya Dan,
You talking about the tripline on the anchor itself, or the quick release at the kayak end so you can go for a ride behind your big fish?

...Or something else?

I use this from time to time - easy to make and works well. Down side is you need to replace the toggle every 6 months

It is made from a 12mm galv square washer and a wall toggle. Remove the bott from the wall toggle. insert some fencing wire through the the nut, bend it over so ti can't pull back through and put a loop in the other end. Weld a piece of no.8 wire (yes girls and boys the good ol kiwi no.8 wire) to the washer. Bend out the sides of the toggle until you have the desired tension.
Bake for 20 minutes on high :lol: (just kidding about that last bit
