Shackles are used in lifting and static systems as removable links to connect (steel) wire rope, chain and other fittings. Screw pin shackles are used mainly for non-permanent applications. Safety bolt shackles are used for long-term or permanent applications or where the load may slide on the pin causing rotation of the pin.
Chain or dee shackles are mainly used on one-leg systems whereas anchor or bow shackles are mainly used on multi-leg systems.
Shackles supplied by Van Beest can be either hot dipped galvanized, electro-galvanized, painted or self coloured, depending on the type of shackle and its application.
Shackles should be inspected before use to ensure that: • all markings are legible; • the body and pin are both identifiable as being of the same size, type and make; • the threads of the pin and the body are undamaged; • never use a safety bolt type shackle without using a securing pin; • the body and the pin are not distorted or unduly worn; • the body and pin are free from nicks, gouges, cracks and corrosion; • shackles may not be heat treated as this may affect their Working Load Limit; • never modify, repair or reshape a shackle by machining, welding, heating or bending as this will affect the Working Load Limit.
