Shackles – Selection Advice

Standard Dee ShacklesStandard Dee Shackles

The standard dimensional format shackle providing high load capacity and compact size. Smaller size bodies are produced from formed stainless steel sheet, whilst larger size bodies are from turned bar and flattened at the ends. Pin heads are available in compact ‘slotted’ or ‘coined’ for finger or tool adjustment. Some pin heads are drilled for the fitting of a securing wire.

Long Dee ShacklesLong Dee Shackles

Similar in features to the standard dee shackles, long dee shackles have a longer internal length clearance for fitting to longer or irregular shaped objects with a greater distance between fixing points.

Wide Dee ShacklesWide Dee Shackles

Similar in features to the standard dee shackles, wide dee shackles have a wider internal width clearance and pin length for fitting to wider, irregular shaped or multiple objects. Their point load B.L. is generally lower than that of standard pin length shackles.

Twisted ShacklesTwisted Shackles

Similar in features to the standard dee shackles, twisted shackles allow fixing of 2 objects with a 90 degree change in their orientation.

Bow ShacklesBow Shackles

Similar in features to the standard dee shackles, bow shackles have a wider internal width clearance for fitting to wider, irregular shaped or multiple objects. They use a standard pin width that doesn’t reduce the point load B.L.

Captive Pin ShacklesCaptive Pin Shackles

These shackles feature a closed eye section at the top to retain the attached line at all times and a captive shackle pin to avoid accidental dropping and loss. The line retaining pin is removable to allow fitting of a pre-spliced eye end, and the shackle pin is engaged by a quick action pin that requires only one quarter turn to tighten or loosen, has an anti-vibration retaining lug and a long lever head for easy one handed engagement.

Lightweight Clevis Pin ShacklesLightweight Clevis Pin Shackles

With lightweight formed bodies, these shackles provide the lightest weight solution for a nominal pin size, where load capacity isn’t as critical. They utilize split pin securing of the shackle pin for reliable fitting without tools.

 

 

 


Special Slotted ShacklesSpecial Slotted Shackles

These shackles have non standard dimensional proportions allowing them to provide the most compact solution in certain specialist applications. Slotted head pins contribute to the efficient minimising of space.

 

 

 


Swivel ShacklesSwivel Shackles

These shackles provide full 360 degree rotation for variable alignment of the two items being linked. They have convenient pin attachment at each end and some models have ball bearings for free rotation even at high loads.

2 Way Links2 Way Links

These items allow the alignment of two objects to be rotated 90 degrees relative to each other. They provide a convenient, more compact solution that has traditionally been addressed by linking two shackles. They also provide pivoting movement in two planes – about each of the pins.
