Types of Shackles

Different Types of Shackles

Shackles are generally made up of a shackle body and a pin, so different types of shackle differ in these two parts.

Chain Shackle

The chain shackle, also known as the screw pin D shackle or dee shackle, is shaped like a D and is suitable for straight line pulling and should not be used for side stretch loading, the centre line of the load should always be in line with the centre line of the chain shackle.

Anchor Shackles

Anchor shackles, also known as the bolt anchor shackle, are, as the name implies, a bow shaped shackle with an almost circular shape. This type of shackle including d anchor shackle can be used to support side loading or for multi-legged slings.

How to Choose Shackles?

Steps of Choose Shackles

1. Select the right slings by defining what kind of load you want to lift, its shape, size and weight.

2. once you have selected the sling, you can start choosing shackles. if the load needs to be pulled in a straight line, a chain shackle works best, if it needs to be pulled in multiple directions, an anchor shackle is a better choice.

3. the material and finish of the shackles are also a choice, commonly galvanized steel, powder coated and stainless steel. Of these, stainless steel is most suitable for marine applications and harsher use scenarios, as it has excellent corrosion and wears resistance.

Select According to Conditions

If you are using a shackle that needs to be easily attached and detached, then a screw pin is a good choice; if you are in an industry that requires long-term or permanent attachment, then a bolt-type pin is a better choice; if you are lifting a shackle, then a forged carbon steel shackle body and a pin made of alloy steel are a reliable choice. If you are lifting shackles, then forged carbon steel shackle bodies and alloy steel pins are a reliable choice.
