A shackle is a U-shaped piece of metal secured with a screw pin bolt across the opening, or a hinged metal loop secured with a quick-release locking pin mechanism. They are used as a connecting link in all manner of rigging systems, from boats and ships to industrial crane rigging. The two types of shackles we supply are D-Shackles and Bow Shackles. D-Shackles: Also known as a chain shackle, our D-Shackles range from 0.5t to 25t. D-shackles are narrow shackles shaped like a loop of chain, usually with a pin or threaded pin closure. D-shackles are very common and most other shackle types are a variation of the D-shackle. The small loop can take high loads primarily in line. Side and racking loads may twist or bend a D-shackle.
