 Unlike other D shackles with safety bolts the location of the retaining cotter pin is not situated through the end of the pin; instead the cotter/split pin is inserted through a specially drilled hole which goes straight through the nut and pin. This design ensures that the bolt cannot become loose and unscrew itself even if there is friction against the bolt. 

Benefits of BS Large D Shackles with Safety Bolts

These British Standard BS large d shackle with safety bolt are perfect for creating that final connection point in many lifting configurations with the knowledge that they are going to stay put.

Manufactured from high tensile steel the body and bolt are self coloured  though we can supply this type of shackle with a hot dipped galvanised finish on request. They generally conform to B.S. 3032 table 2 - 1958. 

Opting to invest in a galvanised version of this type of shackle will help prolong its resilience and reliability. Corrosion could be an issue in your industry, in which case it is worth investing in this additional protection.

Load Capacities & Safety Considerations 

These shackles have a safety factor of 5:1 where the minimum breaking load (MBL) = 5 x WLL (working load limit). EC declarations are supplied on dispatch. 

This will give you peace of mind about the quality of the shackles you are buying. Take a glance at the table of technical data found further down the page if you need to know more about the specific diameters and capabilities that are available across this range of BS large dee shackles with safety bolts included.
