It is preferable to use this type of shackle for lifting operations where there may be friction applied to the pin/bolt; a standard screw pin could potentially un-screw in this scenario, whereas the safety bolt variety remains in place.
The green pin in these lifting shackles emphasises the high quality in both the materials and the manufacturing process.
The body & pin are made from grade 6, quench & tempered high tensile steel for quality assurance and conform to all the relevant standards as with the green pin dee shackle with screw pin.
Lifting Gear Direct can supply these shackles in many sizes and working load limits up to 85 tonne. The total lengths of the shackle range from just 81mm up to a large 427mm; you can see all the other relevant sizes in the dimensions table and drawing below.
The size of the shackle is not only relevant in terms of the type of load it can bear, but also the situations in which it will be appropriate for use. Take careful measurements before you make a decision, as you do not want to pick a product which is either too small or too large for the lifting assembly you are creating.
Lifting Gear Direct is a treasure trove of great shackle products. You can find dee shackles across a number of different price brackets, with yellow pin units sitting below their green pin equivalents in terms of price and performance. Cheaper still are our commercial dee shackles, which are not built for load bearing but can still take on general anchoring tasks affordably.
If you want to handle loads at an angle, our bow shackles are just as varied as our dee shackle range. Yellow pin and green pin products are found in this category, so you will have no need to look elsewhere for shackles of whatever size or specification you need.
