To find out more about this d shackle, read on. Remember to check out the table of technical data further down the page if you are looking for the complete specifications of the range.
These shackles are commonly used by fishermen in the sea-fishing and trawling industries. They are used on trawl doors, connecting nets to winching systems and also for the connection of otter boards and/or bridle systems; these trawling dee shackles are also used for connecting dredging equipment and twin rig bottom trawlers.
As they are the D shaped shackle they are for straight, inline pulling applications only.
They are suitable for the marine environment due to them being manufactured form high tensile steel which has been quenched and tempered to grade 6 specifications, with a hot dipped galvanised finish. They have a 6:1 safety factor – where the minimum breaking load = 6 x the normal working load limit of the shackle.
This combination of resilience and safety is especially relevant in the context of trawling. Sea fishing in an activity that comes with many dangers and elements of unpredictability that are out of the control of those involved in the industry, so getting the best equipment for the job is one way of limiting risks.
Furthermore the fact that these shackles are fully galvanised means that they should be able to combat corrosion and stay in one piece for longer. From the perspective of cost, this has its benefits.
