These are essentially bow shackles though they have a wider and flatter bearing surface for the sling, this increases the efficiency of the webbing sling by spreading the distribution of the loads weight across the internal fibres of the webbing. This should help limit the amount of wear and tear that the webbing is subjected to over time. It will also allow the shackle to stay in a good condition for longer, which is important from a cost perspective, as well as when it comes to safety.
These shackles easily meet all necessary requirements including proof loading, temperature requirements and critical performance requirements & fatigue life.
These sling saver shackles come in 2 varieties, a screw pin sling saver shackle and a bolt type sling saver shackle, with the latter incorporating a safety pin. Lifting Gear Direct can supply these sling saver shackles with working load limits rising up to 50 tonne. The most compact unit weights in at less than a kilo, while the largest tips the scales at 26kg.
Whichever configuration you choose, please ensure that it is suitably sturdy for your needs. Using guesswork when it comes to load limits and lifting safety is not acceptable.
Sling saver shackles serve a fairly specific purpose, so they might not be quite what you are looking for. In that case, you can still stick around on the Lifting Gear Direct site and find a shackle that is better adapted to your needs.
In amongst our shackle range we provide stainless steel shackles that are easy on the eye and also better at rebuffing corrosive environmental elements. We also offer dee shackles of different types, including budget-friendly commercial varieties and market-leading green pin units.
