Features of Stainless Steel Twisted Shackles

This twisted shackle is manufactured from stainless steel to AISI 316, with a polished finish; though cannot be approved for lifting applications as they haven't been tested. 

We do stock load-tested stainless steel shackles, including high tensile dee units and bow design examples. Of course in the case of these twisted shackles, lifting regulations are not relevant since they have different uses in specific scenarios, as you will find out next. 

Stainless steel is a good material for shackles because it can be maintained without any hassle and its finish will keep it looking good whatever the weather. Dirt and grease can be wiped away where necessary and the lifespan of the shackle should be extended thanks to this. 

Uses of a Twisted Shackle

They can be used as a connector for two objects where one needs to be turned to be in a 90 degree orientation the first object, this occurs because the top curve of the shackle's shank is perpendicular to the screw pin. They are perfect for reducing twisting in yacht rigging and are commonly utilized on many sea-faring vessels. 

Available in a range of sizes with the opening end shank width ranging from 10mm up to 24mm enabling the connection of many different sized objects. Just below this summary you will find all the technical data you need, arranged in a simple table. This should streamline the selection process, although if you still have questions about twisted shackles, contact us for help.
