Shackles

Shackles are manufactured to several standards which all have different dimensions.

The recognised standards are:

  • BS 3032
  • Fed Spec RR-C-271D IV
  • EN13889:2003 +A1:2008

The style of shackle to be used will depend on the intended application. Bow shackle – can be used within an angle of up to 45⁰ from vertical on the bow. D shackle – only suitable for use ‘in line’

These then have different pin fittings, typically

  • Screw pin
  • Safety

Shackles are rated to a Working Load Limit (WLL)
