Lifting Shackles are connecting links used to join the item or product being lifted with a lifting device such as a hoist hook or sling. There are two main types:
- “D” Shackles or Dee Shackles
- Bow Shackles
The shackle is fixed to the lifting object by removing the pin, passing the pin through the object and then re-fixing. There are two main types of pin-fixing mechanisms:
- Screw pin – where the pin screws into the body of the shackle like a bolt into a nut.
- Safety pin – where the pin passes through the body of the shackle and is locked into place by either a split pin or nut c/w split pin.
Capacities of 0.3 to 150 tonnes are available.
All our shackles come identified with a serial or batch number and all slings and lifting equipment or accessories supplied by Granada come complete with a valid test certificate.
Granada carries a small range of regularly supplied products and spares in stock but due to the huge and diverse range of products we offer cannot hold a full stock of all items at all times. Any non-stock items can be ordered very quickly and through our local network of suppliers.
Shackles are classified as a “lifting accessory” and are covered by LOLER regulations. All slings should be thoroughly examined by a competent person at periods not exceeding 6 months.
