These latest photos we've received were a little surprising. While we know stainless steel shackles are used in a wide variety of the industries we serve, fishing is not one that immediately comes to mind- especially when you’re used to hearing from customers in the rigging and lifting field.

Dalton from Texas sent us these great photos of a 5'8" bull shark he caught in Matagorda, Texas. He says he used one of our stainless steel shackles: the 3/16" stainless steel bolt type anchor shackle to connect the hook drops to the rest of the shark leader.

This particular type of shackle is a great choice for an application like this since it offers an excellent combination of strength and protection against corrosion due to the Type 316 marine-grade stainless steel.

The bolt pin design also allows for added securement since a nut is screwed on the end and a pre-drilled hole allows for a cotter pin to keep the bolt form loosening with extended use. Dalton mentioned that this is just one of the many sharks he has caught with our shackles.

We’re just hoping he keeps sending us pictures! If you have pictures of our products in use- send them our way! Send us an e-mail at CustomerService@USCargoControl.com or post them to our US Cargo Control Facebook page.
